Hi,

You don't need a tutorial, creating N windows is just creating 1 window N times ;)

It works, but the windows are on status bar. I rather want to don't show it on the status bar - 2 windows per application whit 1 on status bar.

This is a different thing. What you want is MDI, which is not supported by SFML.

However you can use a GUI framework like Qt to create the MDI windows, and then embed SFML into them.

So if I create window with MDI, will can I connect HWND with SFML?

I have been tring to do that, But it this tutorial you've just create static controls and 'put' into them sf::RenderWindow class and then in "real-time loop" you have update it. But I won't have control to many MDI child window. So how to redraw it? I will have HWND only when I will create it. How to do this?

Can I redraw it on WM_PAINT event?

Yes, I think that this is the best solution in your situation.
