Is "No Background" Possible in StringObject with MUI?

Hi there!

With MUI v3.8, I have been experimenting with background images and superimposing objects on top. I managed to have TextObjects with a "transparent" background: as far as I understand it, actually without background so the image "behind" (declared in the enclosing Window or GroupObject) shows.

But, I haven't managed to have StringObjects with a similar "transparent" background. Without MUIA_Background, the background of my StringObjects is "gray" and same if I use MUIA_Background, MUII_BACKGROUND.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

PS. The code as is now (the background of the StringObject is "gray" on my Workbench v3.1 on Classic Amiga)

Code:
	object->STR_label_directory = StringObject,
		MUIA_Frame, MUIV_Frame_String,
		MUIA_HelpNode, "STR_label_directory",

Just don't give them the Frame tag should do the trick.

Thanks Cylon! But still, the "background" of the line where the cursor appears is still "solid" and (in my settings) gray... I cannot manage to not have a solid background so that the image in the background shows through... Any idea?

(I tried with NewStrings and BetterStrings in the MUI preferences and I cannot get a "transparent" background there either... and by transparent, I mean a background that is not "solid", like I can have with TextObjects.)
