MIME type of the file's content.

Transparent Color (O)(H)

A setting that provides 1-bit transparency support for logos, toolbars, buttons, and similar bitmap object definitions.

The color you select or enter in the Transparent Color property as an RGB triple indicates the color for which Clear is substituted. You can enter it as a triplet of integers, or when you click the Transparent Color button during a bitmap import, a color selection dialog box opens.

This is useful especially for toolbar buttons and applet command buttons, where the user may have a custom background color setting. When the button appears on the user's background, you may want it to take on the background color from the application.

Width (S)

The width (in pixels) of the bitmap.
