    Translucent Windows

    Hey everyone

    About a month or so ago, I came across a code snippet somewhere on how to make windows translucent ( on a 0 - 255 scale, i think ), it was like 5 lines of code.

    I was wondering if anybody knows how to do this and/or may have the snippet.

    Thanks,

    Matt N

    Look up layered windows in the Windows SDK. The link is in Window Features. Type in Window Features in the index and it will lead you right to it.
