    Can you add alpha to masks yet in flash?

      Its somthing I have hoped would be implemented into flash at some point. Any one know if its avaialble yet?

       

      Basically I would like to draw a box with a fill gradient with one end of the gradient set to 0 alpha then set this box as a mask layer. if its 0 alpha then the mask shouldnt be visible in that part of the gradient.

       

      This would come in handy if for example you have a gradient background or complex background(bitmap ect) and you had a text box over the top that you require to fade into the background.

       

      Or does anyone no of a work around for this problem?

       

      Thanks
