Transparent Images
« on: August 07, 2013, 11:24:49 am »
With all the new dialog stuff, is there a way to display an image with a transparent background in the Picture box control (or some other way)? I saw the code in the tech support database, but just wanted to check before trying that route.

Sorry WIL Dialogs do not currently support the use of transparent images. The code I think you are referring to in the tech database (http://techsupt.winbatch.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe?techsupt/tsleft.web+WinBatch/Dialog~Editor/Dialog~Editor~version~6.X/Samples+Transparent~Images~in~Dialogs.txt) takes a non-transparent image and attempts to turn it into a transparent background image.

There might be a way using DllCall and possible a SendMessage to tell the control that it contains a transparent image, however I have no idea what would be required to accomplish this.
