Start new project...expand the examples folder...expand Windows OS Specific....expand Win32 Formshape..and open the form shape project :-) Your solution comes bundled with Real Studio. Simply make the form shape you want and the exterior will become "transparent" :-) Let me know if you need help.

Best Regards,
Matthew A. Combatti
