    Hi Guino,any chance you could change RR to support transparent displays in Phoco??

    What i mean by this is display phone list and Manual number and write sms without an RGB background color ( currently you have to select foreground and background and can't position these windows over effects )

    Sorry if i'm missing some thing and this is already possable,i can't find any skin thats done this.

    Thanks in advance.

      I believe this is a limitation of VB controls.

        Well in that case is there anyway to use a custom label in rr ( auto-it script and passing back and forth )didn't you do that for something??

              Happy to help, but I haven’t been following your threads but I have noticed that you have been posting lots I presume all around the same problem.

              I will PM you my email, so you can give me a good description of what your are after.

                I do not understand the meaning of this thread. The Phone list CAN be transparent just like the playlist. There's a limitation of the Text entry field not being transparent -- it's way too much code to make it transparent.

                    Would any 1 like to demo how this is done,either i'm going crazy or (dare i say it)1 of us is wrong.

                    Here is the line of code for the PB entry's:

                    /, P, x, y, w, h, File Color R;RGB, G, B, Directory Color R;RGB, G, B, Selected Color R;RGB, G, B, Font Color R;RGB, G, B, TRS, Font;FONT, Font Name
                    P01,29,156,350,87,0,0,0,000,000,000,119,132,122,0, 0,0,TRUE,32,"Nokian"

                    HOW can it be transparent if it asks for an RGB??

                      ALL lists in RR are transparent and ALL ignore the backcolor parameter.

                          Guino,Would it would be any easier to code for a background image for text entry box's (instead of,or in addition to the RGB color?? so i could just specify an image.
                          Then i could copy the image area the text box covers and achieve a transparent effect.

                            The problem is that TEXT field inputs in Windows GDI are very limited and do not offer transparency. I'd need a ton of UNSTABLE code just to make it transparent. The only way to make it transparent would be to make it a LABEL, which means you'd loose the ability to type directly to it with a keyboard AND you would not have a cursor AND you'd not be able to copy/paste to/from it.

                              yup, Windows text field inputs don't support transparency nor background images.

                              PITA for me when writting apps, too. Sometimes I have to simulate it by having the user type in another textbox and updating the content on a label.
