    Transparent sub-app background

    Not sure if this is doable in exe runtime either, but is it possible to somehow set sub-app background transparent in swf?

    So that if I make a circle in the sub app and then display that in the main app, there would not be a white/black/whatever colored area outside the circle, but it would be transparent i.e. showing background of the parent application.

    Re: Transparent sub-app background

    Ok, that's what I was expecting to hear, unfortunately...

    I guess this limitation is due to some fundamental structure of MMF2 and hence can't be fixed easily? Or would it be fixable?

    Here's what I did - make your sub app in a much smaller window so that when it pops up, you can still see most of the background frame.

    Here's what I'd do - make your circle appear in the main app, and your rectangular sub-app on top of it.

    Re: Transparent sub-app background

    Thanks for the ideas, guys, though I'm afraid that those won't quite fix the problem for me.

    Hopefully MMF3 will support transparent sub-app backgrounds..

    Re: Transparent sub-app background

    It seems to my misinformed brain that I once saw a work around for this problem and I am not sure if I placed it on my website. It may be in the archives here on the CT website.

    Re: Transparent sub-app background

    I seem to remember someone getting past it by setting some vars in the html file.

    <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> in the object tag
    wmode="transparent" in the embed tag

    Re: Transparent sub-app background

    Interesting...

    Tried it, but no luck. Added those parameters to the default html generated by MMF, but the result is still the same.

    Re: Transparent sub-app background

    It might be specific to the runtime. Try some generic html embed code with those vars and see if you have any better luck.
