BackgroundFactory to create transparent background

Is it possible to use BackgroundFactory to create background with some transparency? or any workaround to achieve that?

Re: BackgroundFactory to create transparent background

Does BackgroundFactory.createSolidTransparentBackground() work for you?

Another approach could be to use the transparent bitmap with BackgroundFactory.createBitmapBackground().

Re: BackgroundFactory to create transparent background

Re: BackgroundFactory to create transparent background

I am actually using BackgroundFactory.createLinearGradientBackground it dont accept alpha as parameter, not event the color value itself is having alpha.

 

Any thoughts how to achieve that in gradient itself. I think i may have to use drawFilledPath or something like this to create gradient with a bit of transparency.
