[MiNT] Window with toolbar and redraw messages


Trying to make my life easier in my current project I've decided to create 
window dialogs by simply attaching a toolbar to a window and let the AES 
handle them without me fiddling with the position of the root object and 
handling redraws all the time.

However, there seems to be a limitation to this: since there is no workarea as 
such for those widows, they never receive a WM_REDRAW message, and sometimes 
they are needed to redraw specific elements of the toolbar.

The only way around this I can think of is designing these elements as 
G_USERDEFs, but I would prefer to avoid this if possible, because it 
introduces different complications that don't simplify making widow dialogs 
all that much.

So, is there a way to ask the AES to send a WM_REDRAW message that covers the 
*full* area of the window, or even better, the toolbar itself?
