See this : http://home.sleepwalkers.org/moo.jpg and http://home.sleepwalkers.org/moo2.jpg ...That is what I was talking about !

I made an application to alter mIRC's desktop windows to glue them right on the desktop background!

Kind'a cool !!!

I do not need the transparent feature anymore.

ps. If anyone wants this application, please let me know. I am on DALnet , channel #sleepwalkers , Nickname : "SyntaxError". I will give you the app for free. smile ( Just need some time to make it more user friendly )

Yeah I would like to see this application myself. Post a link to it so that we can all judge it. If it works anything like X-Chat 'transparency' then it isn't true transparency, Which you requested in your tirade a few weeks ago...

So don't feel that you have proved anything against what I posted before... ok? ... wink

I don't know what you mean ? *confused* It is true transparent. I pick a color and make the window transparent on that color. There is also alphablending possibilities here. Also, I kill off the caption and borders of the window. Simple! smile

Yes I know how that works, However that would make any text of the same color transparent also, Which is why I said it isn't a good solution.

It's ok if you know that your own windows theme, And mIRC colors don't use that RGB value, But it wouldn't be acceptable for a mass distributed script.

As I said before, On mircscripts.org there is already a DLL (mFUNC.dll) which supports that kind of transparency.

so, how does the DLL make the window transparent without using a color ? HEHE smile ...besides... my app is open source. I don't dare to use some unknown DLL on my computer! ... and... where were you when I yelled about needing transparent windows ?... Now when I make an app, you suddenly show up and complain. ...I think that sux0rz. But that's me !

I don't think we need to start another argument, do we? smile

If you have made an addon that gives the effect of what you displayed in the screenshots then that is very nice and I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate it. Thanks for putting in the work.

Regards,

And what exactly OS are you using (on those pictures)?
It looks like some linux x-windows to me, it can be winxp also, but I am confused by the low right corner where I can some numbers like desktop numbers on kde or gnome example.

Hi,

I promise I will as soon as I made it more userfriendly. I have a meeting tomorrow but I'll fix it up sometime before friday.

The application will be online on www.sleepwalkers.org or you can get it directly from me, from dalnet , #sleepwalkers , nickname : SyntaxError

my app is open source. I don't dare to use some unknown DLL on my computer!

Windows has hundreds of unknown DLLs.

Downloading a closed-source DLL made by some guy who is for all intents and purposes untraceable isn't exactly the same as using a closed-source DLL that is used by millions worldwide and made by a huge company who could be held responsible if it contained malicious code.
