A modal dialog that fades the background to gray-scale imitating the XP shutdown screen

, 23 Feb 2006 CDDL
DimmerDialog is a .NET class that shows a modal dialog which grays out the rest of the background, just like the Windows XP Shutdown dialog. This can be used when your application needs to show a very important message box or form that requires immediate user attention.
