Hi guys,

I working on a chess program and Iam now inserting the images for each stone to the form, the problem Iam facing is that I want the Image only to occupy the area of its perimeter without the white (or otherwise) background that accompanies the square area which includes the image. In short, I want the image background to be transparent, this is not possible in bmp jpeg gif, but it is possible in PNG. But the problem is that I only know how to load bmp jpeg and gif in to the Borland Builder 5.
Any help on how to load a PNG image on the form is appreciated, or any other method to do what I need.

A brief search of google gave me this. Alternatively, though nobody wants to do this because it requires "work", is download the PNG specification from www.wotsit.org and program your own handling routines.
