Hello,

Is anyone using transparent Windows as demonstrated in https://community.appeon.com/index.php/codeexchange/powerbuilder/209-pb-transparent-window

in a Windows 10 setting.

It does not appear to be setting the Window background to transparent, so likely something has changed in the API?

Any ideas?

Thanks

Greg

Hey Chris,

Is your framework demo using the same API?

 

I wonder what I'm missing?

Hi Greg;

My framework used to use the API way back when, but I changed that in the PB 12.x time frame to just use the Window Classes transparency property instead. Here is what the example "Zoom" window ancestor uses on the "Deactivate" event ...

THIS.transparency = ii_transparency // framework property

=> On the Activate event, I use ...

THIS.transparency = 0 // solid

HTH ... regards... Chris
