Round GUI

I was just wondering.  Does anyone know if there is some way to make a round Front Panel (or any shape other than rectangle)?  I wanted to make a GUI that was a shape other than rectangle, like Sonique.  Is this even possible in LabVIEW?

Thanks,
Jo-Jo

If you're on a Windows machine you can use the Windows API to do it. See attached for a simple example.

That's great, thanks a lot.  I apparently have a lot of investigation to do in regards to this.  I should be able to create some really cool GUIs with this.

Thanks,

With the proper playing around, you can create some nice stuff.

It's also possible (and simpler) to do this by making a specific color in the window completely transparent, which causes it to allow click-throughs.

 

You can see an example of how to do this here, although that was just quick and dirty code, so it needs some cleaning up. I don't even remember if the color which should be transparent is set up as an input there - http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Darren-s-Weekly-Nugget-04-17-2006/m-p/352929?view=by_date_ascending#...

My original desire to make a funny shaped window ended up evolving into a white paper (with example code), which you can view and download here:

 

https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-9775

 

The example allows the user to select a black and white bitmap, which then clips the window to match the bitmap.
It should contain everything you need.
