Adding a trasparent Skype available icon

I can't seem to choose any combination of Skype in order to have "transparent".

Is there a way to set it up so that a person call call you without having to answer to many security questions - such as, you are not accessing skype. etc.

Thanks,
JP

What???? Read you question to yourself and ask yourself do you understand that because I don't. Ok what is is that you want to see and achieve? This statement does not make sense
"I can't seem to choose any combination of Skype in order to have "transparent".

How do you choose a combination of skype? Skype is a program not a combination. Are you wanting to create a transparent button on a webpage that takes the user to skype or opens skype? Is that what you want? And if you are looking for a "TRANSPARENT" button you just want a rectangular window you can place over top of something else and when the user clicks it, it will open skype?

Please give more detailed explanation and read your comments before posting them to vmake sure they make sense to us. Thanks.

I did forget to post the link (sorry) from where I was trying to obtain the code in order to create a transparent button on a web page that allows the user to see if I am available and then call me.  I went to this page (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/tell-a-friend/wizard/) and was not able to the choose transparent option.

I am open to other suggestions.  My goal is to have the transparent icon show my sSkype availability status and allow the user to call me through Skype by clicking on the icon.

Please advise if this is a bit clearer.
Thanks

Well on that wizard page you can only select "transparent" if you select the "small" option for the button. If you select the "large" option, the button choice is "white" by default.

Anyway, so you want to create a button to go on your website that let's users know if you are online or not, and if so they click it and "skype" will open and start calling you? Is that right?

Paste this code into your page then change the username to your username. Then when a user clicks on it they will either get a message to install skype of it will call you if they have it installed. This is from the link you provide and the button is set to transparent mode. Don't forget, the line that says
<a href="skype:your_skype_username_here?call"> put your username after the semi-colon : and before the " ? " to set it to your skype account.
