Hi  letchev,

This is not a solution, but... I was working with TBXToolbar (www.g32.org) for a while. There are a number of controls including edit, combo etc. The good thing for you that there are Themes that you can write yourself/customize howto paint each control at repaint event. So, basically, if you provide a 'blended backgroung' or if you do not paint certain areas, then you will get blended/transparent control. The only thing you have to tweak/rewrite is YouCustomTheme.pas file (there are a lot of examples in a forum). Now hard part: typical Theme weights approx. 100 KB!

ragards,
