    I'm writing a program for XP, and to do it right I need to know how to have a portion of a window be completely transparent and yet still "solid" such that any activites in the transparent region affect the window and not the objects beneath it. Is this possible? Does anyone know how to do it?

    It completely confounds me why Microsoft included native window transparency without including the ability to mask the transparency to only certain regions while leaving others opaque.

    I guess nobody knows the answer to this one. No matter, I just decided to change the design of my program.
