Hi! does anybody know how to make a RichTextBox Transparent? so that a picture behind it will be visible?? I know one way with WS_EX_TRANSPARENT... but if you do it that way the scrollbars are screwed up... or how to paint a picture in a RichTextBox?? tried it also with API > first got the HDC and the used BitBlt but didn't work... isn't there a way to do this???

    :

    Private Const WS_EX_LAYERED = &H80000
    Private Const GWL_EXSTYLE = -20
    Private Declare Function SetWindowLong Lib "User32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long) As Long
    Private Declare Function SetLayeredWindowAttributes Lib "User32" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal color As Long, ByVal X As Byte, ByVal alpha As Long) As Boolean
    SetWindowLong frmTestRichEdit.hWnd, GWL_EXSTYLE, WS_EX_LAYERED
    SetLayeredWindowAttributes frmTestRichEdit.hWnd, &HC0E0FF, 255, 1
