transparent gradient usercontrol

I'm trying to get a menu button as in
but within windows forms as a user control instead of SilverLight 2
(patient record -> menu button on the top left)

It is like a rounded button, and when clicked a set of buttons move around that button, with a gradient background to indicate the control is on top of the others. I want such background effect within a panel of mine
but a gradient from black to transparent just won't work within the usercontrol

After several hours of searching I came across a few threads as

but none of these has a working solution

anyone has a suggestion on how to pull off the transparency?
