HwndSource.UsesPerPixelOpacity Property

Gets a value that declares whether the per-pixel opacity of the source window content is respected.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Interop
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
public bool UsesPerPixelOpacity { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the system uses per-pixel opacity; otherwise, false.

When you enable per-pixel opacity, the system no longer draws the non-client area. This is because the intended purpose of UsesPerPixelOpacity is to show non-rectangular top-level UI that works in interoperation scenarios. Therefore, showing the rectangular non-client area defeats that purpose.
