Hi, I'd like to create a transparent window, but I don't know how to start. Can you show me how I create this program? I try to do by my own, step by step, but I could not create. Did you use MFC(EXE) OR MFC(DLL) in Visual C++ or something else?
First, I should thank you very much to the creater of this demo. You did a very userful job!
But, the proble I am having is, that the mouse cursor is always busy when it's within the window region. I'm using windows 98 when this occurs.
When I run the application under NT, I see the same thing too. Yet, there is slightly different. If I move the mouser cursor to the window, it's busy; then I move the mouser cursor out of that window and then move it back, the busy cursor is gone. However, this is not the end of the story.
I hit "ctr+alt+delete" to bring up the task manager in NT, I look at the CPU usage, it's 100% used! I'm sure it's by the application I'm running, any idea ???
Found your stuff interesting but was wondering if anyone has tried doing something similar in the context of an OLE server (to allow for a transparent in-place active editting session or the like)?
Actually I want to have the server function as a remote controlled cursor (inserted via ole) and need it drawn transparently (as an 'always-active' ole server).
Any thoughts (and help) on this would be appreciated. Esp how to fit this code into the doc/view architecture and get rid of those damn menus et al while still using the other benefits of mfc's doc/view.
