    Transparency thing

    Hello,

    Simple question, is it possible to work with transparency of solid colors using Windows GUI only or do I need at least OpenGL for this?

    Yes, OGL is best for that kind of thing (unless you feel up DirectX, but I recommend GL).
    However, GDI does work with transparency too, look at BitBlt's SRC_PAINT and SRC_AND options.
