How To: Make a label background color the same as its gradient form?

Eric

I created a gradient form and want the background of the labels to take on
the same color pattern as the parent form. Is this easily possible?

Thanks

Hi,

Set the labels background color to transparent.

Public Class Form1

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Label1.BackColor = Color.Transparent
End Sub


Private Sub Form1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles Me.Paint
Dim gb As New Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush(Me.ClientRectangle,
Color.Blue, Color.White, Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode.BackwardDiagonal)
e.Graphics.FillRectangle(gb, Me.ClientRectangle)
End Sub
End Class

Ken
