Declarationprocedure AlphaFill(Value: Byte; Scaled: Boolean = False); overload;
procedure AlphaFill(StartValue, EndValue: Byte; Direction: TIEGradientDir = gdVertical); overload;
Sets the transparency of the alpha channel. Either filling the entire alpha channel to a single value, or graduating from one value to another (gradient transparency).
If Scaled = True, then pixels that are already partially transparent will be scaled in the ratio of Value/255.
0 is transparent, 255 is opaque, 1 - 254 are partially transparent.
Example// Set image as fully transparent
IEBitmap.AlphaFill( 0 );
// Set image as fully opaque
IEBitmap.AlphaFill( 255 );
// Halve the alpha (Double the transparency) of all pixels (fully opaque pixels will become 50%, partially opaque ones will becomes <50%)
IEBitmap.AlphaFill( 128, True );
// Set image as 50% transparent
IEBitmap.AlphaFill( 128 );
// Graduate the transparency from fully transparent on the top to fully opaque on the bottom
IEBitmap.AlphaFill( 0, 255, gdVertical );
