Make font background transparent

I do the following to pick a font.

Each letter this creates is displayed in a small solid colored rectangle.

Instead, I'd like the background image to show around the letters

Is there an easy change that would make the area around the letters
transparent.

Thanks

SavedTextColor= SetTextColor(hd cPaint, TextColor);

SavedBkColor=Se tBkColor(hdcPai nt,HighlightCol or);

memset(&lfLogic alFont, 0, sizeof(LOGFONT) );

lstrcpy(lfLogic alFont.lfFaceNa me, "Courier New");

lfLogicalFont.l fHeight=long(Zo omFactor*cyClie nt/30);

hFont=CreateFon tIndirect(&lfLo gicalFont);

hFontOld = SelectFont(hdcP aint, hFont);

Have a look at the SetBkMode API - TRANSPARENT.

Hi all, to avoid a nervous breakdown I finally decided to seek help :D I have a table defined with plain color background and in some cells I show pictures to frame my site.

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 can't make this script work properly. I've gone as far as I can with it and the rest is out of my ability. I can do some html editing but I'm lost in the Java world. The script at the bottom of the html page controls the form fields that are required. It doesn't function like it's supposed to and I can leave all the fields blank and it still submits the form. Also I can't get it to transfer the file in the upload section. The file name...

Hi, guys. I'm developing a web application for Sales Department people in my company. I used my 1024X768 resolution and "Medium" IE text size to test my Layout and it worked fine. However, some people in Sales Department use different settings like "800X600", "Larger" IE text size or even "Large font" in Appearance tab in Display Property. Those different settings would mess up my layout. What I want to do is to set font size of labels,...
