Hi, FrontBack. Take a look at this post regarding Managing Multiple GUIs.

FrontBack,

Something like this perhaps: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

HotKeySet("ESC", "_Exit")

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

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Click on the text to drag this transparent GUI" & @CRLF & "Press ESC to exit", 10, 10)

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Child", 10, 50, 80, 30)

_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hGUI, 0xABCDEF, 250)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
            _SendMessage($hGUI, $WM_SYSCOMMAND, 0xF012, 0)
        Case $cButton
            $hChild = GUICreate("Test Child", 200, 200, 10, 10, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI)
            GUISetState()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Closer to what you are looking for? :huh:
