I want to know, how to put a border on a window (such as Kaspersky Sandbox) have? Does anyone know how to get this effect?

I can draw and show window in XP. But Vista and Win7 have the Aero effect.
So, how can I show the same effects when I use Windows 7?

Thank you very much.

Try setting your form border style to none and use a container that has a border you can manipulate e.g. panel. Dock the container to fill the window 'borderless' window.

Add your controls including a close, min and max button and code them appropriately.

You should have your effect if understood you correctly.

Dear Juma,
Thank you for your suggestion. But I would like to put the border to other windows (I do not own this window).
For example, Kaspersky put a program into their sandbox. If the program is starting, the sandbox will show a green border around the frame window.
Is it possible for Windows 7 or vista with Aero effect?

Thank you very much.
