Hi. Is the EditControl capable of rendering text without a solid or gradient background?

I tried setting both BackColor to Color.Transparent and BackgroundColor to a Color.Transparent BrushInfo, and even tried some things in a derived class, but without success.

I just want to put some nice formatting on some readonly text, so for now I can use one of the transparent RichTextBox hacks, eg http://www.codeproject.com/KB/edit/TransparentTextBox.aspx.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

Yes. It is possible to rendering the text without a solid or gradient background.
Could you please set the Trasparent to Backcolor and Background to None in Design view.

Please refer the screen shot.

Please let me know if any concern.
