IMAGE and IMAGEX control styles



Display only bitmap images. Also see %SS_ICON. (persistent)


If the image is smaller than the label, fill the rest of the label with the color of the pixel in the top left corner of the image. (IMAGE Controls only)


Display only icon images. Also see %SS_BITMAP. (persistent)


Send %STN_CLICKED and %STN_DBLCLK notification messages to the Callback Function when the user clicks or double-clicks the control.


Draw a half-sunken border around the control.


Add a thin line border around the control.


Create a control that is initially disabled. A disabled frame control is displayed with grayed text.


Define the start of a group of controls. The first control in each group should also use %WS_TABSTOP style. The next %WS_GROUP control in the tab order defines the end of this group and the start of a new group. Groups configured this way permit the arrow keys to shift focus between the controls within the group, and focus can jump from group to groups with the usual TAB and SHIFT+TAB keys. Both tab stops and groups are permitted to wrap from the end of the tab order back to the start.


Extended Styles


Apply a sunken edge border to the control.


The control has generic "left-aligned" properties. (default)


The control has generic "right-aligned" properties. This style has an effect only if the shell language is Hebrew, Arabic, or another language that supports reading order alignment.


Apply a three-dimensional border style to the control (intended to be used for items that do not accept user input).


Controls/windows beneath the dialog are drawn before the dialog is drawn. The dialog is deemed transparent because elements behind the dialog have already been painted - the dialog itself is not drawn differently. True transparency is achieved by using Regions - see MSDN and/or the Platform SDK documentation for more information.
