Description (last modified by Jpm)

Transparency with autoit is different on computers based on that computers color settings. To me this seems like a serious flaw because in designing an app you can't take into consideration what colors someone could set which can make your app look very ugly. I saw a post once which suggested an option that allows you to define which color you want an option of instead of setting GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT), with an image you can put GUICtrlSetTransparent(-1, 0xff0000). To me that seems like a great idea and generally makes sense. Also allows someone not to have to fiddle with transparency in an image editor.

In fact transparency is applied to the parent window so GUICtrlSetTransparent will be override by the next one.
The current strategy of choosing the pixel 0,0 of the control for pic seems the not the worst one.
I am closing it
