Graphics Bug

Post by netdzynr » Fri May 23, 2014 10:50 am

On OS X 7dp4, the "spread" property of InnerShadow and InnerGlow graphic effects operates in the wrong direction -- increasing the spread value causes the the glow effect to move outward, away from the center of the graphic, instead of moving inward toward the center.

The "size" setting of both effects was fixed a ways back and works correctly.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for this. I've reported it as a bug here:

http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=12483

It looks like in the rush to fix other bugs we introduced this. Should be an easy fix and sorted today.

Warm regards,

Ben

Just for curiosity,
How could I change the color of innerGlow and outerglow?

I have not found a way to do change this, so it's always black.

Hi Capellan,

The properties of the various graphics effects are stored as arrays. If you wish to change the color of the "outer glow" of a button your would have to use something like the following-

Code: Select all

set the outerGlow[color] of button "myButton" to blue
Kind Regards,

Hi Capellan,
I got hit by this one as well.
Not sure if it's the same problem as you are having but just clicking the tick box is not enough (odd UI) you have to highlight the line (click the words) to get the color selection to come up.

Hi I need to know how you are removing grafic effect.
For example I am checking statement and if it is right I am setting outer glow, and want to remove this effect in else statement. How?

Hmmm. the engine is less forgiving with every new release, so we better use the official syntax:

Code: Select all

set the outerGlow["color"] of button "myButton" to blue
