I am trying to set the Application tag to transparent. As far as I understand it there is no way to do this. I have tried setting the backgroundAlpha, but this does not work for mx:Application. It seems that there are some settings that allow this if you are developing an AIR app (WindowedApplication). Also if you are designing a web app you can set the wmode in an html tag. I have even tried setting the background image to null or space or to a transparent PNG. I need a way to accomplish this because I am embedding my SWF in a PDF, and thus cannot use the methods mentioned above. Has anyone been able to do this? Workaround?
The wmode stuff works pretty well just embed the html page containing your Flex App,
