[Solved] How can only a visual form be prepared.
« on: January 11, 2022, 09:44:54 am »
Hi All,
Is there a way to get to the controls behind a transparent form with the Alphablendvalue set to 100 and the form style set to fsSystemStayOnTop?
My goal is to keep the form in one corner of the screen as a transparent image.

If Ide=Lazarus 2.0.10 32 Bit and Os=Win 10 Home 64 Bit then Get up and do something useful! Because God is the helper of those who start again;

You mean you wish to click items on the desktop? Just below your application.

Please try attached project. There is a small rectangular area in the bottom right, so you can move your form around, alternatively resize it if needed.

PS: You can also close it via right click. The project is windows only.

Master GetMem,
Project does not open and forms do not load in Lazarus.
But if I create a new project and add your forms it works, but this time there is no transparency view.

Sorry I work with Lazarus Trunk. Should be fixed now.

Master, Your project worked this time very well, as I wanted. Thank you so much.

Master, you don't have to worry, every line you write is a blessing to me whether it works or not.

I want to ask something for the last time. If I put an image object in this form and upload an image, is it possible to show it transparently?

No because the above example works with region, basically the middle of the form is cut out. You can create a second transparent form and place it in the middle of the main form. When the main form moves, you should move the second form two. Give me a few minutes to try it.

Master, yes in appearance this is exactly what I want.
But this time, I can't access the bottom control like in the first example.
I know I want a lot but;
I would appreciate it if you could help me one last time if the accessibility of the controls at the bottom is possible.

I removed the possibility to resize the window, because the image size is fixed. If yo want to re-enable it jus,t replace WndCallback method from the previous example(unit1.pas)

Master GetMem,  Thank you very much for your hard work.
Looks like I'll have to do some trial and error.

Oh now I see! You cannot click through the form. Fixed in the attached project.

Master GetMem,
Yes, that's exactly what I wanted. The problem is solved. I thank you very much, but I cannot thank you enough.
I'd like to buy you coffee, I guess that's not possible right now! But I will plant for you from the oak sapling below and it will have a lifespan of about 1000 years. When he grows up and becomes a tree, he will remember his name as many as his leaves throughout his life.
