[bug] multislider bgcolor?

    Feb 28 2010 | 9:06 pm
    Not sure what this is, but it wasn't what I was expecting... When I set the bgcolor's alpha to 0. and am not in "thin line" or "bar" mode things get a bit weird (see attached patch).
    Can somebody reproduce this or am I doing something silly??

      scroll modes don't support transparency. If you want transparency have a look to the transparency subpatcher lcd's helpfile, it does something similar.

      I noticed this recently too, apparently in any of the scrolling modes the background is always opaque. Kind of too bad, it would be nice to utilize it for a piano-roll kind of display, where there were keys underneath. Don't know if it can/will be changed, maybe it has to be opaque for some reason.
      A hack workaround could use [itable] for the data, constantly shifting your data as you get new values in, but obviously that's more of a pain. Though I couldn't resist trying.... this is kind of fun :)
