Overlayed Text on Video

P: 6
I am attempting to write some simple video playback code. This is easy I am using Microsoft.DirectX.AudioVideoPlayback which works fine.
I want to overlay some text on the video. To do this I need the famed transparent control that everyone sems to struggle with.

I have overiden createparams and now have a transparent textbox/rich text box. If I place this over a picture it works fine, but over a video the text disapears.

Could this be a question of ordering ?

Any ideas welcome !

I think the DirectX does something wierd with its display handles and doesn't like doing layering. I have no evidence of this however.

Can you get a NON-transparent textbox to overlay the video?
