MegaDave1 Posted March 13, 2007 Report Share Posted March 13, 2007 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?
