And here is source code, info and turorials on how to use HUD windows when programming a Mac application:

"Sean Patrick O’Brien, a fairly new Cocoa developer has recently released an iLife Controls framework. This allows you to create HUD Windows and controls such as buttons, sliders, popup menus etc. and also a smooth metal type window (again with controls such as buttons and frames)."

HMBlkAppKit is a framework which provides transparent black panels for Cocoa applications. This is a sub project of the Shiira project.
