I would like to develop a transparent activeX control that can float on top of web pages. In other words, you would be able to see through the activeX control to the page content behind it.

I managed to get this to work for a desktop version of the application by following the examlpe at http://www.codeguru.com/vb/gen/vb_graphics/transparency/article.php/c6979/ . Unfotrunately, when I apply the same solution to an activeX control it does not work - my control stays gray and covers the page behind it.

Could anyone point me in the right direction? What sort of thigs need to be accomplished for this to be feasable.
