MFC WindowStyler

Here'a a little utility I wrote. After getting so much helpful code from this site I thought it was about time I contributed.

The purpose of MFC WindowStyler is to allow users to experiment creating windows with different window styles and extended window styles, WS_styles and WS_EX_styles, with out having to recompile.

You can see the effects of combining styles in CWnd::CreateEx() and adding and removing styles with CWnd::ModifyStyle() and CWnd::ModifyExStyle(). The WindowStyler.zip contains a VC++ 6 project and executable

I used the CBitmapDialog class from Jvrg Kvnig for the wood background, just because I thought it looked cool. Thanks Jvrg!!
