Hi. I have the following code in a VB.net version of http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/24005/Resizable-Moveable-Customizable-Borderless-Form
and need to alter things to get a background image with a Transparent color, but
I get the following error: "control does not support background color"

   Public Sub New()
        ' This call is required by the designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        ' Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call.
        FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None


        BackColor = Color.Transparent

        BackgroundImage = My.Resources.BackBlue

        DoubleBuffered = True
        Opacity = 0.9
    End Sub
