I'm trying to make a countdown vi as attached. I want the whole thing to be transparent with only the number visible. However making the FP transparent means every controls/indicator will be transparent. So how to leave certain control/indicator unaffected? Or are there better ways to do it?
Can you attach it for lv 8.0?
No, sorry, I haven't 8.2 on my PC for downgrade.
Here is the screenshot:
The main idea is to make front panel completely white, and then using white as color key for transparency.
Here's the VI in 8.0. For those who want an earlier version, you can just open the example in the thread I linked to earlier.
The input which is 00FFFFFF in the example is what the determines the transparency color. FFFFFF is white.
