How do you make a glass form in VB.NET? Like the vista/win7 effect, but extended into the form. I saw a tutorial for C#, but can't find one for VB.NET
I saw a tutorial for C#
In a web site? Could you please post a link to the tutorial.
That was for Vista glass frame with WPF. I thought that if it would not have been dependent on Vista (and WPF), you could have tried to convert C# code to VB.NET. Either with .NET code converter or manually.
You could probably make a "Vista glass frame form" by yourself. At least Form control has Opacity property. I needed once themes and skins for forms and used Adding custom skins for Forms in VB.Net as a starting point. It does use Panel control which may not support opacity, but if you find a suitable control for custom form's caption bar, you could make a similar form to what you have in Vista.
Hm.... thanks. I did try to convert the code, but it didn't work. I'll try the form skinner and get back to you.
Hi , if you are using windows vista or 7 , you should try glass effect extender By Ragheed Al-Tayeb at the codeproject , here is the link http://www.codeproject.com/KB/dialog/rtaGlassEffectLib.aspx .
Note : if you don't get your form glass , add the "glassing" code to a timer.
