ASP.NET Transparent Page

Posted on 2007-12-05

Is there any way to make a htm(l) page transparent?

I'm using a Telerik RadSplitter and Panes and I need the html page to be transparent.

The default skin has a snippet making the splitter background transparent...but pane two needs something to "hold" data and if I use a "sbout:blank" or actual htm file it shows as white in pane 2

Code attached...
<radspl:RadSplitter ID="RadSplitter1" runat="server" Width="680px" Height="300px" Skin="Default" >

 <radspl:RadPane ID="RadPane1" runat="server" Width="250px" >

  <br />

  <a href="affiliatesPane.aspx?rec=cge" target="RadPane2" >Link 1</a><br />

  <a href="affiliatesPane.aspx? rec=mir" target="RadPane2" >Link 2</a><br />

  <a href="affiliatesPane.aspx? rec=bor" target="RadPane2" >Link 3</a><br />         


<radspl:RadSplitBar ID="RadSplitBar1" runat="server" />

<radspl:RadPane ID="RadPane2" runat="server" ContentUrl="holder.htm">

What does this holder.htm contain? I mean if it contains things like <html><head> and stuff like that, it has it's own background. It would be advisable to strip everything like that and just use for example the same HTML output as you have in RadPane1 to see whether that also gives you a white background. I think it will not!

>>but pane two needs something to "hold" data

with the telerik splitter, the pane doesn't have to be another page, you can put content directly into it...for example:
<radspl:RadPane ID="RadPane2" runat="server">



<!--any html or asp:control you want -->

Sorry Max,
I had to re-read your post a few times just now to realize that's what you meant.
Also, I use the telerik tools extensively and can confirm that it does work by placing content directly into it.
