Hello!

i have a windows form application which i have many controls such textboxes buttons and more.
that i need is to draw or add a control on top of all the form.but i need that control to be transparent so the user can see the textboxes and labels behind him but of course he can't perform any action because this control overlap all the form controls.

Thank you for your help

You can just set the ReadOnly property of the textBox to true and the user won't be able to edit it's contents, it's alot less work and more logical.
