The ''Opacity'' property can be used to control the degree of transparency of a form of control. The lower the opacity percentage the more transparent the form or control. To make a form transparent, select the form and change the ''Opacity'' percentage to 70% (if you select a percentage that is too low the form will be invisible when the application is run). Press '''F5''' to build and run the application. The form will be partially transparent in that you can still see the form and its controls, but you can also see what is on the desktop behind the form.
