Shaped Windows in WPF

In previous versions of Microsoft .Net Framework, creating shaped windows was a time-consuming process that involved Win API calls.Not anymore – one of the modern  aspects of WPF is that you can make  non-rectangular windows in simple way.Creating shaped forms works in the following manner.First, you create an image, which, when we are finished, will act as your window.  Second, you change a XAML to make this image become the form.

  • Create a transparent image file that will be used to set the desired shape of the window.


  • Create a Windows Application(WPF) project and add the image control to it.Remember to make the window transparent as shown in code below
<Window x:Class="WindowsApplication1.Window1"
    Title="WindowsApplication1" Height="300" Width="300"
    <Image  Name="image1" />


  • Add code that recreates the functionality that the title bar provided, such as moving the window and closing it.
using System;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;
namespace WindowsApplication1
/// <summary>
/// Interaction logic for Window1.xaml
/// </summary>
public partial class Window1 : System.Windows.Window
    public Window1()
        image1.Source = new BitmapImage(
            new Uri(@"C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\Untitled.png"));
    protected override void OnMouseLeftButtonDown(MouseButtonEventArgs e)
    protected override void OnMouseRightButtonDown(MouseButtonEventArgs e)

CS2-C# Code Search

CS2 is capable of indexing source code files (at the moment only C# code can be parsed) and searching among them with various parameters, like class, property and method names, as well as full-text queries.

The main user interface for interacting with the search engine is an ASP.NET website built for version 2.0 of the .NET framework .
