I have a textbox that I applied the WS_EX_TRANSPARENT style to, and a bitmap background for my main window. My problem is that whenever I select text it flickers and sends a 'bar' across the screen on whichever line of text I'm selecting. Is there any way around this? Another solution would be to have a textbox that is scrollable, but the text not be selectable. Does anyone know of a way to do this? [Edited by - Sfpiano on August 13, 2007 1:04:03 PM]
