Drawing on desktop (Delphi)


**I need a function that draws on desktop, behind the desktop icons.**

Please let me know if you need more than 3 days (before starting the project). I can easily extend the deadline.

## Deliverables

Project description:

I need access to desktop canvas in order to draw a movie/GIF on it. The main requirement is that the painting should be UNDER the desktop icons.

These are the requirements:

* The painting should be under desktop icons

* Should work with modern operating systems (Win XP and up)

* Do not use DirectX (if you want to use DirectX/DirectDraw, please inform me first to approve it)

* Do not use ActiveDesktop

* Flickerless (it is important that the animation/video should plays smoothly)

* The program should not hinder other applications

For bonus:

* The application will not freeze while it draws the animation (please use separate thread to paint instead of using [url removed, login to view])


* Delphi XE source code

* Documentation

* A very small application (and source code) that demonstrates that the function works. To make things easy, we will use a series of BMPs to simulate a GIF :)


Starting point:

Once the bid is accepted I can give you links to some related documentation and a piece of code from which you can stat your work if you want (it is not mandatory to follow this path). I think this code works with Win XP but not with Win 7. I hope it is a good start.

Also, to get an impression of what I want to achieve, take a look at this example (application that draws on desktop): [url removed, login to view]
