#A processing.org library to create transparent windows#
With Ghost you can create transparent windows, well not really, Ghost displays an image of your desktop, so it looks like the window is transparent.
There are three different modes available:
Ghost ghost; // transparent fullscreen window ghost = new FullscreenGhost(this) // transparent window at position x:0, y:100, width: 200, height: 300 ghost = new WindowedGhost(this, 0, 100, 200, 300); // transparent window, which sticks to the screen boarder // ("top", "right", "bottom", "left"), third parameter is window width / height ghost = new StickyGhost(this, "top", 100); }
Tested on Windows 8 and Mac OSX 10.7.5 Lion with Processing 2.0b6
