Re: [Sc-devel] Transparent backgrounds in Views

it's possible to
implement transparent background of the views?


Lower alpha values

For example to allow for 2 or more multisliderviews to be on top
of each other but the top one would have transparent background.

There is one problem at the moment:

Ordering of layers is different in cocoa versus swing.

Under cocoa the first layer stays visually on top while the latest is active.
Somewhat counter-intuitive.

Under swing visually it's the same, but the first created layer is active.

Actually, from my P.O.V. , the _latest_ built view could be on top _and_ be active.

One could then programmatically decide which one is active, and
takes mouseevents.

A.T.M. one has to build the views again in a different order for this
(functions are convenient -- just switching focus on existing views wouldn't work here). It is just a little more complicated with the different behaviours in SwingOSC and Cocoa.
