Hello Experts,

Sorry to disturb you. I am having Forms with background image on the canvas. now my problem is, how can i set a text item to be transparent so that the background image can be seen as clear as when there is no text item on it. Please help me to solve this problem ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

We discussed it several days ago; it appears that you can't do that (or, at least, we don't know the way).

Propapbly when you run the form you can check if there is any value returned in that particular field. If not then make in Invisible.

SET_ITEM_PROPERTY ('TEXT_FIELD',VISIBLE ,PROPERTY_FALSE);

Hello Mr. Mudabbir

I'm afraid u did not understand my point. I want to show the content of the item but it must be Transparent (see through).

You are advising to make it invisible, how come it would be. then totally that will disappear from the Form

Hope I've clarified my point.

As Littlefoot said above, you can't.

Hi,
Hope you have solved your problem..

I have achieved the same using display item's prompt text,

like,

SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('DISPLAY_ITEM', PROMPT_TEXT, 'WELCOME TO THE APP');
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('DISPLAY_ITEM', WIDTH, 0);
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('DISPLAY_ITEM', HEIGHT, 0);


If you make width and height as 0, the item will not be visible on the canvas, but you can able to see its prompt.. which is having transparency..

First of all Thank you very much for posting a reply to my long back message.

Coming to the point, I am afraid you didn't get my idea. I want to make only the "Text-item" transparent, not hiding it. Its label any how will be transparent only.

By using your suggestion, its hiding the "Text-item" and showing its label, instead of making the "Text-item" itself transparent.

No, I didn't solve this problem, but for the time being left it, as the Senior Member of our orafaq community, Littlefoot advised its not possible.

Thanks a lot again!
