Stretch and Transparent Picturebox
Posted on 2007-03-19
I have a public game that’s been out for 3 years now.
I have found that my program is not compatible with Windows Vista because there are 3 OCX files that do not register in vista. (assuming 16 bit versions).
I have managed to find 32 bit replacements for 2/3.
The one I have spent 5 days solid trying to find a replacement for is Transparentpicture.ocx.
The reason I cant find a replacement is because I need it to have 2 special features.
Stretching pictures larger or smaller and Transparent background ability at the same time
I have not been able to find a replacement ActiveX control so far.
I have found some that do either 1 or the other but not both at the same time.
i cannot use the Image control because my app uses Activeskin and image controls dont show up when skinned.
I have managed to find the code to stretch a picturebox control.
So i have to find a way to have a transparent color in a picturebox or find a replacement ActiveX control that does both.
