     This Code shows
how to make real transparent forms without needing Win98 or W2k; it does not flicker and it automatically updates while moving. Even the Buttons are translucent! This code is another good example how to use my FoxCBmp3.dll, too, furthermore it demonstrates an alternative way to create cool effects with Buttons (like graphics, transparency, mask...)
