I want to make a form the size of a bitmap.  I don't want to see the form status bar up top and no part of the form around this bitmap.  The bitmap is not a rectangle so I do not know how to accomplish this...

hi michael,

 or use this http://www.lawrenz.com/coolform/index.htm

blackmans tip is also real handy. A must-read article when you want to do the stuff you want. But pitty, it doesn't explains how to give your form the curves of your bitmap. This component does everything you need (it is free).

regards, Zif.

I have decided my problem is a little different now that I got into it.  I have found a way to get my bitmap on the screen, but I need the form to be resizable.  It is easy to have the form resizeable if I have a form caption bar, but I do not want the bar up top.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Here's a couple of lines of code that'll remove the bar from the top:

SetWindowLong( Handle, GWL_STYLE,
GetWindowLong( Handle, GWL_STYLE ) and not WS_CAPTION );
ClientHeight := Height;

why don't you make the form invisible ?
this way, only the image will be visible.

you can also do

Form1.BorderStyle:= bsNone

to  remove the bar from the top.
