Set this parameter to NULL to remove the entire client area.

Return Values

A nonzero value indicates success.

You must create the specified region by calling a region function, such as ExtCreateRegion.

ValidateRgn assumes that the region coordinates are client coordinates.

The BeginPaint function validates the entire client area.

Do not call ValidateRect or ValidateRgn if you require validation of a portion of the update region before the next WM_PAINT message is generated.
