This section lists common control styles. Except where noted, these styles apply to rebar controls, toolbar controls, and status windows.

ConstantDescription
CCS_ADJUSTABLE

Enables a toolbar's built-in customization features, which let the user to drag a button to a new position or to remove a button by dragging it off the toolbar. In addition, the user can double-click the toolbar to display the Customize Toolbar dialog box, which enables the user to add, delete, and rearrange toolbar buttons.

CCS_BOTTOM

Causes the control to position itself at the bottom of the parent window's client area and sets the width to be the same as the parent window's width. Status windows have this style by default.

CCS_LEFT

Version 4.70. Causes the control to be displayed vertically on the left side of the parent window.

CCS_NODIVIDER

Prevents a two-pixel highlight from being drawn at the top of the control.

CCS_NOMOVEX

Version 4.70. Causes the control to resize and move itself vertically, but not horizontally, in response to a WM_SIZE message. If CCS_NORESIZE is used, this style does not apply.

CCS_NOMOVEY

Causes the control to resize and move itself horizontally, but not vertically, in response to a WM_SIZE message. If CCS_NORESIZE is used, this style does not apply. Header windows have this style by default.

CCS_NOPARENTALIGN

Prevents the control from automatically moving to the top or bottom of the parent window. Instead, the control keeps its position within the parent window despite changes to the size of the parent. If CCS_TOP or CCS_BOTTOM is also used, the height is adjusted to the default, but the position and width remain unchanged.

CCS_NORESIZE

Prevents the control from using the default width and height when setting its initial size or a new size. Instead, the control uses the width and height specified in the request for creation or sizing.

CCS_RIGHT

Version 4.70. Causes the control to be displayed vertically on the right side of the parent window.

CCS_TOP

Causes the control to position itself at the top of the parent window's client area and sets the width to be the same as the parent window's width. Toolbars have this style by default.
