I would like to create a window, base on CView (for example), where the client zone is transparent.

How can I do that?

Thanks for any information.

Yes this is hard - you may want to look at CRgn and the Path functions of CDC. There is also some nice stuff on www.codeguru.com

jhattingh,

thanks for this project. It is really interesting. However I would like to find a real non rectangular dlg. This means that when I click on the non client region.

Do you know where I can find it?

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what you mean. The link I sent to you is certainly non-rectangular. Tell where the link failed you and I will see what I can come up with.

Ok forgot what I have just said. This project is really excellent. There is only some refresh problem when you move the window, but it doesn't matter.
