How to make a form transparent.
Posted on 2003-03-09
Does anyone know how to make the background of a form transparent?
I have a program that I don't want to have to copy all the info from the main form onto subsequent forms but have several other forms that pop-up for other stuff. It would be nice if I could just make the form transparent so the main form's background shows through. The only other option I could think of myself would be to cut out the section of the main form's BG and set it to the BG of the subsequent forms. If I have to do this, does someone know how to load the picture once and then just use it for each form so it doesn't have to take up memory for each form?
BTW I can't use MDI unless someone knows how to get rid of the title bar and line around the forms.
