Images through active x controls on a form (500)

Hey all,

Anyone know if there is a way to display a dialog in Excel with a background image.  That is to say, can the active x controls be set to transparent?? I'm on Excel 2000.  I know labels have a transparency property, but I don't think the others do.

TIA!

Scott

I can't remember for sure about 2000 but in 2002 the controls have a BackStyle property that you can set to Transparent.

Some of the controls in 2000 do, like Option Buttons.  But it doesn't help to set the transparency property of an option button if the Frame (GroupBox) around it doesn't have a BackStyle property.

That's true - you have to live without frame controls but that's not such a hardship. You can use a label control to simulate the frame around the option buttons (just send it behind the option buttons) and use the GroupName property of the option buttons to group them together.

Sounds like a good workaround.  I'll have to give it a try when I have time to play around.

Thanks Rory!
