On a project I’m working on, I need to have semi-transparent containers to hold controls over top of screen-filling bright and colorful background. While I’m not 100% satisfied with it, I think it will suffice for the time being.
I was originally going for an effect similar to the window borders in Windows 7 where the background image is blurred when viewed through the glass. I couldn’t find an easy way to do that effect in Flex 4. If you know of a way, please comment below.
