In our project exists a base class that imitates a picture button control allowing to have text beside an icon without overlapping. This control is a standard userobject with a picture control and a statictext control on it. To simulate hover-state and pressed-state effects of a button there is now an editmask control in behind which has this behavior.
Our requirement is to be able to set the statictext´s background color to transparent.
There seems to either a lack of documentation or a lack of functionality in themes. 
We don´t know how but need to set the background-color to transparent.

*Reproduce Steps:

We like the shortly introduced themes and implemented it in one of our applications.
