The Curse of the Custom props

As LiveCode is Object-based one can assign Custom Properties to Controls: however kids find this difficult to understand.

This stack is a variation on the extremely corny old Pelmanism game that leverages custom properties: each of the “fruit cards” has a custom property assigned to it called (possibly rather unimaginatively) ‘FRUIT’ that is used to identify what is on the fruit card’s “face” for matching.

This is the first time I have experimented with blendLevel in a serious way (to "hide" the fruit cards).

Well thats a coincidence, I was just experimenting with blendLevel myself to get different glass effects,

Obviously blendlevel has been much neglected and now its time has come,
with Thee and Me as the "Prophets of blendLevel."

Here's a photograph of the 2 of us, but as both our blendLevels are set at 100% we are invisible. :D
