  3. p:SetHeight(100)
  4. p:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", 100, -100)
  5. p.Texture = p:CreateTexture()
  6. p.Texture:SetAllPoints()
  7. p.Texture:SetColorTexture(1, 0, 0)
UIParent is the frame that hides when you Alt-Z. Using that as the parent of your top level frame(s) will hide all your frames also.
Thank you very much, I ended up doing this.

Although I didn't call SetAllPoints. What does it do? It seems to work fine without that call.
