C++ / Win32 / non-transparent control in a transparent window

I am trying ( so far in vain ) to display a normal looking ( non-transparent ) control in a transparent window. I am attempting this in C++, on Vista ( argh ), and having no luck at all. Our transparent window has been accomplished with the infamous "DwmExtendFrameIntoClientArea()" call, which of course implies that "composition" is enabled.

If someone can tell me how to simply render an icon or bitmap so that it is not see-through, I would really appreciate it. Once I know how to do that I can handle the custom control business. I've done this many times before, but never with something as freaky and unwieldy as Vista.

Thanks in advance for any help!

The experts on this site are more than happy to help you with your problems but they cannot do your assignment/program for you. Attempt the assignment/program yourself first and post questions regarding any difficulties you have or about a particular function of the code that you don't know how to achieve.

Please read the Posting Guidelines and particularly the Coursework Posting Guidlines.

Then when you are ready post a new question in this thread.
