Is it possible to make the App/Screen background transparent?

I'm building an app, and created two tabs. Everything is working fine, except the fact that I would like the screen fill to be transparent. I already changed the screen Fill property for the app to "transparent", as well as every single element in the form, but I still see a white background:

As I said, it works just fine, but I would love to be able to have those two tabs without a white background behind them. Is it possible?

 

Thanks.

That does not appear to be the screen fill causing that. It appears there is another element there. Can you share a little wider screen shot? How did you build the "tabs"?

You can set the background to whatever you like.  If you set the screen background itself to Transparent, then you will get white, as the screen cannot be transparent to the rest of the operating system.

 

I am confused as to what you expect to see.  Are you expecting to see things like your desktop or other apps through your app screen?

It looks like I didn't think this question thoroughly. You are right, regardless of the screen/app background fill, the OS, or the browser in this case will determine the ultimate background color. Thanks, and sorry for wasting your time.
