is this the intended behavior? is it possible to make the windows
really transparent, like in samples/RoundedTransparentWindow?
I do not see why this would not be possible.
I do not know if it is the intended behavior or not as it was a program
that I grabbed from the site mentioned in the readme. I was looking for
a something simple that used CoreAnimation Layers so that I could
implement the LayerManagement and Constrainment bindings in MonoMac. It
also used KVC and KVO which also helped me track down some more problems
Is it possible to achieve this somehow? I searched in the web, but
found that overriding SendEvent() seems the choice to go.
The overriding of SendEvent is the only way I have used to do what you
want. Although have never tried it with MonoMac only obj-c.
