Transparent, Click-Through Forms -

This an interesting article by Dave Kreskowiak at while I was searching for a solution for making topmost form that stays on the desktop even if user click's on show desktop button. I was searching for a solution that would allow placing windows on desktop just like gadgets in Windows 7. There was no easy solution, but this article showed some hope and gave me the nearest solution to what I am looking for.

It is easy to make a topmost form in .NET using WinForms because there is a handy Form property called TopMost. Once set to True it makes the form top most. It stays on top of other windows and even stays on it's place even if show desktop button is clicked.

What I am looking for is something similar. But this form must live on the desktop and not minimize when show desktop button is pressed. Still looking for some simple and elegant solution for this :)
