Has anyone ever looked into these. I''m looking for something like Winamp, so you don''t have any chrome or title bar. Thanks! --- Kaos, the mass confusion...

They''re not OpenGL, per se. (sp?) Look into the WS_POPUP style when calling CreateWindow().

Another thing you may want to do is using things like "ClipRegion" and "CreateRegion" and about half a dozen other region functions. This is useful when you want to cut away at a window, or button, or text box etc to get funky shapes.
This lets you make circles, airplanes, stars, rounded corners AND is faster than what alot of programs use with re-rendinering the background and drawing a faked image over it. It''s in the documentation for the Region section in the microsoft SDKs. (either msdn, or if you bought your compiler (any brand) it will have it too). Easy to use, and makes for some cool looking windows (I use them on screen mates - like flying aircraft that follow my mouse around the screen).
