I need to find a TEdit replacement that can have a transparent background. Transparency must be available when the control has the focus as well as when it doesn't. It also must allow font.color to be selectable.
(I came across a TEdit-derived component that was transparent when it *didn't* have the focus, but looked like a normal TEdit when edited...and worse, it would not allow the text colour to be changed)
Ideally, I'd like to find a component with source code so I can understand why it works (and why my attempts haven't!).
