In MS Word 97, when I drag any toolbar (such as drawing toolbar) and drop it on the main client window, it becomes a window with small title bar. It makes me surprised that when I click on a button on the toolbar, the cursor on MS Word window still blink and MS Word window is still active. Vice versus, when I type, the toolbar window is still active. I try to create a window like that in Delphi as follows:
Declaring an override method in Private section of a form:
Procedure Tform1.CreateParams(var Params:TcreateParams);override;
in implementation section:
Procedure Tform1.CreateParams(var Params:TcreateParams); begin inherited CreateParams(Params); with Params do Exstyle:=WS_Ex_TOOLWINDOW; end;
However, this window becomes de-active when I click on the main form.
