    Translucent Windows

    Hi,

    Im currently working on a project that requires a window to be translucent. I know this is possible with VB.Net but i was wondering if there is a way to do this using classic Win32? This is going to run on a 2000/XP machine, so there is no problem supporting it.

    Also, Im also wondering about a good way to render bitmaps to the window. I know windows has some bitblt functions, just that I have never used them. Can someone point me to a tutorial for this?

    Also, is there a way to make a form in VB.Net and have Win32 use it? like a way to export a form into a res file?

    Thanks in advance
