Transparent Background on real device

Hello,

does this

 

 <transparent>true</transparent>

 work on the real device? I heard that it is not working on the real thing.

Anyone?

Re: Transparent Background on real device

if you expect to see wallpaper  - no it does not, it would be black background

Re: Transparent Background on real device

Does anyone know whether there will be the possibility to set the background transparent with future updates of the OS?

It will be in the release notes after a new update is posted. We have never known much prior to a new release.

Re: Transparent Background on real device

The idea was to use an own background which is partially transparent so that the user still sees his personal wallpaper but knows that he can't interact with it.
