    Finally (and hopefully) i'm getting a team together that knows a little of this and a little of that; and maybe all my open source projects that are half written can begin to be released. :)

im working on a video capture program(just for fun/learning) and i want to make a form that has a visible border that you can click on to drag and resize the form and also be able to click in the middle of the form(inside the border) and click through it.

i know how to use the setLayeredWindows and SetLayeredWindowsAttributes functions but the problem im having is i can either get the whole form clickthroughable(woohoo add that one to the dictionary :P) or non of it.

does anyone know how to pass mouse actions through a designated area on a form?

or anyone have any ideas for a workaround to the problem?

if i need to i can post a picture to demonstrate what i need if you can't understand what im trying to do.(im terible with describing problems :()


Thank you in advanced,

Corky.
