Windows Sizing Border - how to get the value

Recommended Posts

Hi Alan,


Did you have any success? Here, on my XP Pro PC, the BorderWidth key reports a value of -15 which is puzzling. (I don't have a PaddedBorderWidth key.)


Try exploring this alternative approach (with appropriate changes for Vista/Win 7/8/10).

Control Panel > Display > Appearance > Advanced > Item > Active Window Border > Size and capture from that box into your variable.


Yet another quite different idea (not tried) would be to actually measure it, counting pixels from just outside the border in a known environment.
