Property Value

true if the hosted element has a transparent background; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The BackColorTransparent property enables bitmap copying, which enables hosted elements to use transparency over the host container. This is useful when the element is over an image or gradient background.

For performance reasons, the BackColorTransparent property is turned off by default.
