I was wondering how I could dim the entire desktop. Something like UAC, when the message pops up, you have the window and then the rest is dimmed. I am using C# and I assume that this could be done in directx.

Depending on what you're trying to do, using a transparent window may be overkill. You could achieve the same effect if your top window is intended to be short lived by taking a screen capture of the desktop and rendering on top of that.
