Using FlashPlayerControl you are able to create applications based on transparent flash movies. You can create applications with translucency non-rectangle forms (windows). Use Flash to make applications with modern user interface, make a business logic using Delphi or Builder.

Use TTransparentFlashPlayerControl Component to work with transparency.

  1. Put TTransparentFlashPlayerControl on a form.
  2. Set MakeParentTransparent property to True. That's all!

Please note that form transparency is supported only under Win2k (or higher), 16 / 32 bpp display mode. To check if the transparency is supported use global function IsFormTransparentAvailable:

[ Delphi ]
if Not IsFormTransparentAvailable then begin ShowMessage('Translucency based on Flash is not available'); Application.Terminate; end;
