Transparency, a way to refresh
« on: May 19, 2005, 04:49 PM »
Hi ;)

Eh, suggestion for next version, if not already tackled, a way to refresh the snapshot DC takes to make it look transparent, if taskbar is changed from autohide to always show or vice versa, there's a very visible tear between DC and the rest of the desktop as a result of background shifting.

edit:. oops, just noticed it gone again... Does it refresh automagically time to time?

that's interesting..

actually desktopcoral relies on the operating system to make it look transparent, so it might be a function of the windows graphics driver that is cause thing..  but i might be able to help your scenario by telling to to repaint itself when it resizes.. ill add it to the next version.
