Re: The blend level of a stack...

@ Hermann, I appended the additional blends (all under Structural Blends) that elicit the behavior you reported in bug id=19700 , as well as linking a screenshot. The following additional blends also produce this effect, the level is where you reach absolute transparency : 1. blendXor - level 0 2. b...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

I thought, after how poorly I was expressing everything else in this thread, to work up a picture of what I meant for this comment... One thing I still don't understand is this, though. 1. I didn't change the transparency of the image in Lc , I created the rounded rect picture in GIMP and set the tr...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

Yep, just as -hh said, it is a glitch that only works on 'nix, which is a very sad thing imho, as it works so well there :? Having had a long hard think about everything else posted in here (and re-reading the entire thread 3 more times), I did finally break down and use an image on the main stack a...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !! (x 2) Thanks -hh! I'll take a look at it on OSX myself, I'd really be surprised if it didn't work there for some reason, after all, it is just one stack moving another :roll: @ SparkOut -- hmmmm.... Maybe what -hh said before is right after all, It didn't occur to m...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

(1) Possibly you are simply documenting an old bug (some may call it feature) which is on linux only: That is to have a partially transparent stack window. Here another possibility to have transparent parts ("holes") in the stack window using the ink, once again on linux only: https://quality.livec...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

Ok, This is more or less the effect I was shooting for with the original question, you can see (maybe) why windowShape would not have worked for this. https://i.postimg.cc/SKzP2dxh/deepin-screen-recorder-Select-area-20190804114616.gif However, reaching this point brings up more questions that I coul...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

Ok, I think I found a workable solution using a bit of 'fakery' (thanks for that hint -hh!) by using 2 stacks. It goes something like this - 25 - I turn the decorations off on the main stack 25 - the substack has decorations 25 - when the mouseEnter message for the graphic is sent, the substack is m...

The most important thing is that, at the end of the thread, you know what you want ;-) Yes, figuring out how to get to it is a little irritating though :D bogs wrote: What I would like to know is if there is a way to have the stacks blending set to 100 (clear), and have controls that still show up....

Re: The blend level of a stack...

The window is recreated from OS routines when decorations are toggled, hence the reinitialization. Alright, that sounds like what I remember reading (I really need to keep better track of these things when I come across them :? ) and it makes sense. I tried a number of methods of storing the locati...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

Oh, I already know about creating a window shape from a picture, and I already further know that you can say, drop some controls, set the bottom to srcClear, and then drop the decorations and have it show just like the windowShape, for example - https://i.imgur.com/xE4myoU.png What I would like to k...

The blend level of a stack...

I was playing with blendLevel today, and noticed that when you set the stack to a blendLevel, it automatically applies to all the objects in that stack (which I should have probably known).

My question is, is it possible to have a stack blendLevel of say, 100, but set an object to still show?
