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

should be possible. but the background of the screen will still be white.

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

just didn't thought that thing exists, I must check the APIs first before posting on forum.
thanks for the prompt response.

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.

will go currently with solidTransparentBackground. Meanwhile if anybody find something for transparency in gradient background.
