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;
}
