Question/Idea - Eye Candy GUI question
« on: February 03, 2006, 03:11:00 PM »
This is really more of an eye candy thing, but I was wondering if AHK can create a non-square GUI, or, more specifically, can it display an image as the background of a dialog and make transparent the 'magic pink' portions of the image?

The idea here is to have a dialog with an image as a background, hopefully with hotspots for an eye candy launch bar.

ahk can make any colour in any window (including the ones in his own gui) to become transparent, and the pixels that have that color, transmit the mouse presses to the window below. So, i think it is possible to do what you are asking. (you didn't ask for ppl to do something, you just wanted information, right?)
Check here for the command specification. There, you can find a better explanation.
