Transparent window with frame

  • Hi,

    Every piece of code concerning a transparent window I came across was setting a FramelessWindowHint window flag.

    I would like to have a transparent window WITH a frame. Is it possible ?

    I tried the obvious solution which was to simply set the background-color: transparent style and WA_TranslucentBackground attribute for my main window and its content and I ended up with a black background (if I do set the FramelessWindowHint window flag however, it works).

    Hence my question : should I spend a few hours trying to find a way to have both a transparent window and a frame or is it simply unachievable ?

    I should add that I am only interested in Windows portability.

    Thank you for your help !

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should also add which version of Qt you are using, on which version of Windows.
