Hi. I'm using VB.NET in Visual Studio 2005. I'm using a small tiled JPG as a background on my forms and PNG graphics as buttons so I can have transparency. The forms like this load super slow. You see the form load, then see all the pieces like text boxes and buttons get put into place. Is there a way to fix this? I have a hard time believing this is too much for such a modern system to handle. Thanks.
