If I have a bitmap background, is there a way to make my button transparent? As in, the background image will be able to be see through from  the button.

I only know the way to set the button control to a certain colour.

not sure you can make a button transparent, but you could add the OnMouseDown() or OnMouseUp() event to the app and check if the mouse was clicked in a certain region, then call the appropriate function from there.
