Let me say, great job on the class, it's really cool. I have one question though, I have a UI that is much like the DevStudio UI (CDockWnd on the left and CView on the right.) When I use the infobar, it only displays accross the CView class and stops at the CDockWnd. Is there any way to have it display above the CDockWnd as well?
How can I display a transparent bitmap image on the CInfoBar? Bitmaps with dark gray backgrounds like fine on most computers, but some have different color schemes and so the bitmap's background color doesn't match the infobar's color.
I like this control a lot and have played with the demo project successfully (VC6).
However, when I use the control in my application, the text always appears with a white background. I can set the text colour to, say, purple and the background to dark grey. Both these changes take effect, but the purple text has a white rectangluar boarder.
I would like the purple text to simply appear on the dark grey background.
