I want to make a non-rectangle form in VB, I think place a Bitmap on the form and make color which I want to let it dispear on the form is a better way to do. But I'm not able to do this myself, who can help me,please? Thanks very much.

Put these declarations in a module .BAS:

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


     Public Declare Function SetWindowRgn Lib "user32" _
         (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal hRgn As Long, _
         ByVal bRedraw As Boolean) As Long


Put this code in a form:

Private Sub Form_Load()

         Show 'The form!
         SetWindowRgn hWnd, CreateEllipticRgn(0, 0, 300, 200), True

End Sub


Run the project!
Regards.

Oh,sorry!I didn't post my question clearly.I don't want to make a Rectangle or Elli form, I want to make a form like ICQ's star up pic or the K-jofol mp3 Player's.Not irregular form.
And thank you all the same.If you can solve this,please tell me the way.Thank you.
