Transparent TextBox or background image

First off, excuse my English, is an online translation.

Hello. I've been looking for a long time over the Internet how to make a
"textbox" is transparent or having a background image, but I can not find,
just a website that allows a "textbox" is transaprente, but is in C (and not
I have no idea C). The Web is this:

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/edit/T...ntTextBox.aspx

I think that is an interesting feature that microsoft has not ever happened
(or so it seems). Anyway, if someone knows how to convert the C code to
VB.NET since it would be perfect.

Thank you all.

Hello Kulber,

if it's OK to use a RichTextBox rather than a plain TextBox,
then you might want to have a look here:
http://groups.google.com/group/micro...39d84d5267f255

Please note that for transparancy you cannot expect that you really
"look through" an object but only see the background (image) of it's
container. If you put it over a PictureBox for example, you will find
that the PictureBox is not necessarily updated as you need it. I
encountered this problem and put it (and the background image) onto a panel.

Best regards,

Martin

Also asked by that code for VB.NET that no wise convert from C, and gave me
the answer.

Thanks anyway.

This is the answer (is in Spanish):

TEXT IN SPANISH:

Basandome en el link que pones encontre una solucion. Lo probe en VB 2008 y
me parece "bien"

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/edit/a...ndtextbox.aspx

Baja el codigo fuente, es para C# y VB

El codigo fuente es sencillo aunque no se si te sirva ya que ocupas agregar
una referencia a una DLL (que viene incluida en el codigo) y este codigo
para cada TextBox que quieras

Dim TextBox1 As New ZBobb.AlphaBlen dTextBox
TextBox1.BackAl pha = 70
TextBox1.ForeCo lor = System.Drawing. Color.Black
TextBox1.Locati on = New System.Drawing. Point(106, 48)
TextBox1.Name = "TextBox1"
TextBox1.Size = New System.Drawing. Size(150, 20)
TextBox1.Text = "TextBox1"
Controls.Add(Te xtBox1)

No se puede indicar (al menos eso vi en el ejemplo) que funcione sobre un
TextBox ya creado, sino creando uno desde 0 con puro codigo

Espero te sirva

Hi, my problem: I have some tables with transparent backgrounds, which are changed in colours within a JavaScript DOM function to have a roll-over effect. Now, i can't get them back transparent when leaving the mouse out of the rollover-box - background-color: none; seems not to work. Isn't it possible to do this with CSS?

Hi there. I have one question... How can I create a bitmap (programmatically), paint it to a picture box and have a transparent background?

Setting the background color of the bitmap and of the picturebox to color.transparent does not seem to work. Another...

I've been complaing about the VB2005 Help-Information (or rather the lack of it) before, but when I was looking how to set the backstyle of a label control to "Transparent" I found that the VB2005 documentation has reached an all-time low (please note the part about the z-order): MSDN: In Visual Basic 6.0, the BackStyle property of the Label control determines whether the label had a transparent background.
