backstyle issues

Post by badrepent » 08 Jul 2013, 14:32

Good evening to all, first a lot thanks a lot to the author for all the controls.
I have one request because I'm finding some issues on setting "BackStyle" property of control WindowedLabel to "Transparent".
On my dev machine the WindowLabel does not render transparent but with a gray color.
This problem seems to be present also in the other controls.

Best regards,
Luca

I fixed it replacing with a WindowLessLabel and now it works as expected.

Hi,

Controls that are real windows, cannot support real transparency. It's simply a limitation of the window manager of Windows.
But you've already found the best solution anyway.
