this is the easest way to do it....

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
 begin
   Form1.Brush.Style := bsClear;
   Form1.BorderStyle := bsNone
 end;

BoRiS is right.
However, if you want the user to be able to click on the controls that are UNDER the transparent client area of your form (e.g. Desktop icons), say something. I've some other sources for that purpose...
