Does anybody know how to make the main application's form irregularly shaped (just like circular clock for Win 95) in Delphi 2 ?

Thanx, Bocian

Take a look at the SetWindowRgn API call.

The following code will create an elliptic window (adapted from UNDU issue #17) :

procedure MakeEllipticForm(Form: TForm);
Var
  R: HRgn;
begin
  R := CreateEllipticRgn(-15,-15,Width+15,Height+15);
  SetWindowRgn(Form.Handle,R,True);
end;
