Static Styles 

  • SS_BITMAP   Specifies a bitmap is to be displayed in the static control. The given text is the name of a bitmap (not a filename) defined elsewhere in the resource file. The style ignores the nWidth and nHeight parameters; the control automatically sizes itself to accommodate the bitmap.

  • SS_BLACKFRAME   Specifies a box with a frame drawn with the same color as window frames. The default is black.

  • SS_BLACKRECT   Specifies a rectangle filled with the color used to draw window frames. The default is black.

  • SS_CENTER   Designates a simple rectangle and displays the given text centered in the rectangle. The text is formatted before it is displayed. Words that would extend past the end of a line are automatically wrapped to the beginning of the next centered line.

  • SS_CENTERIMAGE   Specifies that, if the bitmap or icon is smaller than the client area of the static control, the rest of the client area is filled with the color of the pixel in the top left corner of the bitmap or icon. If the static control contains a single line of text, the text is centered vertically in the client area of the control.

  • SS_ENDELLIPSIS or SS_PATHELLIPSIS   Replaces part of the given string with ellipses, if necessary, so that the result fits in the specified rectangle.

    You can specify SS_END_ELLIPSIS to replace characters at the end of the string, or SS_PATHELLIPSIS to replace characters in the middle of the string. If the string contains backslash (\) characters, SS_PATHELLIPSIS preserves as much of the text after the last backslash as possible.

  • SS_ENHMETAFILE   Specifies an enhanced metafile is to be displayed in the static control. The given text is the name of a metafile. An enhanced metafile static control has a fixed size; the metafile is scaled to fit the static control's client area.

  • SS_ETCHEDFRAME   Draws the frame of the static control using the EDGE_ETCHED edge style.

  • SS_ETCHEDHORZ   Draws the top and bottom edges of the static control using the EDGE_ETCHED edge style.

  • SS_ETCHEDVERT   Draws the left and right edges of the static control using the EDGE_ETCHED edge style.

  • SS_GRAYFRAME   Specifies a box with a frame drawn with the same color as the screen background (desktop). The default is gray.

  • SS_GRAYRECT   Specifies a rectangle filled with the color used to fill the screen background. The default is gray.

  • SS_ICON   Designates an icon displayed in the dialog box. The given text is the name of an icon (not a filename) defined elsewhere in the resource file. The nWidth and nHeight parameters are ignored; the icon automatically sizes itself.

  • SS_LEFT   Designates a simple rectangle and displays the given text flush-left in the rectangle. The text is formatted before it is displayed. Words that would extend past the end of a line are automatically wrapped to the beginning of the next flush-left line.

  • SS_LEFTNOWORDWRAP   Designates a simple rectangle and displays the given text flush-left in the rectangle. Tabs are expanded, but words are not wrapped. Text that extends past the end of a line is clipped.

  • SS_NOPREFIX   Unless this style is specified, Windows will interpret any ampersand (&) characters in the control's text to be accelerator prefix characters. In this case, the ampersand is removed and the next character in the string is underlined. If a static control is to contain text where this feature is not wanted, SS_NOPREFIX may be added. This static-control style may be included with any of the defined static controls. You can combine SS_NOPREFIX with other styles by using the bitwise OR operator. This is most often used when filenames or other strings that may contain an ampersand need to be displayed in a static control in a dialog box.

  • SS_NOTIFY   Sends the parent window STN_CLICKED, STN_DBLCLK, STN_DISABLE, and STN_ENABLE notification messages when the user clicks or double-clicks the control.

  • SS_OWNERDRAW   Specifies that the owner of the static control is responsible for drawing the control. The owner window receives a WM_DRAWITEM message whenever the control needs to be drawn.

  • SS_REALSIZEIMAGE   Prevents a static icon or bitmap control (that is, static controls that have the SS_ICON or SS_BITMAP style) from being resized as it is loaded or drawn. If the icon or bitmap is larger than the destination area, the image is clipped.

  • SS_RIGHT   Designates a simple rectangle and displays the given text flush-right in the rectangle. The text is formatted before it is displayed. Words that would extend past the end of a line are automatically wrapped to the beginning of the next flush-right line.

  • SS_RIGHTJUST   Specifies that the lower right corner of a static control with the SS_BITMAP or SS_ICON style is to remain fixed when the control is resized. Only the top and left sides are adjusted to accommodate a new bitmap or icon.

  • SS_SIMPLE   Designates a simple rectangle and displays a single line of text flush-left in the rectangle. The line of text cannot be shortened or altered in any way. (The control's parent window or dialog box must not process the WM_CTLCOLOR message.)

  • SS_SUNKEN   Draws a half-sunken border around a static control.

  • SS_USERITEM   Specifies a user-defined item.

  • SS_WHITEFRAME   Specifies a box with a frame drawn with the same color as the window background. The default is white.

  • SS_WHITERECT   Specifies a rectangle filled with the color used to fill the window background. The default is white.

  • SS_WORDELLIPSIS   Truncates text that does not fit and adds ellipses.
