I’m trying to create a “floating” gauge on my desktop with a
transparent background. Using Visual
Studio 2005 I add the gauge to a form and set the backcolor to
Transparent. Since I can’t set the forms
backcolor to Transparent, I set it to a color like Fuchsia and set the forms
TransparencyKey color to match. I also
set the FormBorderStyle to none.
This works but the gauges edges are “jagged” and the Fuchsia
color bleeds through around the control. Is there a way to get the “floating” gauge effect with smooth edges?
