     This little class provides basic window 'magnetic docking' (like WinAmp). Glueing is also supported. Simply, use AddWindow() method specifying handle of new window and its parent, if any. __________________________________________________ Based on original post by Benjamin Wilger. Thanks again to Paul Caton for the 'self-subclassing' template (IDE-safe). __________________________________________________ Update #1. Improved: hereditary glueing is now supported. __________________________________________________ Update #2. Improved: removed 'RemoveWindow()' method. Now, class processes WM_DESTROY message and automaticaly removes window. __________________________________________________ Update #3. Fixed: incorrect checking of 'hereditary glueing'. I hope it's working fine now! Sorry. __________________________________________________ Update #4 (last?): now, WinAmp's *behaviour* is fully emulated (I hope!). Hereditary magnetism, as well as glueing, is working for ALL child (connected) windows. __________________________________________________ Update #5. Never say final update: added CheckGlueing() method. Call in case repositioning manually a window and want to enable/check (glue) again, if any. This was only checked for first time when a new window was added to the collection. __________________________________________________ Update #6: Back to manual window destroying (problems on W9x). __________________________________________________ Update #7: Special cases: 1) Added processing of WM_SYSCOMMAND and WM_COMMAND messages. Thanks to LaVolpe for suggesting solution 2) Maximized windows (edge offset out of screen area).

  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
