Transparent Form

Code following to make your form become transparently.First of all, make a last module insert code following:

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function GetWindowLong Lib "user32" Alias "GetWindowLongA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function SetWindowLong Lib "user32" Alias "SetWindowLongA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nIndex As Long, ByVal dwNewLong As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function SetLayeredWindowAttributes Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal crKey As Long, ByVal bAlpha As Byte, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

Private Const GWL_EXSTYLE = (-20)
Private Const WS_EX_LAYERED = &H80000
Private Const LWA_ALPHA = &H2

Public Function MakeTransparent(ByVal hwnd As Long, Perc As Integer) As Long
Dim Msg As Long
On Error Resume Next
If Perc < 0 Or Perc > 255 Then
MakeTransparent = 1
Msg = GetWindowLong(hwnd, GWL_EXSTYLE)
SetWindowLong hwnd, GWL_EXSTYLE, Msg
SetLayeredWindowAttributes hwnd, 0, Perc, LWA_ALPHA
MakeTransparent = 0
End If
If Err Then
MakeTransparent = 2
