    Default Transparent screen

    Hello. I'd like to make screen with transparent background (for submenu). I can make transparent frame for this screen. And when I open it in editor it is shown with transparent background (see attached image). But in the runtime it has background that is writen in Screen -> Properties -> Display -> Background color. I can't find any option "Transparent" there. Thanks in advance.

    Idee Re: Transparent screen

    A possible workaround would be to just make the frame of the screen exactly the same size like the content you want to display.

    Default AW: Transparent screen

    good hint. A frame does not necessarily have to be rectangular. It may have any shape you like. So, if you want the background to be completely transparent, this might be an option.
    However, if you plan to use semi-transparent graphical objects (e.g. shadows) then this will not help
