Re: The blend level of a stack...

Well, after a lot of experimenting with the image used for the base shape, with a blendlevel of 0 on the stack, this was about the best I could come up with, lining the text up over the fully opaque parts of the image. Of course, it drifts right out if you go up with the blendlevel on the stack at a...

Re: The blend level of a stack...

The window is recreated from OS routines when decorations are toggled, hence the reinitialization. I found out this morning doing retro-testing on the alpha bug that this was not always the case. In MetaCard 2.5, RunRev 2.2.1, and Revolution 3, changing the window shape does *not* move the window a...

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...
