[SOLVED]: Transparent dialog box in carbon
« on: February 16, 2010, 09:37:27 pm »
Is there an efficient way to make a dialog box transparent in the carbon widget set?

function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;

could you give a sample of the "transparent dialog box"?

in SVN LAzarus version each Form has AlphaBlend value. You can use it, since some LCL dialogs ARE forms.

Great, it works in Lazarus 0.9.30. Thanks for the hint!
