Transparent Spliter

P: n/a
When you set the VB.NET splitter to the color in which you are specifying as
transparent on the form then it's stops working. Not sure why, you'd think
the program would know where it is even if it's not visible on the screen.
However I'm developing an app with a transparent form so even a 1 pixel
width splitter looks like crap.

Does anyone have a work around for this? Any other components out there
that do support transparencies?

Thanks for any advice,
Justin

Justin,

This sounds as "The Emperor's New Clothes"

Gut in a GUI environment the 'widgets' relay on the fact that you can see
them :)

What is the use of having a splitter that no one knows is there?

I'm assuming the splitter mouse pointer will still show. Most all splitters
I'v seen aren't apperent until you notice the mouse changes.

Thanks!
