I'm trying to make an addon to mirc. I need to emulate mirc's status window. But what kind of window is it? The part of the window shows connection info and motd's and such.

Where you can select text with your cursor, but on release, it releases your selection area.

I tried editbox,richedit box, activex framed types... what kind of window is that? Am i missing something simple?

Im not talking about script-wise... i'm trying to create it with C++ on visual C++ btw

It's a static. It's all custom drawn.

If you have Visual C++ (or Visual Studio) you should also have a tool called "Spy++" which lets you find the type of any window by dragging a target onto it.

I'm using the express edition, so no MFC either... so i dont think i have that option. I use windows forms basicly. I cant figure it out though.
