Forms in C++ Builder 3

Forms in C++ Builder 3

Is it possible to hide a form title bar in C++Builder 3?
I want to use a form containing name and address fields from a database as the header in several other forms.

RE: Forms in C++ Builder 3

Yes, you can but you must edit both your .h and .cpp code. In your header file (.h) you should see a section the says...

private // User declarations

Just below this add...
void __fastcall CreateParams(TCreateParams &Params);

Next you will need to edit your .cpp file. Go to the bottom of the file and add the following lines...
void __fastcall TForm1::CreateParams(TCreateParams &Params)
TForm::CreateParams(Params); // base class
Params.Style &= ~WS_CAPTION; // remove caption

BTW, this code came from the book "Borland C++ Builder How-To: The Definitive C++ Builder Problem Solver"by Miano, Cabanski, & Howe. It is set up in a How-to format. The above code came from the article entitled "How do I make a splash screen?" Recommended reading IMHO.
