This is a Win32 specific question:
I'm making this ICQ look-a-like program and having a minor problem - How do I get a minimizebox on a window with the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW style?

Thanks in advance!

I haven't worked much with toolbar windows, however, can't you use WS_MINIMIZE style attribute
in your call to CreateWindowEx()? According to the documentation you also have to use WS_SYSMENU if you plan to use WS_MINIMIZE.

Nope... can't use the WS_MINIMIZE (w/ the WS_SYSMENU) at least not with the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW attribute. Any ideas?
