TransparencyKey for MDI child

Hello all;

I have a form with the Background color and TransparencyKey set to the same
value. When I run this as a Windows App, everything works as it should.
However, if I change this project's output to DLL and try to host the same
form within an MDI container, the transparency does not work.

Is this a known issue? How can I get transparency to work in MDI child
forms? Should not that I'm using .NET 1.1 & VS2003

Thanks,

Derrick

PS: this should be easy to recreate, if not I can send code

hey there..
i'm having the same problem, and so far i managed to find out from msdn, tha
this is a known issue, and that the opacity property doesn't work on mdi
apps, because it's working on topMost windows only.
if you have any luck, i'll be happy to hear about it...

Hileni.
