I have a small project that I am working on and am trying to implement an AboutForm that is odd shaped, like the splash screen for VS2010 or Photoshop CS5 etc...
I have made an image (png) in Photoshop that has a drop shadow and a transparent background but cannot get it to work correctly.
I have read various tutorials on the web about Regions etc.. but for the life of me I don't seem to be able to sort it out.
I found one tutorial called Grab Region that had a demo project and this nearly works but still leaves some white border around my image.
I have tried applying a Panel with it's Background set to transparent, to a form, then applying my png to that, as one tutorial said but all that resulted was that the form's background would show through.
Surely there must be a process/step that I am missing as a vast majority of applications now come with either odd shaped splash screens or about forms.
Any pointers would be terrific.
