Window styles

Window styles are used to specify alternative behaviour and appearances for windows, when they are created. The symbols are defined in such as way that they can be combined in a 'bit-list' using the C++ bitwise-or operator. For example:

  wxCAPTION | wxMINIMIZE_BOX | wxMAXIMIZE_BOX | wxTHICK_FRAME
For the window styles specific to each window class, please see the documentation for the window. Most windows can use the generic styles listed for wxWindow in addition to their own styles.
