While using masks allows very nice visual enhancements, there is one limitation.
Applying a mask blocks interaction with the object that is being masked.
Of course it's normal and logical behavior - the mask is on top of the object.
But perhaps somebody has found a workaround.
Just a question...
What is the mask exactly , I'm not too familiar with them. I do know that if you have an object over another , you can set mouseEnabledWhereTransparent="true" to allow mouse clicks through.
Thank you for the suggestion.
I'll give it a try.
