Im trying to create a Visual Basic .net app that runs on windows CE.
I have it working on Windows CE but the problem I am having is that you can't have Transparent controls.
I have a background image (PictureBox1) and I have a label and I want to set the background of the label to Transparent. but when the software runs it comes up with the gray (form background) as the label background.
I have read a few forums and it tells me to use this:
This works fine if you run it on Windows XP but as soon as you run it on Windows CE it don't work.
Label1.Parent = PictureBox1
Label1.BackColor = Color.Transparent
Does anyone know how set the label backcolor to Transparent? (I also what to be able to change the text at anytime so printing the text on the form or to the image isn't really an option.)
Hope someone can help..
