Hi there.

I'm trying to add support for per-pixel transparent windows so that we can have antialiased non rectangular windows in our application and I'm wondering if there is some support, or helper class in Toolkit Pro that can assist me.

I have tested layered windows using UpdateLayeredWindow() and WS_EX_LAYERED but it does a particularly complete solution for child windows. Even after calling SetParent to get it into the correct parent window, moving the parent window does not move child window contents for you even though drawing will clip the parent - go figure. You need to manually draw the window and knowing exactly when to do this (The transparent window, is within several layers of windows) is not straight forward.

Any guidance appreciated.

Product: Xtreme ToolkitPro v13.3.0 (MFC)
Platform: Windows XP (32bit) - SP 3
Language: Visual C++ 6
