I am trying to understand how Flex implements transparent
I placed several component onto a Panel (i.e. Text, image and
a button). When I change the Alpha property of the Panel via the
slider in the property dialog, I see the background of the panel
slowly disappear BUT I also see my image and button slowly
disappear. What gives?
Yes. Thanks. This seemed to solve my problem. I was able to
place buttons and images on the panel and have the panel
transparent, but not the images or buttons transparent.
One thing though, I needed to set the headerHeight of the
panel to 0 in order to completely make the panel invisible. Not
setting the headerHeight to 0 caused a small white line to appear
(probably the top border of the panel).
