    PNG image as button background

    Hey,

    I'm trying to use a PNG image (with transparency) as a button background image. I tried using this to accomplish the task, however it just leaves a blank box on the window and only highlights once before disappearing.

    I honestly don't understand why it is so difficult to get this to work, I can easily draw the dialog background (a .png) with the GDI+ in 4 lines of code, I have no clue how to create a button with a png background though.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Same way, with GDI+.

    Hey,

    I actually got that far, but ran into another problem. When I click the button it just draws over it with the clicked state (another png image with transparency) resulting in a messed up image since the old state is still there under the new image. Is there a way to delete the old button drawn by GDI+ before its drawn over?

    Thanks,

    -Matt
