[JAVA2D] transparent windows yet?

1 reply [Last post]

I'm in the middle of a project where being able to make a window's
background
translucent/semi-transparent would be a very very cool thing
to have.

Is this possible yet with 1.4? If not, how about 1.5?

Is this feature really that hard to implement?

I'm asking honestly, I don't know what's required in the JVM to make
this happen. But since both OS X and WindowsXP seem to do this all the
time now, I have to assume most of the "hard" code already has been
written in those platform's native libraries.

Hello Rob,

unfortunately, this is not possible with current
jdks (1.4.2 and 1.5).

Thank you,
Dmitri
