Can anyone recommend a commercially availble bitmap button control with transparent background?

I am fed up with hobyist's code all over the net where the control loses it's z-order once the form get out of sight, etc.

I need a dependable control to present an ellipse shaped bitmap, and take into account the transparent background around the ellipse.

Thnks for any suggestions

       MFC FeaturePack
    supports CMFCButton, which includes a member variable: m_bTransparent
    Also set:
       myButton.m_nFlatStyle = CMFCButton::BUTTONSTYLE_NOBORDERS
    I have not tried it, but it seems like a possible way to go.
