    Borderless buttons on CDialogBar

    I want to clean up the look of my dialog bar by having borderless buttons in my freeware app (www.noteliner.org). I'm using VC 2005. I tried ModifyStyle( 0, TBSTYLE_FLAT ) within the dialogbar OnCreate, and to remove the WS_BORDER style from the buttons but nothing seems to work.*In VC2005 am I able to have borderless buttons on a CDialogBar? Can you tell me how?*Thanks,Sam

    The "flat" style for button controls is BS_FLAT.

    Afraid BS_FLAT is not a borderless style.

    and to remove the WS_BORDER style from the buttons but nothing seems to work
    And it never would. Old Windows controls are very rigid in aspect of controlling their visual traits. A solution may be BS_OWNERDRAW only.
