Non-rectangular Forms

P: n/a
dln
Could someone point me to a good reference point (books, websites, etc...)
that will show me how to create non-rectangular Windows forms using C#
(although I could probably figure things out if the code examples were in
any of the .net languages)? Ideally, I would like to learn how to create
non-rectangular main form, similar to Windows Media Player.

Thanks.

Look into SetWindowRgn and it's C# counterpart.

There are issues with the transparency when the color depth of the desktop
is set to high/true color, so you might need to test a lot.
