I am almost searching for a few months about a code snippet to change the standard Winforms border, but I found nothing in the net. I want to realize a rounded border in the bottom of a default winform like Windows Copenhagen concept.

Has anyone an idea how I can do it?[^]

I would try the following steps Smile | :) :
- Extending the Non Client Area in Aero[^]
- Setting the Window Region[^]

Thank you Eugen.
I know how to use the Non Client Area and it's working fine. Therefor I use a PanelControl in the bottom of the Winform and place several other Contols on it. But I don´t know how to use the SetWindowRgn for the rounded border like in my screenshot and on the MSDN website I couldn't find any samples.
