Anyone shed some light on the below problem?

I have a situation where I have a List UI object filled with menu options, it's all tarted up nice using the excellent Polish GUI and displays fine.

I require that one of my menu options, when selected, initiates a Form UI object that contains some objects for user input.

Using the midp2 Display functions I switch to the form once the List option is chosen and it displays ok.

Here lies the problem, I want to make the background area of the form transparent, so the previous List screen is partially visible behind it.

Thought the image background attribute set to "transparent" would do this, i.e.

.textScreen {
margin-top: 10;
padding: 5;
padding-left: 6;
padding-right: 15;
background-color: transparent;
layout: horizontal-expand | horizontal-center | vertical-center;

Yet when I run it the Form screen's background is filled white entirely, so wiping out previous screen entirely.

Am I misinterpreting this transparent functionality or is it bust?

Any thoughts on alternative solutions welcome also
