Hello,

I am new to Silverlight and trying to figure out how to layout multiple images and how does the transparent are work. The requirement I have is to layer multiple images. The top image has some transparent area and I would expect to see the other image from this transparent area. It is displaying white area instead. I used Canvas, inserted images, and set z-index. I used .PNG images.

I am not sure if it is possible with Silverlight. Can you please give me recommendation?

Are these 24-bit PNGs (with alpha) or 8-bit? Silverlight doesn't support 8-bit very well (officially, it may not support them at all) and you don't get any transparency. Also, do the <Canvas> objects have a background color set to them?

If possible, it may help if you post your code/images here.

It was 8-bit image. I changed it to 24-bit and it worked. Thanks for you help.
