change window opacity?

Apr 05 2011 | 9:17 pm

i have a program im using and the synths piano rolls are in one full screen sized window and the drum lanes in another full screen sized window.
is there a way to change the opacity of both so that i can see the synths and the drums windows overlapping?

only title-less windows can have transparent patchers:

Or you could put both the patches in bpatchers and overlap them.

cool feature. but i need the actual contents of the window to change opacity too. like buttons, toggles, multisliders, etc.

just send the bgcolor command into the objects…
not sure how to make that work with objects like [sel] [route] or [trigger]…
