Transperancy key not working properly

CalanitCalanit Posts: 4Member
Hi All,

I am having a problem with creating a tranperent background color for my form.
I used the transperency key with the same color as the background color of my form, but there is a known microsoft bug on this issue.
When working with color depth greater the 24bit -> it won't work all the time.
I have a windows XP with 32bit that does not support the transperancy. When changing it to 16bit - works. On another XP, it works fine with 32bit.
Microsoft published a known bug and workaround that does not seem to work for me:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822495

Found another post that I found, which says that he found a solution, missing some explanation:
http://www.megasolutions.net/cSharp/Windows-forms-with-Transparent-Backgrounds-53797.aspx

Did someone experienced this issue as well or can make out the solution from the second post ?

Thanks in advance
Calanit
