[MBS] More window transparency

So, adding a 'Self.' solved the MakeTransparentMBS issue.
Wonderful! Thanks for the speedy response.

Now, is there a way to make just the window transparent, while
leaving any controls on the window opaque? Or am I asking for the
ability to manage window and control transparency independently? I
suppose that would be the end result, but for now I just want the
window background to fade away leaving the controls 'floating in
space' so to speak.

You can check the "Custom Window with RB window" example project.

Basicly you draw in the paint event the new background of the window
leaving the rest transparent. You need to do a very careful mask of your
controls to have this look nice.

Of course I'm available for contract work to just do this for you.
