set a background image for a TextArea or Label?

Hey gang,


I'd like to set a background image for a TextArea or a Label.


is there a way to do this?


alternatively, if i set the background at the root container level and make the rest of the controls slightly transparent (opacity: 0.8 or something), will the background show through?

Re: set a background image for a TextArea or Label?

for your text area, set backgroundVisible: false &/or turn the opacity down enough that you can see through it and place your background image behind the text area. (i belive opacity changes will affect the text as well though).  


for labels, i used the container method as you described.
