I am trying to build a control using Visual Studio C#. I have created a Windows Form Control Library (.NET Framework) and simply dropped a button. Here I have set the background color as transparent and created a dll.
Now if I use this dll into another c# forms application project the background is transparent as I need.
And, If I use this same dll in LabVIEW by using .net container I am not getting a transparent background. Instead, it is showing some default grey color.
Even I am setting the background color to transparent by setting its properties It is accepting all other colors except transparent.
Please suggest if I am still missing something to update. I am attaching the visual studio code and labview vi.
Perhaps you need to activate first the transparency of the the front panel.
If I remember correctly, you'll never have a transparent .NET container because it actually a separate window that sits in front of all LV windows. My technical explanation may be incomplete, but I think that's basically correct...
