Hi,

Check this example:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
$NewStyle = False
$Gui = GUICreate("Gui Style", 260, 100)
$Style = GUICtrlCreateButton("Set Style", 45, 50, 150, 20)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case - 3
            Exit
        Case $Style
            If Not $NewStyle Then
                WinSetStyle($Gui, $WS_POPUPWINDOW + $WS_THICKFRAME, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE + $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
                GUICtrlSetData($Style, 'Undo Style')
                $NewStyle = True
            Else
                WinSetStyle($Gui)
                GUICtrlSetData($Style, 'Set Style')
                $NewStyle = False
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

;Set Window Styles
Func WinSetStyle($hWnd, $Style = -1, $ExStyle = 0)
    Local Const $GWL_STYLE = -16
    Local Const $GWL_EXSTYLE = -20
    Local Const $SWP_NOMOVE = 0x2
    Local Const $SWP_NOSIZE = 0x1
    Local Const $SWP_SHOWWINDOW = 0x40
    Local Const $SWP_NOZORDER = 0x4
    Local $iFlags = BitOR($SWP_SHOWWINDOW, $SWP_NOSIZE, $SWP_NOMOVE, $SWP_NOZORDER)
    If $Style = -1 Then $Style = $WS_MINIMIZEBOX + $WS_CAPTION + $WS_POPUP + $WS_SYSMENU
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "SetWindowLong", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $GWL_STYLE, "int", $Style)
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "SetWindowLong", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $GWL_EXSTYLE, "int", $ExStyle)
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "SetWindowPos", "hwnd", $hWnd, "hwnd", 0, "int", 0, "int", 0, _
            "int", 0, "int", 0, "int", $iFlags)
EndFunc

The function WinSetStyle() can set styles not only for AutoIt GUI, and for other windows to <_<

The function not writen by my.
