hello friends,   here my house-maded to create a "dimmed" effect on your forms... it is not advisable to do this without an adult around ....  😂    Form Main   Form Second -> where the effect will be showed Form Third in fact, you dont need the any TImage or anyother component here just use a COLOR like "clGray" in your Form3.Color  you see?     NOTE: of course, you can use MSWindows API for this effect... but I dont have time for test now... sorry!!!   enjoy yourself   hug
