Hmm... that is strange I thought it would be transparent by default.

You could always set it to

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  lnklbl.BackColor = this.lnklbl.Parent.BackColor; 
which would set it to it's parent's backcolor, so it would LOOK transparent.

Thanx mr. markmcgookin ,
this code is not work well because the panel contain image as
background in picture box control and all link label display on image by
"BringToFront()" method.what is way to transparent control in this situation.

I don't think you can ever get a truely transparant background ontop of an image in the compact framework.

It would require quite a bit of processing power to do this, as the bounds of the lable object would surely have to mimic the colours of the object below it. Why are you placing a link label on an image. Why not just set an onclick event for the image and have this mimic the behaviour of the link?
