    How to make a "transparent" User Control Background.

    I am fooling around with windows forms in visual C# 2008 and made a User Control Library project for a forms project to use. I want to have the main form to have a background image, while the User Control have a transparent background so that the image shows through. I tried applying the same image but it just nests it inside of the User control, making weird visual problems. Thanks for the help in advance.

    I found it, it was in the web template rather then the colors in the "BackgroundColor" property.
