Hi Peter,

usually the “image” way to make a small png (or gif) and apply it as a bg to the html-item.

But you could try as well the css way.

Add this into the before head of your page:

Draw a HTML iten, click extended and add in the div section the value pair

class (name)
transparent (value)

Set a color and hit cmd-D to produce another div. Give the second one another color using the inspector.

Preview and both divs (having the class name “transparent” applied) will be in that case 50% (0.5) transparent independent of its color set via inspector. Play with the values 1.0 (opaque) - 0.1 or whatever.

Hope this works as expected.

Cheers

Thomas

Hi Peter,

excellent.

Just a quick note for others want to try the CSS method.

This:

Draw a HTML iten, click extended and add in the div section the value pair

class (name)
transparent (value)

should read:

Draw a HTML item and while still selected (or click to select) choose item, extended add in the div section the value pair

class (name)
transparent (value)

Cheers

Much much easier way to do this:

  1. Draw an HTML box, do not set a background color in the first tab of the Inspector.
  2. Click on the second tab, open the “Graphic Effects” segment. Choose the “Background” effect (left-most) and apply your color and opacity there.
  3. There is no step 3.
