Transparent icons

Feb 26, 2013 at 8:50 PM
How does Visual Studio handle transparent icons? What I see from your code and by directly looking at the bitmap resources in the DLL files, there is no transparency in the bitmap data. (BMP doesn't support transparency anyway.) But in the Visual Studio GUI, the borders of the icons are partially transparent, fading against the background. Where is that transparency layer stored?

Problem solved, Microsoft has released their VS 2012 Image Library, so I can get the images from there.
