Tansparency in forms and fade effects in PNGs (VB .NET)...

Hi all,
I have a form, which I've set to be transparent (using TransparencyKey). On that form I have a PNG image which has transparent areas and semi-transparent areas (a fade effect). The full transparent parts of the image are fine, but the fade effect is showing with the colour of the TransparencyKey behind it.

Please could someone shed some light on this topic.

Thanks in advance,
Ian

Are you talking about Layered Windows / Transparency Color? If you post some of the code, I could take a look at it.

No code involved at the moment. Just a form with default BackColor, TransparencyKey set to the same colour (making the whole form transparent) and a PictureBox with the PNG.

This screen capture may make things more clear...

I don't have .NET, so I can't help you there. If the TransparencyKey is using Layered Windows, I don't think partial transparency is possible.
