Non-Resizable, Non-Movable Window

If you want to work with nonresizable, nonmovable windows, insert this code into your project (SDI or MDI applications).

int CMainFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
  if (BaseClass::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
    return -1;

  // Do something

  // Remove positions of menu
  CMenu* pTopMenu = GetSystemMenu(FALSE);
  if(pTopMenu != NULL)
  {
  pTopMenu -> RemoveMenu(SC_SIZE, MF_BYCOMMAND);      //Size
  pTopMenu -> RemoveMenu(SC_MOVE, MF_BYCOMMAND);      //Move
  pTopMenu -> RemoveMenu(SC_MAXIMIZE, MF_BYCOMMAND);  //Maximize
  }

  return 0;
}

BOOL CMainFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
  if( !BaseClass::PreCreateWindow(cs) )
    return FALSE;

  // Create a window without max button and sizable border
  cs.style &= ~(WS_MAXIMIZEBOX|WS_THICKFRAME);

  return TRUE;
}

  • How to prevent positioning of an external program's window

    Posted by Legacy on 07/12/2001 12:00am

    But what about manipulating an external program's window?

    e.g. I am running an external program MATLAB in the background and have successfully obtained a handle and set its window position using

    ::SetWindowPos(hNextApp, HWND_TOP, 745, 110, 520, 350, SWP_NOMOVE);

    However, I can't prevent the user from moving, minimizing or closing the window i.e. SWP_NOMOVE isn't working!

    Any suggestions?
    Thank you for your precious time!!
