I can see now that this panel beneath the MenuBar is the Application layer itself.
Does anyone know how to make the Application layer transparent. I've tried all the obvious things like alpha="0", and tried setting with the various background styles directly in the mx:Application line, but I can't find any single thing or combination of things that will make the Application layer transparent.
Can anyone help please?
Just got back to this and of course I can see now that this gray panel is the stage.
The stage class says that alpha is preset and cannot be changed.
I there really no way at all to make the stage transparent?
Found this which looks like it should work, but doesn't seem to work for me.
Does anyone know if in principle this ought to work with a swf created by Flex?
If I set
<mx:Application alpha = "0" ...
as well as setting wmode to transparent in the wrapper, the stage becomes transparent !!
But now I have the problem that it also makes the ApplicationControlBar transparent even though its alpha is 1.
There seems to be a complex interaction between the alpha settings of the various display objects and I can't work out the logic of it.
Can anyone enlighten me??
