Well, yes... B-O-R-E-D-O-M.
But check out what happens if you're bored and decide to do something freaky. (See attachment to the left).
<font size=3 color=darkgreen>Semi-translucent popup menus.</font>
Perhaps I'll post the source sometime. Just goes to show, where there's a will there's a way. images/icons/wink.gif

Hey, that's pretty cool!
Hand, you really should put together a package of cool interface tips that should never be used in a professional application! images/icons/smile.gif

Thats cool Hand, if a little disgusting look at images/icons/tongue.gif.
Know what would be cool? A menu that fades in and out of translucency.... heh. Or one with animated/moving textures... heh. Or maybe both...... sickening.

You just kept looking at that x-ray of the hand, until you went crazy and
decided to make menus look like that. images/icons/wink.gif images/icons/laugh.gif

Dude.. wicked as that is..... (and you really should package all your stuff together. Could make you a tidy profit... images/icons/wink.gif) you *really* need to get out more..... hee hee
Just kidding bud. Post the source! Post the source!
I did something similar a while back, only not with menus. Just a see through form hat you could drag around the desktop, and when you stopped dragging it, you could draw directly to the desktop. Done by setting a region in the form, then when it stops moving, take a picture of whats in the hole, and setting that to a picturebox on the form, which you then make visible and reset the old region of the form.
Something like that yeh?

Or, with 2 lines of code, you could have just enabled the LAYERED style of the window and given it translucency :P

If you happen to have windows 2000 or XP, sure you could use the layered stuff.
But there are still alot of people out there that still have 95/98/NT. I happen to be one of them.
