    Question HELP on UpdateLayeredWindow

    Hi!
    I try to create a layered window with some common controls on it, like a button or an edit box.
    The problem is that i use UpdateLayeredWindow to give a bitmap with alpha transparency to my main window. And this is everything I see. My child controls are not painted.
    I understand that if I do my own controls and make them paint themselfs in the bitmap given to the main layered window it wold be ok.

    But how can I use some common controls ("BUTTON", "EDIT", etc) or even other more complex like a html view or other activx control?
    Is there a way to force them to paint themselfs in a given DC? Or maybe to make them ignore the fact that their parent is a layered window?

    I hope I don't need to make my own edit controls and stuff?

    Please help me with a solution or someting!
    Thanks!
