Forms :: Make A Label Control Transparent Over A Panel Control?

Jul 9, 2009

I'm trying to make a label control transparent over a Panel control.However by setting the background colour of the label to Transparent, it actually sees right through to the form itself, not the panel as intended.

As an example we use a panel with a background as white, we make the label transparent, however it gets the form�s colour as blue.However, we are using a custom panel control and need the label to be transparent over the panel and not see the forms background.

Create Custom Transparent Panel Control In VB?

Dec 27, 2008

I'm trying to create a simple transparent PANEL control. I want to create a custom control based on the existing Panel Control with a property added called "transparent" which can be set to true or false. If it's set to true it's transparent(not invisible). So if I place it over some controls in a form say a button or text box... they are visible but disabled.

How To Make Transparent User Control

Oct 17, 2011

I did some research on how to make transparent User Control, The suggested code was like this:
Private Sub New()
' This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
' Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call.
Me.SetStyle(ControlStyles.SupportsTransparentBackColor, True)
Me.BackColor = Color.Transparent
End Sub

When I build the project, there is no errors. But, When I try to load my user control using the "Choose ToolBox Items" dialog, it gives me the following error message:
"There is no components in [dll path] that can be placed on the toolbox."

I have code for make the usercontrol transparent:

Dim cp As CreateParams = MyBase.CreateParams
cp.ExStyle = cp.ExStyle Or &H20
[Code] ......
These code shows the usercontrol transparent. But when the control moves I see that these control needs time to be transparent or drawing an image. Why so many time(maybe 2 seconds)? And why I can't use directions keys on keydown event? (The arrow keys are ignored).

Dock A Control Inside A Panel At Runtime On Windows Forms?

Jul 27, 2009

I am designing a simple user interface using winforms. In the designer I have a panel on the form and would like to add a datagridview control into the panel at runtime and set the dock property of the datagridview to 'Fill' so that it fills the panel.

I am struggling to do this and following code is not working out for me:

Dim MyDataGridview as New DataGridView()
MyDataGridView.Dock = DockStyle.Fill

I don't get an error but the datagridview isn't visible. It gets added 'behind' the panel and so I tried using .SendToBack() and .BringToFront() methods thinking that the panel was hiding the datagridview but this doesn't seem to work either. At any rate, it seems like the datagridview is being added to the form but just not docked within the panel

Panel On A Main Form Containing A PictureBox Control On Top Of A TableLayout Control

Mar 15, 2010

I've got a Panel on a main Form containing a PictureBox control on Top of a TableLayout control. Both the child controls have their docking properties set to Top. The Picture control has  sizemode set to Zoom.

What I'm finding is that the picture doesn't size properly when I start the app. There is a border at the top and bottom in the PictureBox control. It's only when I resize the overall form that it's correct.

So at the moment I've got this ugly bit of startup code, just to fix the problem Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized

What am I missing?

Make A Transparent Label?

Jun 23, 2009

I searched the forums and most of the topics involving this seem to be for Compact Framework. I need a transparent text label which shows an object directly beneath it. In this case, a rectangle. (Visual Studio 2010) I noticed that when I set the label background to transparent it shows the form bg instead of anything between the label and the form. How can I work around this without setting my form background to an image? If I were to make a custom control for it, how would that be achieved?

Label1.Parent = PictureBox1
Label1.BackColor = Color.Transparent
But then the label just disappears, and no text is displayed.

I have a form with a webbrowser control on it, and I load up a local file in it with some code for a rotating banner (so I can support my app with advertising).The problem I'm having is, it is for example, a banner ad in the small banner sized control, when the user click's it, it loads the new page within the same control, which is way too small.I'd like for any click in the control to load up the link in IE itself, outside of my app. Putting target=_blank so far hasn't helped. Below is the code that I am loading up in my control.

wierd thing is that when i run the app, the controls are placed properly, but design time is totally f&*ked up.I know this one isn't me. is it the tab control? should i just do toggle buttons at the top and show/hide my own panels? this is just too freaky to deal with. is there an easy work around for this?

