I'd like to draw an icon to the screen ,and have it invisible until the user moves their mouse over it. Once they do, it will gradually fade into view. Any ideas?

this code is able to fade in/out ,maybe it is better to fit your case,

<HTML>
      <HEAD><TITLE></TITLE></HEAD>
<BODY text=#000000 bgColor=#ffffff>
<IMG id=tuxie style="FILTER: alpha(opacity=0)" src="../images/E-Logo.jpg" onmouseover="setTimeout('fadein()',100)"
onmouseout="setTimeout('fadeout()',100)">
<SCRIPT>
value=0;
var t1=null;
var t2=null;

function fadein(){
      if (value<100) value+=5;

      document.getElementById("tuxie").filters[0].opacity=value;
      if (t2!=null) clearTimeout(t2);
      t1=setTimeout('fadein()',100);
}
function fadeout(){
      if (value>0) value-=5;

      document.getElementById("tuxie").filters[0].opacity=value;
      if (t1!=null) clearTimeout(t1);
      t2=setTimeout('fadeout()',100)
}
</SCRIPT>
</BODY></HTML>

if you need to use it using C#
Start a timer on Mouse over function and use the opacity from 0 to max

it needs to be C# ..no HTML or anything ..but there is no opacity option for images or anything. Opacity only exists on forms.

Actually the way you do it is to set the (??) Z-alpha part of the image to transparent.  I'm not a graphics guy, I just rememeber wanting to prorgram something like this a while back and looked into it.

In the end I would up embedding the picture into a control and then faded the control.  You *can* do an image directly, but the methods I found were more work than I was willing to do at the time.
