How come that I can't get any transparency for buttons ?
Let me explain a bit ...
I was reading the "How to Create Custom Buttons how-to" when I noticed that
all the button images had white background. Furthermore every example in the
how-to uses a white background for the layout. In fact, in one changes the
layout background to blue for example, the result is ugly : rectangular
button with white corner.
Using PaintShop Pro, I started to experiment creating button with
transparent background. I tried .GIF and .PNG in vain. The result was
I then remembered Etienne ALAURENT aqua-skin. Looking around I found very
pretty round cornered button (button_up.png for example). In PaintShop Pro,
these buttons have magenta background. However, when I substitute the
original black backgrounded rebol button, with Etienne ALAURENT button, the
result is still rubbish.
What am I missing ?
Does anyone had any idea to make transparency ?
