    /// <summary>Specifies a window that accepts drag-drop files.</summary>

    /// Specifies a window that paints all descendants in bottom-to-top painting order using double-buffering.
    /// This cannot be used if the window has a class style of either CS_OWNDC or CS_CLASSDC. This style is not supported in Windows 2000.
    /// </summary>
    /// <remarks>
    /// With WS_EX_COMPOSITED set, all descendants of a window get bottom-to-top painting order using double-buffering.
    /// Bottom-to-top painting order allows a descendent window to have translucency (alpha) and transparency (color-key) effects,

    /// the cursor changes to a question mark with a pointer. If the user then clicks a child window, the child receives a WM_HELP message.
    /// The child window should pass the message to the parent window procedure, which should call the WinHelp function using the HELP_WM_HELP command.
    /// The Help application displays a pop-up window that typically contains help for the child window.

    /// <summary>
    /// Specifies a top-level window created with this style does not become the foreground window when the user clicks it.
    /// The system does not bring this window to the foreground when the user minimizes or closes the foreground window.
    /// The window does not appear on the taskbar by default. To force the window to appear on the taskbar, use the WS_EX_APPWINDOW style.

    /// </summary>
    WS_EX_NOACTIVATE = 0x08000000,
