See http://www.dc.ee/Files/Programm.Windows/ - transblt.exe how to create transparent bitmaps. But more easy way is using icons instead bitmaps.
Good luck.

So the only way is to BitBlt or use icons? What a drag!

I switched to icons, but I think now that there is a way to do it with bitmaps. There is a function (macro) called ImageList_AddMasked that seems to do it.
