Remarks

Non-resizable windows

WinSize is used to modify the window size even if this window is a "non-resizable" window.
WINDEVReports and QueriesWindowsLinuxJavaUser code (UMC)

Display mode

If the window size exceeds the scree resolution and if "Automatic scrollbars" is checked ("Style" tab in the window description), some scrollbars are automatically added to scroll the window.
For example, a window was created in 800*600 full screen (or 240*600). Some scrollbars will appear when this window is displayed in 640*480 (or 240*320).
