    As far as i remember, there is no such property in VB6, anubhava.

    Uditha, heya. I believe it's possible to use BitBlt and SetBkColor, both functions from GDI32, to manipulate the form background and generate transparent forms. unfortunately i've no samples atm to show you - google it, i'm sure you'll find something about transparency in VB.

     Good luck!
