Transparent gif

P: n/a
Need some help Please.

When I use the transparant gif ( HiLite.gif ) in a PictureBox Control, it
covers everything that is behind the rectangle, It is not
transparant at all. It needs to show the name of the county in Texas that
the user is trying to locate.

It worked just fine in VB6 using the Image Control, but NOT in VB ,Net where
there is no Image Control.

Why doesn't the transparent gif work in VB .Net using the Picture Control.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, Jim

Is the background color set to Transparent?

Can you attach your gif so we can try it out?

IIRC, being 'transparent' just means it will show the background color
of the picture box, it will not show what is behind the picturebox.

Thanks,
