Thanks for the link but I've checked out that page already and it didn't seem to be able to do what I'm trying to do.
Here's what I'm trying to do/what I've done...
I've disabled the toolbar and the border around the frame and implemented some code so that you can drag the frame around with the canvas instead of using the toolbar. The next step that I need to do is to be able to display an image that isn't see-through on a see-through canvas, an example of what I'm trying to do would be like this picture http://i.imgur.com/GGS92dx.jpg
. Basically it'll just show up as an image on the desktop wherever you place it.
So, as far as I know, making the whole canvas transparent won't work because I need to be able to display a non-transparent image onto the transparent canvas.
