Thanks for your question.
The shadow you see on the screenshot is generated by the Desktop Window Manager as of Windows Vista. This shadow appears only when certain styles of the form are present which is not the case with ShapedForm.
we remove the sizing frame, as well as the caption which causes the Operating System to automatically remove this shadow. So, basically we do not support shadows in ShapedForm.
I hope this answers your question.
