I have set a background image. I would like my labels (CLabel) to be
transparent so the background image shows through under the CLabel.

Currently, the CLabel is bounded by a grey box. Anyone know how to do
this, or if it is even possible?

Thank you,
Ty

Sorry but transparency is not possible.

See:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=74458

You could draw the text on the background yourself using GC.drawString
