You can write your own WDEF for the window.  Staz' WDEF Project folder that
came with the FutureBasic examples gives an example WDEF.  It's kind of
tricky, but you can modify the relevant code to give a polygon shape.  You
can even design different variations which draw different window shapes
depending on the varCode that the Toolbox sends you.

WDEF's are actually kind of fun to write, even though it takes a while to
get the hang of them, and you have complete Toolbox interaction.
