I was wondering if anyone could help. I'm sure it's simple, and something people will think I am stupid for not knowing how to do! How do I make a treeView or anything maximize with the actual window when it is maximized? I do not want to Dock in Parent, I still want some of the background of the window showing.
I am unsure why the title has "Visual Basic" in it. A window procedure receives the WM_SIZE message whenever the window changes width or height. Process this message and simply resize the treeview (or whatever controls).
He said that because there exists Visual Basic 2008 Express (to handle the visual basic language) and Visual Studio C++ 2008 Express (to handle the c++ language).
There is no "Visual Basic C++ 2008 Express" nor is there a Visual Basic C++ programming language. Maybe you downloaded a packaged that installed both VB and C++ (separately and mutually exclusive from each other).
Like webJose said, process the WM_SIZE message and u'll be able to resize any control or background u want.
It sounds like you don't know how to program Windows programs. I recommend that you learn how to program Windows applications first. I hear www.winprog.org is OK for teaching how to program for Windows. Check that site's tutorial first.
