adding BG to forms.

P: n/a
vb 2003
HI and thanks.
Is it any way to create a template for a form as:
- form bg should use the same image.
- controls (labels,groups and others) should have a "tranparent" property
so it looks nice.
otherwise I have to do it manually every time I create a form.
what about forms that are already created, any tricks to do the same to
them.?.

We did this (in VB6) using code which cycled thru the VB IDE and all its
forms & controls to change properties. You might want to find out how to do
this in .Net.
