Does anyone know of a way to create a Transparent Option Button in Visual Basic 5?   I've got a rather nice backdrop for the data entry form and it looks great apart from the areas where the option buttons appear, as these have a rather noticeable grey background - I suspect some API calls may be required - anyone????

You can do it by altering the setting of the Style property and then useing the Picture, DownPicture and Disabled Picture properties.

However, to insert a "transparent" picture to display as your option, you will need something like PhotoShop or PaintShop pro that could create transparent backgrounds.
