## Making a button opaque / see through

I was watching this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGKyW4b_VXk

The author is able to make a button "see through" with a HTML rectangle (in the shape of a button) behind it with shading. They are able to make the button see through so you can see the shading.

How does he do this? Any ideas?

Hi @morall ,

Set the fourth RGBA value in the Fill to a decimal for instance RGBA(128, 128, 128, 0.5) will get a nice semi-transparent grey

In the RGBA() function the 4th parameter is a decimal value between 0 (transparent) and 1 (solid).  So the following would be the standard blue color at 50% transparency.  Assign that to the Fill property of the button.

``RGBA(56, 96, 178, .5)``
