     This is an enhancement of the Transparent Analog Clock by Jonathan Rossing. I took his code and made a bunch of changes. It is stay on top, you can move it by clicking anywhere on the clock, it only shows itself in the system tray (not in the task list nor the task bar). And it works like a real clock (the hour hand increments as the minutes do) It also uses a bitmap for the clock face (at this time the bitmap must be changed at desing time). And the code is streamlined. This is a good demo of how to make a transparent form that hides itself from the system and is moveable by clicking anywhere on the form.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
