How make a transparent window in C++ ?
« on: December 21, 2013, 02:07:26 pm »
Hi !

I want to do a transparent window, in first I tried do window without border and titlebar well: sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode( 320, 240 ), " ", 0") after this I did okno.clear(sf::Color::Color(0,0,0,0)) but it didn't work out, simply black screen, do you have any ideas ? Bartek

This is not possible, you'll need OS specific functions to make your window transparent.

SFML does not have such an option. If you want a transparent window, you'll need to do it yourself or search for the few similar topics on the forum. ;)
