Help! How can I import a windows metafile or a bitmap file from Autocad R14
with a transparent background. Autocad can convert my drawings to these
formats but I can't figure out how to make the drawing backgroud transparent
when I import the drawing to the LabView front panel.

It depends on what version of LV and what OS you are using.
LV supports bitmaps without any transparent colors, and
enhanced metafiles, but there were lots of trouble supporting
plain metafiles. If you have a relatively recent version of
LV and a Win32 platform, I'm pretty sure that EMF or enhanced
metafiles will have little problem being imported into LV
through the clipboard or the Import Picture command.

Earlier versions of LV and Win31 versions import different
formats of bi
tmaps.
