I googled for some information on the BorderStyle property of a CEForm but ended up with nothing. The autocomplete doesn't even tell me that there is a BorderStyle property. How am I supposed to know what methods and properties the Form holds and their values. The CE docs are incomplete.

Code:
f1 = createForm();
f1.Color = 0x2C2C2C
f1.BorderStyle = bsNone


I got to know about BorderStyle and bsNone after I saw the Visual Studio style Form Designer that appeared on clicking Table->Create Form.

autocomplete only works on existing objects
as you're typing your code, that form won't have been created yet. You must first run your code for autocomplete to start working

as for the specific styles, that's what the formdesigner is for, or the lazarus documentation

Yeah it seems to be working right now.

I have another question. I'm trying to write a simple radar hack.
Is it possible to make one that uses an Image in a Form? Like, can I make it stay on top even if I'm focused on the game?

I'm stuck with the form designing part here. Never really used CE for making forms.

only if you can run your game in windowed mode (so not fullscreen exclusive)

set formStyle to 'fsSystemStayOnTop'

otherwise you'll have to resort to d3d injection using createD3DHook() and then create sprites and draw it like that

Is there any documentation related to D3D?

just the stuff in celua.txt and perhaps some tutorials on the forum ( https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aforum.cheatengine.org+"createD3DHook" )
