Transparency and ClipControls
Posted on 1997-06-03
OK here goes:
I have an OCX component (VisualWriter by Visual Components Inc. as it happens) which has a property BackStyle which can be set to transparent. The problem is that the component seems to have been written very much with Visual Basic in mind. When I try to set the BackStyle property to transparent I receive a warning telling me to set the Object's container's ClipControls property. This ClipControls property is presumably a VB property and I assume that it is simply an implementation of some Windows API functionality.
What I need to know is how to replecate this VB ClipControls property within Delphi, such that I can have my transparent component.
