Custom Titlebar Troubles

Hi,

I'm trying to create a custom titlebar for my form. I've hidden the form's
titlebar by clearing the text property and setting ControlBox=False.

This removes the titlebar as desired, but also has an unwanted side-effect.
When I run the app, the system menu does not appear when I right-click the
form in the taskbar.

How can I have a custom titlebar, and also have the system menu in the
taskbar??

Thanks!
