windowless labels on VB.NET forms

Can a label control be created that is windowless?

I'm not thinking, but try setting the background of a form to blue or
something, and setting the forms transparency key to blue, or whatever.
This will give the impression that the label is it's own form :)

Hi Peter,

I answered this in your original thread but I'll move it here.

Yes. You would associate the LiteLabel with an underlying surface and it
would draw itself thereon. Several LiteLabels could thus share the same
surface. (Make it a Graphics and it needn't even be visible - do it memory on
a Bitmap!).

Many problems with this and that to be solved, of course, not least being
how to allow the user to manage these at Design-time.
Do you need to set these up visually on the Form or is it possible to do
it in code?
What properties would you need to be adjustable - Size, Text Colour and
what else? Would you need different Fonts or the same one for all? Etc.

Regards,
Fergus

No. The Windows Forms label control is not a windowless control.
