StoreSearch: question with view opaque vs alpha


I need some help

I follow steps in creating pop-up view to display more detail information. However, my pop-up view is also transparent and that I can see through the SearchViewController. Please see the link for screenshot


As in the tutorial, the Background color of the main view is black, 50% opaque (is this alpha?). Background color of the pop-up view is while, 95% opaque

Any idea why this happened ?

Thank you

@hollance @fahim Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

Hi, this is because you’ve modified the Alpha value for the view which controls the transparency for the whole view. To set the opacity of the colour, you can click on the arrow next to the colour and then select the “Other…” option which is at the bottom of the list. Or, you can simply double-click the colour and that should open up the colour picker dialog too.

Once you have the colour picker dialog, if you go to the second tab (Color Sliders), if it is not open already, you should see the Opacity slider at the bottom. This is where you set the opacity for a specific color.

@fahim, thank you. It’s correct now :slight_smile:
I must have missed this opaque setting somewhere from previous tutorials

@oaranger Happy to help :slight_smile: I’m glad that you were able to sort it out.
