Transparent controls in .NET are big hassle. I expected them to address this
in VS2005.... but of course did DID NOT.... the most they did was have the
label controls and others respect the parent form's background image. But
you still can't see other controls underneath the so-called transparent
control AFAIK.

This is extremely frustrating (when you run into it) considering this was
sooooooooo EASY to do on VB3,4,5,6 and before (where labels where
"windowless" lightweight controls). We also still don't have other
lightweight controls (like "Image," and also line, circle, square... which
while not mission-critical were extremely handy to have when needed).

I have seen some solutions in www.codeproject.com
