Opacity Property

Opacity property of a form, blends the blue bar (that has the close,
maximize and minimize buttons) also. How can I blend the form without
blending the above system blue bar?

Another question, how can I convert a specified client point into a
specified desktop coordinate?

Thanks for any reply,
Nuno Magalhaes.

Sorry, I don't know.

Control.PointToScreen (and .PointToClient to go the other way).

The only way to do what you want would be to use the LayeredWindow API's and
per-pixel alpha transparency.

I don't have any example of this at the moment.
