Hi,

There are plenty of examples in the forum, search for these keywords "layered png".

Hi,

Br, FireFox.

#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

Global Const $AC_SRC_ALPHA = 1
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
_GDIPlus_Startup()

$pngSrc = @ScriptDir & "\line.png"
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NCHITTEST, "WM_NCHITTEST")
$GUI = _GUICreate_Alpha("Look at the shiny", $pngSrc)
GUISetState()
GUICtrlSetState(1, $GUI_ONTOP)

While 1
   Sleep(100)
   WEnd

Func _GUICreate_Alpha($sTitle, $sPath, $iX=276, $iY=780, $iOpacity=255)
    Local $hGUI, $hImage, $hScrDC, $hMemDC, $hBitmap, $hOld, $pSize, $tSize, $pSource, $tSource, $pBlend, $tBlend
    $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($sPath)
    $width = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage)
    $height = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage)
    $hGUI = GUICreate($sTitle, $width, $height, $iX, $iY, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
    $hScrDC = _WinAPI_GetDC(0)
    $hMemDC = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleDC($hScrDC)
    $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hImage)
    $hOld = _WinAPI_SelectObject($hMemDC, $hBitmap)
    $tSize = DllStructCreate($tagSIZE)
    $pSize = DllStructGetPtr($tSize)
    DllStructSetData($tSize, "X", $width)
    DllStructSetData($tSize, "Y", $height)
    $tSource = DllStructCreate($tagPOINT)
    $pSource = DllStructGetPtr($tSource)
    $tBlend = DllStructCreate($tagBLENDFUNCTION)
    $pBlend = DllStructGetPtr($tBlend)
    DllStructSetData($tBlend, "Alpha", $iOpacity)
    DllStructSetData($tBlend, "Format", 1)
    _WinAPI_UpdateLayeredWindow($hGUI, $hScrDC, 0, $pSize, $hMemDC, $pSource, 0, $pBlend, 2)
    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC(0, $hScrDC)
    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hMemDC, $hOld)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hBitmap)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hImage)
    _WinAPI_DeleteDC($hMemDC)
EndFunc ;==>_GUICreate_Alpha

Is there a way to make $GUI = _GUICreate_Alpha("Look at the shiny", $pngSrc) - not show up in the taskbar? Also is it possible to have this always on top of windows? I tried: GUICtrlSetState(1, $GUI_ONTOP)

Sure, add TOPMOST and TOOLWINDOW exstyles.

GUICtrlSetState, like its name is made for GUI controls, not the GUI itself.

GUI exstyles. Take a look at the GUICreate function in the helpfile to understand what I mean.
