TransparentBackground Property [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]
|MsoTriState can be one of these MsoTriState constants.|
|msoTrue The parts of the picture that are the color defined as the transparent color appear transparent.|
If you want to be able to see through the transparent parts of the picture all the way to the objects behind the picture, you must set the Visible property of the picture's FillFormat object to False. If your picture has a transparent color and the Visible property of the picture's FillFormat object is set to True, the picture's fill will be visible through the transparent color, but objects behind the picture will be obscured.
This example sets the color that has the RGB value returned by the function RGB(0, 24, 240) as the transparent color for shape one on
myDocument. For the example to work, shape one must be a bitmap.
blueScreen = RGB(0, 0, 255) Set myDocument = Worksheets(1) With myDocument.Shapes(1) With .PictureFormat .TransparentBackground = True .TransparencyColor = blueScreen End With .Fill.Visible = False End With
