I’m not able change the alpha value or any value infact of an .egg file after it has been set as a geom of DirectButton.
btn = DirectButton()
test = 'test.egg'
btn['geom'] = test
test.setAlphaScale(0.5) # no effect after geom is set.
I can change the values fine before it’s set as the buttons geom
What happens if you enable transparency using
Also, in your code snippet, you are setting
test.setAlphaScale on a string, which has no such method. I assume the code you used in your application looks different?
Same thing, geom doesn’t udpate. The code in my application is
test = loader.loadModel('test.egg')
prints test.egg to confirm that I am running setAlphaScale on the egg
That’s because it makes a copy of the NodePath you pass in. You could however try passing in
geom_color=(1, 1, 1, 0.5). Otherwise you will have to either set it on the frame itself or access the underlying OnscreenGeom component and set it there.
geom_color gives me the result I was looking for. Thank you
