Description jsc 2007-11-02 10:44:58 UTC
It can be useful to set a transparent background of controls, e.g. for Label
controls. It is currently not possible to set such a property over the toollkit.
Comment 1 carsten.driesner 2007-11-06 14:14:11 UTC
cd: Implemented. There is a new property called "ImageURL" which is used to set
a background image for a dialog.
Comment 2 carsten.driesner 2007-11-06 14:16:33 UTC
cd: Transparency is now supported for non-compound controls.
Comment 3 carsten.driesner 2007-11-08 12:45:17 UTC
cd: This is a defect. Transparency already works for compound controls. Only
non-compound controls, like fixed text, don't behave correctly. From my point of
view the changes done to support transparency two years ago were not correct.

tkr-> jsk: please verify
Comment 5 joerg.skottke 2007-11-19 14:35:06 UTC
Apparently not all controls are transparent. Submitted issue 83760 as a follow
up with same target but removing UI relevance (this is a fix, really).
