How about just drawing the image, leaving what's behind uncovered? What do you mean exactly?

You coudl do it like this:

1. Intercept the WM_ERASEBKGRND (sp?) message and stop it.
2. Override the paint method and set the clipregion to be the appropriate polygonal region (see CreatePolygonRgn for how to do this))
3. Permit the paint to do its thing
4. Unset the clipping region (this may not be strictly necessary...)

Cheers,

Raymond.

You could have a masked bitmap that will leave only that on the form...
The part you want to be left on the form should be white and everything to be hidded outside the  polygon should be black....than you AND the original image to the screen, and XOR the mask over the original and you'll get your polygon... If you want me to write you an example let me know..it's pretty easy ;-)
