i am trying to mask an icon image (which i can do) and then under that image will be a label (on usercontrol) but when i mask and set it transparent it hide the label caption (label.backstyle = transparent)
i want to mask the picture so you do not see the usercontrol background on my form1 but also would like to see whats in my usercontrol.label1.caption is that possible?
UserControl.PaintPicture LoadPicture("Icon.ico"), 240, 0, 495, 495
UserControl.BackColor = &HFFFFC0
UserControl.MaskColor = &HFFFFC0
UserControl.MaskPicture = UserControl.Image
UserControl.BackStyle = 0
i put the label's backstyle to opaque and i see it now but it has a backcolor which is not transparent... i want it to be transparent but not the text in it
