Do you want your GUI transparent as in the image on the right side or do you want to code a program which make a given color transparent from any GUI?

code which makes any gui transparent would also work on my own gui. _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes example does that, but it didn't work on notepad, I guess i have to make it layerew window somehow.

E1M1,

I would make a GUI with a transparent client area like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WINAPI.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, -1, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("I am a GUI with a transparent client area", 10, 10)

_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hGUI, 0xABCDEF, 250)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Is that what you wanted? :)

Try this:

#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Local $hGUI, $hEdit, $hChild, $hLabel

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("", 400, 300, -1, -1)
$hChild = GUICreate("Notepad", 400, 300, -1, -1, Default, BitOR($WS_EX_MDICHILD, $WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOPMOST), $hGUI)
$hEdit = _GUICtrlEdit_Create($hChild, "", 2, 2, 394, 268, -1)
GUICtrlSetBkColor ($hEdit, 0xFFFFFF)
_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hChild, 0xFFFFFF, 255)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, 0, 400, 300, -1, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG)
GUISetState()

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($hEdit, "This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Lne")

; Loop until user exits
Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete()

It might work only on Vista+ os!

Further I'm not so familiar with GUIs and I don't know how to move and get focus on the GUI. If I will find it I will update the code.

E1M1,

That is a whole different problem. Search for "+click + through +transaparent" and you will find lots of posts about it - but they all seem to rely on the $WS_EX_TRANPARENT style which affects all parts of the GUI and not just the client area. ;)
