    I'm trying to set a transparent background to a RadLabel and I can't find a way to do so. I have an older project that uses 2010 Q2 controls and the transparent background there works fine.

    My form has a gradient background, so any solid background color of the label will look awful. I'm sure there must be a way to make it work, otherwise the label is not useful in any case that the background is not plain solid.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello Sharon,

    Thank you for writing.

    The RadLabel default value for back color is inherited. To make the back color transparent, all you have to do is to set the BackColor property of the RadLabel to Color.Transparent. 

    I hope this answers your question. If you need further assistance, I would be glad to help.
