Hi all,
I'm trying to disable the ability to drag a window around but I haven't seem to find the correct code for it.
The ones that I have found is to do check for the WM_NCHITTEST message and if it belongs to the title bar, shift it to something else. I was hoping for a more direct solution.
Thanks in advance!

This one only refers to size, I still need something to prevent users from dragging the window in different positions.

Managed to to solved this.
Using the OnMoving function and ON_WM_MOVING message, just change the values of the function parameter of the LPRECT to the current window size.
void MyClass::OnMoving(UINT nSide, LPRECT lpRect)
	CDialog::OnMoving(nSide, lpRect);
	// TODO: Add your message handler code here and/or call default
	// Find Current location of the dialog
	CRect CurRect;
	// Set current location as the moving location
	lpRect->left = CurRect.left;
	lpRect->top =;
	lpRect->right = CurRect.right;
	lpRect->bottom = CurRect.bottom;
