I'm Making a Tansparent Form in VB6 and i want to add Shockwave Flash to
it which has Transparent BackGround too..
Now here is the Deal..if i make the flash transparent on the transparent
form it shows the background of the flash movie Gray..if i don't make the
form Transparent than is fine..
Can someone help/tell me how can i do both transparent without having that
gray background in Shockwave flash!!!
Here is the example: http://members.nbci.com/jafang217/

I'd usually be one of the last to say you can't but in this case I think
it's just not worth the hassle... About the only way I can think of making
it work is blit each frame to a DIB based on a timer or something, convert
it to a window region by tracing out the grey then setting that window
region back to the window every frame. I don't even know if this is
possible but I don't know any other way of doing it.
This is assuming that the background changes every frame, if it's static
then simply create the region once and your set.
Another work-around would be if the flash animation isn't that complex and
could be duplicated using the API/DirectX drawing functions. If so then you
can draw directly onto the DIB then do the tracing off that, it's still a
lot of work though.
Hope this helps, and good luck
