Graident Panels and Transparent controls question

I am using the Wizard Control with the pages set to use gradient colors. I put labels on these pages with the background set to transparent, and the control show up as 'blockey' i.e. it is not really transparent but the background is a shade of the gradient background. Is there anyway around this? Thanks. Tim

Hi Tim, We have tested for this issue here using the above settings and the labels looked fine. Could you please elaborate on what you mean by 'blockey'? I would appreciate if you could send us a screenshot of what you see. Also please let us know the version of Essential Tools and VS.NET that you are using so that we could further investigate this matter. Thanks for your cooperation.

Hi Tim, Thanks for the sample and the screenshots. I did observe the 'blockey' behavior of the labels in the sample. However when I tested for the same issue in our WizardControlPage, I could not observe this behavior. The label BackColor was transparent. Please refer to the screenshot attached. I could also observe an interesting behavior of the GroupBox control here. The labels within the GroupBox appear 'blockey', and the labels outside look fine when gradient colors are used. I have modified your sample application to illustrate this behavior and attached it here. We believe that this could be a bug in the .NET's GroupBox control. So there is a possibility that you might experience this problem if your WizardControlPage contains a GroupBox. Please let me know if you need any additional information.
