Im a 2 week new programmer, and this is my 1st tutorial, so I hope it helps.

1. Create an Image and for Best Results, save as .bmp or .png

2. Select the Forms and on the Properties Tab set a Background Image from the "Project Resource File" option and Browse the Image you made previously.

3. On the Forms Properties Tab, find "Transparency Key" and set it your Pictures Backround Color, in my Case i Selected Magenta

4. Then find on the Forms Properties Tab, "FormBorderStyle" and set it from "Seizable"(Default) to "None"

How people feel about you on the forum. Once you get so much +rep and a certain number of posts you can reach Guru Status.

Uh huh - there's only 3 Gurus at present - chilli5, G_Morgan and myself. Methodz was almost a Guru, but unfortunately he got banned. He's set up a new account (Methodz reborn), but he still can't get back the rep he lost, so he's got a while to go. You could be our next Guru! :)
