[transparency mystery] ii

 [1/1] from: rebol665::ifrance::com at: 13-Feb-2002 23:48

[As Windows froze while I was in Outlook - I'am sending this message again] Hi reboller, 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 rubbish. 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 ?
