What is a "form in WPF"? WPF does not have forms, if I'm not much mistaken. Do you mean a window with true round shape? This is not a problem at all... --SA

Please see my comment to the question. Is that what you need?
 
If so, one of the way to do it is to assign some instance of System.Windows.Media.Geometry of non-rectangular shape to the property System.Windows.Window.VisualClip:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.window.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.media.visual.visualclip.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.media.geometry.aspx[^].
 
This method is the cleanest one: not only a window looks non-rectangular visually (like it would look with transparency), but is also transparent to mouse events, for example: you click mouse in the corner; and the window of the application beneath is activated — this is something you really need.
 
It's also good to use WindowStyle="None"; to avoid showing non-client areas of the window.
 
Another way is related to Background, AllowsTransparency, and WindowStyle properties:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms748948.aspx[^] (read: "Non-Rectangular Window Style"),
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa358516%28v=vs.85%29.aspx[^].
 
Good luck,
—SA

Good link, a 5. I also answered, suggesting two different ways, and explained some important detail -- please see. --SA

Actually, after a better look: this article suggests not the best solution -- the one based on transparency. Much better solution is based on VisualClip; again, please see my answer. --SA
