I'm trying to make an app that looks like winxp apps.
So, you are my last chance to get the codes that I need.
These are my problems:
1.i need to make something like an alpha blend efect.
2.this is about the scroll bar.How can I repaint it(or
rebuilt it).Something like windowblinds.
3.i need to make some xp buttons.
4.i have an image that takes the place of the xp border and i need to move the app with it.I tryed the wm_nchittest but that moves the form from it's every point not from only the image.

I'll apreciate any code. Even if you can not help me, 10x 4 the time spent reading my request.
