Glass nugget

By now you know about the MSDN nuggets, of course.

Well, they finally published the one I did on Vista glass so you can watch/download it following the instructions from the link above.

This is a superset to the one I did for channel9. The additional 7 minutes are there to describe the feature and for a couple of slides (that I stripped out from the channel9 version).

Please note that, since Vista RC1, achieving glass through the TransparencyKey does not work anymore for Windows Forms (so ignore those 3 minutes in the video). The other two approaches are fine though :-)

Finally, for an overview of the DWM APIs see Greg Schechter's post.
