Hello All,

Well today I noticed the tree I was working on always draws the bitmaps or 
Icons from my RES file with a white background.  That is fine for those who set 
clWindow color to white in Windows, however it looks odd with other colors.   I 
spent some time looking through calmira source to see if it had a way to 
replace the background color of a bitmap then noticed calmira does the same 
thing in explorer.  So I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to 
replace all the White colors in a bitmap once loaded? Or if there was a way I 
could set an invisible color in my resource file for the bitmaps?

Any help would be appreciated.  If it can not be done, well I suppose it is not 
a major issue, but would be nice :)
