Hi, If you need the complete project email me.

' This goes into the General Declarations section:

Private Declare Function CreateEllipticRgn Lib "gdi32" _
(ByVal X1 As Long, ByVal Y1 As Long, ByVal X2 As Long, _
 ByVal Y2 As Long) As Long

Private Declare Function SetWindowRgn Lib "user32" _
(ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal hRgn As Long, _
 ByVal bRedraw As Boolean) As Long
                             
Private Sub Form_Load()
Show 'The form!
SetWindowRgn hWnd, _
CreateEllipticRgn(0, 5, 600, 200), _
True
End Sub

Have fun.

Any Points?
