Win10 DWM Blur with Rounded Corners Help?

Recommended Posts


I am attempting to create a translucent GUI with the blur effect, and I got everything but the rounding to work correctly.

Anyone know how to get rid of the black corners?

Thank you!

This is what I have so far:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WinAPIGdi.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

If _WinAPI_DwmIsCompositionEnabled() Then $iHasDWM=1
Local $iHeight=300
Local $iWidth=300
$hGUI = GUICreate("Windows 10 Blur", $iWidth, $iHeight,-1,-1,$WS_POPUP)

If $iHasDWM Then
    Local $hRgn = _WinAPI_CreateRoundRectRgn(0,0,$iWidth+1,$iHeight+1,50,50)
    Local $hFormRgn=_WinAPI_CreateRectRgnIndirect(_WinAPI_GetClientRect($hGUI))
    Local $hRgnTest=_WinAPI_CreateNullRgn()
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

@Biatu, Have you tried setting the window to the same rounded region, you probably have the window as a rectangular region and therefore the repaint isn't happening 'around' the window

    _WinAPI_SetWindowRgn ( $hGUI, $hRgn, True )

[most likely put prior to _WinAPI_CombineRgn($hRgnTest,$hRgn,$hFormRgn,$RGN_XOR)] {edit}

if that doesn't work try forcing a repaint or changing the backcolor and see if it changes

    _WinAPI_RedrawWindow ($hGUI) ;


Sorry, I don't have Win10 to test on

All options interfere with _WinAPI_DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow10($hGUI) and thus no blur
