As is, you can't. MFC uses RichEdit 1.0, which doesn't pay attention to WS_EX_TRANSPARENT and paints its own background in response to WM_PAINT instead of using WM_ERASEBKGND.

If you want, you can force MFC to use RichEdit 2.0 or RichEdit 3.0. Then, the WS_EX_TRANSPARENT style will work--or, you can override WM_ERASEBKGND.

The SDK has tons of documentation on the updated rich edit control window classes.
