Hello,
I am a bit new to vb.net. I Want to make a translucent button but I am not able to make it. Can anyone help me please?
Thanks in Advance

Can't be done. What you could do is make a pseudo-button of your own by using a PictureBox. Set the BackColor to Transparent.

It CAN be done. BUT, you must be willing to learn a totally new way of programming. Learn WPF and XAML(Speak out 'zammel')
I tried to use WPF in C#, I gave up after a few months. So I stay with Jim in this: Can't be done.
If you want to google WPF and VB.NET. Example.

Yes, but this is in C#. Don't know if it can be done in VB. Just as C# does not have all the possibilities of VB. Besides I should not follow the track of GDI+ any more. Besides the fact there is smoothingmode and antialiasing, the
pictures drawn with it still tend to be edgy. Helas, only one road: WPF.

That's in terms of language syntax, and the gap is shrinking with each new version. In terms of framework support, anything you can do in C# you can do in VB.NET.

Agreed. Shiny prettiness is WPF's bread and butter. Presentation tricks that are a bear to accomplish in WinForms can often be completed with a one-liner in WPF.
