I'm developing a windows app using VS2005.
I have the following code under a button that makes a panel (which has textboxes and comboboxes upon it) visible and sets it as transparent, showing the underlying datagridview that it appears on top of:
Panel1.Parent = DGV_webs
Me.Panel1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(175, Me.Panel1.BackColor)
This works well apart from a few things.
The datagridview receives all tabs and enter keystrokes instead of the textboxes and comboboxes on the panel. And, the panel does not show up where it is located at design time. It shifts down the form and the bottom disappears off the bottom of the datagridview. If I position the panel higher then I can get it where I want but surely this isn't correct?
Basically what I am trying to do is give the user a panel with textboxes and comboboxes for them to fill in that will filter the datagridview info underneath it... I want them to be able to see the rows changing through the panel as they type in filter info.
Any suggestions would be great guys... Cheers.
