is there a way I can make a DirectGui (like DirectScrolledList) into a glass like transperent window?
sure. you can use transparent textures on it, or use a custom-made geometry to replace the frame alltogether. the introduction page on DirectGUI in the manual should contain the information neccessary to manipulate the visuals.
Or you can try to make the alpha-blending.
That’s 2 blurried alpha which make the glass effect, then you can easily add “lines” to finish it.
how would i do that?
Currently no idea
Don’t have time
self.myFrame = DirectFrame(frameColor=(1,1,1,1) , frameSize=(-.5,.5,-.5,.5 ) ) self.myFrame["frameTexture"] = "yourtexture.png"
you can also make the “window” semi-transparent by changing the
yourtexture.png should be a power-of-2 image which can contain transparency information,too.
you might need to do enable transparency on the whole thing using
