That would depend on what library you're using to create your GUI. wxWidgets? Qt? Native Windows stuff?
Check the documentation for the window class of whatever you're using.
Using either Some sort of graphic library or WinAPI calls before you show your window
I want to do it all with winapi
I would imagine Google would find you an answer in seconds.
Try combining the WS_POPUPWINDOW and WS_THICKFRAME styles. This is how I create such a window with CreateWindowEX:
_window = CreateWindowEx(
(WS_POPUPWINDOW | WS_THICKFRAME | WS_VISIBLE | WS_CLIPCHILDREN),

Not sure exactly, but no doubt it is some clever use of common controls like buttons, static, and syslink.
You can try Spy++ to see what controls and window styles are used.

i have tried Spy++ but cant seem to find much.
im not sure if that bottom part is a image or if there is a simple way to do it?
theres not much out there in this i have been searching for awhile
Does anyone have ideas?
Perhaps you'd be better off asking on a forum more specifically focused on Windows programming?
thanks for that
seems to be what im looking for just need to work it all out
quick question i been looking at some examples of
owner drawn buttons an custom buttons
what is difrent between them they both look the same?
hard to find Native winapi examples on this
anyone have any examples of what im trying to do?
im sure people have done it before
