How to make label transparent in CSharp

thi
Hi Experts,

I am new to C# moving from VB 6.0.

Basic i want to know how do i make the label transparent with the control
color it currently on.

For example

I have a picturebox control in my form, I set the picture property to
'C:\windows\web \wallpapers\wal l.bmp'. Then i placed a label control onto the
picturebox and i want that label to be transparent with the picturebox
picture, how can i do that.

Is there a way to change the background color of command buttons? I know that I saw some VBA code somewhere that showed how to do this. I think it involved making the button transparent and then creating a box the same size and making it have a color for the background. Although, I can't visualize the logic or how to kick off the 'click' event with this overlay sitution. Ok ... I am rambling. Does anyone have the answer to this one? ...

Hi there. I know I can make a form transparent by setting the transparent color, opacity, etc. Is there a way of making the background of a label and the background of a picturebox transparent also, so that I can place some text on top of an image (seing the image behind the text instead of the gray box of the label) and showing to the user only the image without the background of the picturebox or form, and the text over it? Any Ideas?...

I have drawn on my form a custom background using CreateGraphics as I needed an ellipse looking fill in a rectangle - so the actual background colour of the form is still set to "control" colour. If I use the background transparent setting instead of seeing my drawn on background and it's gradient i see the forms background colour. If the label was on a solid coloured bit of...

I've been complaing about the VB2005 Help-Information (or rather the lack of it) before, but when I was looking how to set the backstyle of a label control to "Transparent" I found that the VB2005 documentation has reached an all-time low (please note the part about the z-order): MSDN: In Visual Basic 6.0, the BackStyle property of the Label control determines whether the label had a transparent background. Setting the BackStyle...

Hi all. I've been working on a small and very simple label design app for a few days now, I've got most of my problems solved, although I'm sure there are some more just around the corner! The current issue is trying to get dynamically created labels to be truly transparent. Setting the color value just doesn't do the job! I may have many labels on the form at any one time, when moving a label over

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
