PRB: Min/Max Boxes Do Not Work with DS_MODALFRAME


3.00 3.10 WINDOWS kbprg kbprb

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) versions 3.1, 3.11


When I use the WS_MIMIMIZEBOX or WS_MAXIMIZEBOX styles in a dialog box with a DS_MODALFRAME style, the up/down arrows are offset up and to the right when I click them with the mouse.


The WS_MINIMIZEBOX and WS_MAXIMIZEBOX styles cannot be used with the DS_MODALFRAME frame style. (Menus are also incompatible with this frame style. For more information, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

ARTICLE-ID: Q71499 TITLE : Menus Supported in Dialog Boxes w/o DS MODALFRAME Style


Use a different frame style, such as WS_BORDER.
