[quote=“dave96”]Or you just want to ‘fade’ your background slightly I would overlay it with a semi opaque white as the text editor background. Something like:
textEditor->setColour (TextEditor::backgroundColourId, (Colours::white).withAlpha(0.5f));
I think this can get me close, perhaps even “good enough” - at least much better than I have been able to achieve with other frameworks.
Essentially, a View (panel) with many Text controls can have any picture overlay (or “underlay”). It’s either the picture’s responsibility to make sure that characters in the text controls are clearly readable, yet sufficiently blending in or the text control’s responsibility too fade out the picture background where needed.
And, it should look good during a resizing.
I am trying to figure out how little work I can get away with
Thanks for the input here!
