Checkbox BackStyle Transparent

Checkbox BackStyle Transparent

(OP)
I have an ActiveX checkbox on a Word document. I would like for the checkbox's background to be transparent. I have set the BackStyle to transparent, yet when I turn off design mode, it is still showing a background color.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish background transparency?

Thanks!

RE: Checkbox BackStyle Transparent


What is the BackColor set to?

&H00FFFFFF&

Didn't realize that might matter as I didn't see a place to either remove the color or make transparent within BackColor.

RE: Checkbox BackStyle Transparent



Transparent does not mean colorless.  You can have both color and transparency.

So is there a way to make the background completely transparent (colorless)?

RE: Checkbox BackStyle Transparent




Hmmmm???  I am seeing the same thing. It is NOT transparent at all!

Revisiting...

I was able to get the checkbox backstyle transparent. However, when the checkbox is clicked it reverts back to a white backcolor. Is there a way to avoid this? I tried the following, but it's not working as I thought it might.

CODE

Sub CheckBox1_Click()

    If CheckBox1.Value = True Then
        Range("B8").Value = WindowsUserName
    Else
        Range("B8").Value = ""
    End If

CheckBox1.BackStyle = fmBackStyleTransparent
End Sub
