Hi there,
with the latest NetWorx update (version 6.2.2) there is an interesting new feature listed in the changelog: "Added a new hidden setting to activate transparent graph background."

Do you mind sharing where to find this setting?

Thanks a lot,
Stefan

It is in a separate area called hidden options, dedicated to infrequently used parameters.

To access the hidden options, simply press Ctrl + O in the regular Settings dialog or double-click the empty space between the OK and Cancel buttons in the Settings dialog.

For some reason MS implemented transparent drawing differently on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

It works this way, with a transparent notification area graph on Windows 10:

Looks great on Win 10, but, i like Win 7. And i'm not the only one. wink
Maybe you can create two different deskband.dll? Or something else.
Really, transparent graph in tray important for me. It's just beautiful.

I totally agree with you that Windows 7 is a better system, and that's what we use here too.

Thing is the transparent drawing API works in the notification area on Windows 10, but does nothing on Windows 7. If we find a way that works on Windows 7 as well, we will definitely add it to NetWorx.
