How can I change the transparency level of an image to 50 % without using the alphablend property( it doesn't work under win98 and my code must work under win98 too)

Thanks,
roniks

if you decide to use directX you can use it in delphi by downloading the DelphiX component

The example code is in C but the functions will have the same name since it is the windows API
