Messagebox transparent style

May 31, 2011 at 9:46 AM


I would like to style my messagebox to be fully transparent, except for the "Background" property. So in the end I'm trying to have an image popping up instead of a window, but with the messagebox functionality.

I was able to setup the background image and make most of the messagebox transparent. But I still see white border lines, contours, as if the messagebox is still there and I only made the "fill" transparent. Excuse me for not having the code at hand, but what I essentialy did is changing all the properties listed at the messagebox documentation to be transparent.

I also set the "WindowOpacity" to 0, expecting it to make everything around the "Background" transparent, but it does not get rid of those contour lines.

Is it possible to do what I'm trying, or is that imposible by design?

I figured it out, there were a few hardcoded white values in the source. By changing those to transparent I got exactly what I needed.
