    [Request] Window Shape Object w/Alpha

    I think it would be very useful for many people if the Window Shape Object can support alpha transparency and/or anti-aliasing.

    Any thoughts on this?

    does Windows support it?

    Really nice idea though.

    It definitely is possible. I don't know how, though.

    Re: [Request] Window Shape Object w/Alpha

    I have seen custom window shapes with anti-aliasing and shadows on several occasions (e.g. Galactic Civilizations)

    I wonder how difficult it would be to incorporate this into the current window shape object.

    winamp also has anti-aliased windows with custom shapes.

    Yes, this would be great.
    And it is definitely possible with windows xp (not 98).
    And if you look at Incredimail there are smooth animations possible also. Very nice!
    But the routines for simple window transparency or one-color-window-shapes are completely different from the ones for alpha-transparency-shapes.

    For simple shapes you only define a transparency color with the windows api like in a gif file. For alpha transparency you need to create a bitmap multiplied with alpha information in memory and point it to several functions.
    Maybe someone can write a extension.
    There are some examples in vb.net and c++ out there.

    I'm terrible at C++. Is anyone with the skills to do this available to develop this extension?
