Hi,
I've to create an application with not rectangular borders. This means that I have a bitmap like an arrow (for example) and I would like that the outside region is transparent (I cen see the desktop) but other features like dragging and so on are the same for a usual window. Have you got an example (with sources I can understand better) or some suggestion?
