Window style - %ww[options]

This format code causes the resultant window to look like an application window, rather than a dialog window. The window can be maximised, etc.. %ww can be followed by an option list enclosed in square brackets (use an empty list if options are not used and the next character in the format string is an open square bracket '['). The following options are available:

casts_shadow

This option produces a window that casts a shadow. It is most effective when used in conjunction with no_frame and no_caption.

no_caption

Omit the caption from the window.

no_maxminbox

Omit the maximise and minimise boxes from the window.

no_maxbox

Omit the maximise box.

no_minbox

Omit the minimise box.

no_sysmenu

Omit the box at the top left that is used to produce the system menu.

no_border

Omit the blank border that normally surrounds the window contents, but leave the frame itself. Using this option you can, for example, force a tool bar (textual or bit-mapped) to be placed immediately beneath the menu.

no_frame

Omit the window frame and the blank border that normally surrounds the window contents. This option is particularly useful with certain types of child window.

no_edge

This option is like no_frame except that it leaves the default border (an empty space around the edge of the window).

topmost

Forces the window to stay on top, even if another application gets control. This is sometimes useful when it is necessary to execute another application without the user losing sight of the current window.

maximise
(or maximize)

Displays the window as a maximised window.

minimise
(or minimize)

Displays the window as a icon.
