Hi,
I made a RichEdit text which counts down on a progress bar
(so: "layer 1" = progress bar and "layer 2"= RichEdit counter).

Now I want to make my RichEdit Background transparant.
I tried it under properties of my richedit control, but this does nothing....
Any ideas???
Thanks...

Thanks, but for the first one you need the SDK, and the second is only for a groupbox.

Hi, dkloeck,thanks for your help:
I tried this:
/////
HBRUSH CTransparentEdtDlg::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
{      HBRUSH hbr = CDialog::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);
      CBrush m_brush;
      if(pWnd->GetDlgCtrlID()==IDC_RICHEDIT1)
      {      GetBrush();
            pDC->SetBkMode(TRANSPARENT);
            pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(255,0,155));
            pDC->SelectObject(&m_bredtBrush);
            //hbr=(HBRUSH)m_bredtBrush;
      }      
      return hbr;
}
///////
But this does nothing, when I build it after I putted the RichEdit above the progressbar...
