DBPICSHOW how to send to back?

Postby kidjake28 » October 18th, 2013, 4:46 pm

I'm trying to place other components (i.e. label) on top of a dbpicshow component but it always seem to stay on top.

Is there any way of being able to place other components on top of the dbpicshow?

Sorry but PicShow and DBPicShow control do not accept child controls.

As a workaround, you can use a StaticText control, and put it in the form on top of the PicShow/DBPicShow control. Of course, you can't have transparency for the StaticControl. If you want transparency, manually set the Parent property of the StaticText to the PicShow/DBPicShow control. In this case, when a transition is running, you may see some flickers on the StaticText.

However, I do suggest to use OnAfterDrawFrame event to write your text directly on the Screen bitmsap.
