    You see im not speaking englisch. I try write text the simpler, maybe i do mistakes but in the end we somehow understand each others. So vb.net is better then vb6. I like vb2010 but its hard to deal with it to me.

    I wouldn't have used a PNG file in the fisrt place, as it doesn't support transparancy like GIF formats do. This is not a programmatic problem, it is a design problem IMHO. Open the file in a graphics program, make the white transparant, then, use the GIF file that was output, in your program.

    Actually, PNG does support transparency. I use that feature myself all the time. Even more so, while GIF (AFAICT) only supports a one-bit transparency mask or single color index assigned to be transparent, PNG supports a full-blown alpha chanel. (See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...hnical_details)

    This thread apparently is just about what the title says: a problem with the VB6 picture box control. I can't say much about that myself though, since I'm not using VB6. (Just here for the VBA stuff, you know... )

    This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom.

    PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file support tranparency. In this topic first picture is png with tranparency code, you can see behind picture is a backorund picture.
