    Question Unanswered: Transparent Background for a subform?

    Can you make the background of a subform transparent?

    Why you ask?


    I have a form with a tab sheet. You all know the one. At the top, it is R250 G250 B250 and at the bottom it is R240 G240 B240. Which means that if I try and match the colour, I get a very distinctive line which looks crap.

    It would be easier to make the background transparent. But forms don't allow that as far as I know.

    Does anyone have any clues???

    Unfortunately I think you're right. I do not believe form sections themselves can be set to transparant.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Not sure if this will work with tabs, but here is a link to some code that will give you transparent backgrounds on the sub-form. I have used the first set of code and it works beautifully, have not had a chance to try the other code that is supplied.

    Your link takes me to a default page. Any other link you can give to direct me there?
