Transparancy and Picshow

Postby Krekorie » March 15th, 2004, 10:15 pm

I understand that the Picshow canvas cannot be transparant as stated in the readme, but I also cannot put transparant forms on top of picshow.

I would like to have a (transparant) image continuesly on top. Anybody any ideas?

Hope there is help out there!

The TImage control is a non-windowed control and TPicShow is a Windowed control, so you cannot put a TImage instance over a TPicShow instance.

However, you can use a transparent panel and put the TImage control on it, and then put the panel over the TPicShow control. If you search the net, you will find some transparent controls.

Thanks Kambiz for your response.

I have done that (transparant panel) and that works fine. The only problem is that only bitmap can be used in such an environment. I would like to have a transparant logo on screen like e.g. CNN. High resolution makes the logo look awfull.
I know this is not a Picshow issue, so I will have to try my luck elswhere.

Thanks for your help
