Trackbar Control Styles

This section contains information about the styles used with trackbar controls.

ConstantDescription
TBS_AUTOTICKS

The trackbar control has a tick mark for each increment in its range of values.

TBS_VERT

The trackbar control is oriented vertically.

TBS_HORZ

The trackbar control is oriented horizontally. This is the default orientation.

TBS_TOP

The trackbar control displays tick marks above the control. This style is valid only with TBS_HORZ.

TBS_BOTTOM

The trackbar control displays tick marks below the control. This style is valid only with TBS_HORZ.

TBS_LEFT

The trackbar control displays tick marks to the left of the control. This style is valid only with TBS_VERT.

TBS_RIGHT

The trackbar control displays tick marks to the right of the control. This style is valid only with TBS_VERT.

TBS_BOTH

The trackbar control displays tick marks on both sides of the control. This will be both top and bottom when used with TBS_HORZ or both left and right if used with TBS_VERT.

TBS_NOTICKS

The trackbar control does not display any tick marks.

TBS_ENABLESELRANGE

The trackbar control displays a selection range only. The tick marks at the starting and ending positions of a selection range are displayed as triangles (instead of vertical dashes), and the selection range is highlighted.

TBS_FIXEDLENGTH

The trackbar control allows the size of the slider to be changed with the TBM_SETTHUMBLENGTH message.

TBS_NOTHUMB

The trackbar control does not display a slider.

TBS_TOOLTIPS

Version 4.70. The trackbar control supports tooltips. When a trackbar control is created using this style, it automatically creates a default tooltip control that displays the slider's current position. You can change where the tooltips are displayed by using the TBM_SETTIPSIDE message.

TBS_REVERSED

Version 5.80. This style bit is used for "reversed" trackbars, where a smaller number indicates "higher" and a larger number indicates "lower." It has no effect on the control; it is simply a label that can be checked to determine whether a trackbar is normal or reversed.

TBS_DOWNISLEFT

By default, the trackbar control uses down equal to right and up equal to left. Use the TBS_DOWNISLEFT style to reverse the default, making down equal left and up equal right.

TBS_NOTIFYBEFOREMOVE

Version 6.00 and Windows Vista. Trackbar should notify parent before repositioning the slider due to user action (enables snapping).

TBS_TRANSPARENTBKGND

Version 6.00 and Windows Vista. Background is painted by the parent via the WM_PRINTCLIENT message.
