See Also    Example    Applies To

Returns or sets a value indicating whether a Label control or the background of a Shape control is transparent or opaque.

Syntax

object.BackStyle [= number]

The BackStyle property syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.
number A numeric expression specifying transparency, as described in Settings.

Settings

The settings for number are:

Setting Description
0 Transparent background color and any graphics are visible behind the control.
1 (Default) Opaque the control's BackColor property setting fills the control and obscures any color or graphics behind it.

Remarks

You can use the BackStyle property to create transparent controls when you're using a background color on a Form object or PictureBox control or when you want to place a control over a graphic. Use an opaque control when you want it to stand out.

A control's BackColor property is ignored if BackStyle = 0.
