Well, this lowers the background frame but I want to keep it visible
under the popup.

I just need a window without the titlebar as my main window (think of
it as a kiosk application). No titlebar is mandatory :-(
I place controls on it and I open popup dialog windows.
If there is a better way to do it, I would be happy to know it.
Thanks again.
