I need to place a large octagon (red) with the words STOP over the top of my vb form - displayed while awating and external event.
I want it to have no frame and no edges so that the rest of the form is displayed and it looks like the stop sign is floating above the form.
I need to be able to turn on / turn off - with the original frame re-appearing when the sign is off

I can do it with a circle or square are these pre-defined shapes but I need to do it with other shapes
