CCaptionPainterclass paints a flat looking caption. It re-engineers the functionality and layout of the standard buttons. And it removes the system menu and other of the weird never-used widgets of the normal Windows caption.
TaskBar IconAdds the application to the Windows Task Bar. Installs a new taskbar icon for the application, which reacts on mouseclicks by restoring the application window or presenting a popup menu. The main window is hidden when the application is minimized, but can be restored using the new taskbar icon.
