WinShape Description

WinShape Free Download.

WinShape is an easy and convenient helper tool for custom user interface / skin design. It builds a non-rectangular shape for window from provided bitmap image.

You don't need to build the shape consisting of polygons or other graphic primitives - shape will be generated from any bitmap - you have just to show which color should be considered as transparent. Unlike some other applications it doesn't generate heaps of code for shape construction - it makes just one resource file that must be included to project. Load a bitmap, select transparent color either in color selector or pick it directly, press "Start" and get the resource data. Then put few lines of code to your application and - voila! Nothing easier.

Same resource may be used in clipping functions, and any other available operations with regions, so there's no problem to make any interface you want in most of the development environments.
