Hello Sergey

The problem is noticed on a computer running WinXP SP3.
I had no Office service pack. I tried:
Office SP1, SP2, SP3 : still not working

On another WinXP SP2 + Office SP2 and SP3 : OK
On another WinXp SP3 + Office (base) and SP3 : OK

I don't see the cause.

Just for your information:

AdxButton has not the same behavior.

If I use a .Net button in an advanced control in the toolbar, transparency is OK.

But using button as an advanced control doesn't give the same display result (not a common toolbar button skin) even if transparency is ok.

Hi Tanguy.

Actually Add-in Express Toolbar Controls (.NET controls) don't support transparency.
Please send us a sample project. We will test it.
