How to Create Non-Rectangular VFP by mgagnon
Posted: 20 Apr 02

The following will make your VFP (or your own application )into an elliptical shape. Pretty useless, but interesting.


LOCAL lhWnd
LOCAL lhRgn
DECLARE LONG FindWindowA IN WIN32API STRING class, STRING title
DECLARE LONG CreateEllipticRgn in WIN32API INTEGER left, INTEGER top, INTEGER right, INTEGER bottom
DECLARE INTEGER SetWindowRgn in WIN32API LONG hWnd, LONG hRgn, INTEGER redraw
DECLARE INTEGER DeleteObject in WIN32API LONG hObject

lhWnd = FindWindowA(0, _VFP.Caption)
lhRgn = CreateEllipticRgn(1, 1, _VFP.Width, _VFP.Height)

? SetWindowRgn(lhWnd, lhRgn, 1)
? DeleteObject(lhRgn)