Make Assembly FULLY Trusted - Use The Web Browser Control In User Control

Dec 19, 2009

I am trying to use the Web Browser control in my vb .net user control. I am using VS 2008. Finally, I will be calling my assembly (.dll) from a web page. I wanted to display the usercontrol with the web browser control inside this web page. The problem is I cannot proceed since the Web browser control cannot be called from a partially trusted assembly. Using VS 2008 I have created a strong name for my class, also added the <Assembly: AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers()> to the AssemblyInfo. But still the web browser control cannot be seen in my web page. Do you how I can make my assembly fully trusted so that it can access web browser control? If you have used web browser control, can you confirm if this step is really required?!

Transparent Control's Background

Dec 16, 2010

I have been looking in a lot web site and forums trying to find the way to make my picturebox background transparent or catch whatever I drew on top of a transparent panel, let's explain it.
Case 1-) I trying to make an app, where the user can load onto the winform a word document(I have part this ready), then I put on top of the control where the doc. is loaded a transparent panel(this part is ready too) and the user can sing (on top the panel) then I need to get the user's draw(sing) and print it in the document.

Every time that I try to do it always I get everything that is within the panel area, then I just want the user's sing.

case 2-) I tried to use a picturebox then it works perfect, I can get just the user's sing and print it back in the document, but the problem is, I can't put a picturebox on top of the control where the doc. is loaded because then I can't see the doc.

If anybody wants to see the code to make the panel transparent, or catch whatever you draw on top the pictureBox.

Make The Controls Stack And Fill Up The Available Space Left By A Control If The Control Is Hidden Or Removed From The UltraGridBagLayoutPanel?

Sep 8, 2011

I am wondering if anyone has any idea how to make the controls stack and fill up the available space left by a control if the control is hidden or removed from the UltraGridBagLayoutPanel.


[Textbox 1]
[Textbox 2]
[Textbox 3]
[Textbox 4]
[Textbox 5]

If I hide [Textbox 3] as of now, it will disperse the space left equally and pad the remaining text boxes with the space. However, I would like it to do this...

[Textbox 1]
[Textbox 2]
[Textbox 4]
[Textbox 5]

Where all the text boxes will move up and [Textbox 4] will completely consume the space left by [Textbox 3].

I have been using vb6 for a while, I am following a tutorial by MS to develop a basic application and a simple task cannot be completed for whatever reasons! The tutorial asks to drag the label object from the toolbox and drop in the tab control container. Then, go to the label size property and adjust the size to some different dimansion. Basic stuff, right? It won't let me do it! After I enter the new dimensions (which by the way are not large or very small), the label size (both width and height) resets back to its original dimensions! I have the sp1 installed.

Transparent Control Shows Up As Black

Aug 6, 2009

Im working on in Basically I�m trying to create a nice looking control that draws several PNG images (stars in this example) that light up as you hover the cursor over them. This side of things is working perfectly (see picture 1).


The problem is trying to make it work using a transparent background for the control. I can make the control transparent by setting the controls back color and using Me.Setstyle to enable transparency support, but every time the image refreshes to show any lit stars it repaints over the stars again � making the shaded areas darker each time. This results in a horrible mess (see picture 2).


Next I tried to clear the background each time a repaint occurs so that the stars are drawn on a blank canvas each time to stop this problem. The only way I know how to do this is to use graphics.clear(Color.Transparent) before my code to paint the star images. But this does not work as the control shows a black background instead of a transparent one (see picture 3)!


away the background to leave me with a transparent canvas to paint images onto? And is anyone smart enough to come up with a solution to this irritating issue?

Transparent Ruler / Bar Type Control

Nov 14, 2011

I am looking for a VB control that operates as a more or less transparent or semi-transparent ruler or bar that can be scrolled up and down the form over an invoice or letter, so that the user can see what is under the ruler/bar and thus stop scrolling when he reaches a certain point.

To give a bit more detail of what I am looking for - such a bar is used when someone is setting the focus on a line of a long list of items so that they know where they are all the time. Most people would use a ruler on a paper list to keep track of how far they have progressed down the list. It would be nice though to have the "ruler" or bar as semi-transparent so that the user can see under where he is at on the list or form.
