transparent labels, link labels?

Is there no way to make a label or link label transparent in vb.net?

This is a real pain on about screens with nice graphics where you want your
text backgroup to be transparent.

I can drawstring most of it--shouldn't have to.

But how to do the linklabel I don't know--other than using the control.

Ideas? solutions?

Hi,

Set BackColor property to Label and Link Label Controls
to get transparent color.

Me.lblTest.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent
Me.LinkLabel1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent

Amal

well, is this only possible through code?

Not in the IDE?

I see no way to do it there.

Thanks I will try this.

This doesn't work...makes the background control gray.....

Does it work for you?

Thanks,
