The borderless window type has no borders rendered by Intuition. Such a window will have no visual delineation from the rest of the display. Be aware that a Borderless window which does not cover the entire display may cause visual confusion for the user. When using a borderless window that does not cover the entire display, the application should provide some form of graphics to replace the borders provided by Intuition. In general, none of the system gadgets or the window title should be specified for a borderless window, as they may cause at least part of the border to be rendered. A typical application of a borderless window is to simulate graphics drawn directly into the screen, while remaining compatible with windows and menus. In this case, the application will often create a full sized, borderless, backdrop window. Use the WFLG_BORDERLESS flag or the WA_Borderless tag to get this window type.
