i was wondering. does anyone know how the effects for this program are done? this program is a music disk and when you minimize,maximize or close the program it has a cool effect before it shows the window.

the program can be found here. http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=5684

Well, you can do the fade in out and the other fades with the AnimateWindow API, you can probably do the rest with AlphaBlending, I think that bitRake had an alpha window example on the board somewhere, just set the window to transparent and draw the rectangle opaque while rotating it.
