I have a bitmap drawing that I would like to load into

Picture Box and have its background transparent.

How can this be done?

Thanks

You have to set the alpha? Gif is the best for this. Try a transparent gif.

I converted the icon file to the gif file format

but no change, the back ground is visible.

I used an icon file (in VS2005). It worked. If I changed the forms color,
the transparent parts of the image also changed.
Do you want the image to float? Is it on a form? I might need more info on
what your are trying.

The icon is to be on a pictureBox.
I am not sure what you mean about floating?
I am also working with vs2005.

Floating means a form that is transparent. As if the image was floating on
your desktop.

I'n not sure, I'm getting transparency with a picturebox. I even used a
background image on the form, and the background image showed through the
alpha of the icon.

Ok, Do you have your backcolor of your picturebox on transparent? It is
under the webtab when you choose the color.
