Alpha Blending

The Tree List Control control gives you control over alpha blending, allowing you to provide control elements (rows, column headers, empty area, etc.) with varying degrees of transparency.

The way to implement alpha blending is to assign a background image to the control via the BackgroundImage property, and then customize the control's appearance, to allow the image to be seen through the control's elements.

The following topics provide more information.
