OVERLAY

Hi all,

My question is How to perform overlay displa with Delphi ?

My goal : I wrote a little video player that allow me to use my cordless mouse as a remote control (sound volume adjustment, video position adjustment, pause, play...)
when I modify the sound level, I would like to view the sound value 'over' the video still playing, just like on the TV
Note : I know how to get the sound value, What I need is how to display a string using overlay

thanks for all ideas.

@ginsonic, instead of arranging things in private and thus making this Q useless for EE, why not put your project on some website and post the URL to it here?

Alex : Often, the best answer is an example source code (sometimes a full project) , It would be nice to experts being abble to join a file (ie .zip) to their comment.

Ginsonic :
1) thanks for the demo project, but can you tell me witch Delphi version should I Use to compile it ?
it doesn't seems to works with Delphi5 Cause of Form2.TransparentColor and Form2.TransparentColorValue

2) This is NOT an overlay : an overlay display should works directly with the video card. I will try your example but I am affraid that it will not works over a video playing.

I tested with D6Pro. And it work over any video playing. In fact the original demo ( I told you that is not mine ) come with a video player and show the sound picture over the video. I cut just the interested part.

Abot a real overlay is a little more complex :(
