Transparent Winform Control

I searched high and low (maybe I have not searched enough) but I cannot find a good solution for creating a control that can have transparent background. So I did some experiments, incorporated some of the ideas I happen to stumble on the net and at last I was able to create a user control that can have a transparent background. Cool! I updated my Code Project article to incorporate the transparency support.

So is the form actually transparent or just the controls?

I actually made the form transparent once,,,forget how I did it.

i tried the sample, it's only the control. you'll notice it when you placed it over another control
