This article describes how to make an AutoPlay Media Studio 4.0 application that does not have a window border.


Sometimes you want to make an AutoPlay application that doesn't have a window border or title bar. To accomplish this:
  • Load your AutoPlay Media Studio 4.0 project.
  • Select Project | Settings from the menu.
  • On the General tab, uncheck the Title bar and Border options.
Here are a few pointers to remember when creating an application without borders:
  • Make sure that you use a background image, color or pattern that will standout against the user's desktop. You may want to build a "border" into your background image.
  • Note that the user can still move your application around the screen by left-clicking their mouse on a non-object part of the background and moving the mouse.
  • Make sure that you put an exit button on your application so that the user can close it down since there will not be a title bar with an X on it.
