    modalPanel opacity issues.... why?

    Peter Len Apprentice

      Hello,

       

      I have several modalPanels.  For a couple of them, I need to set the opacity so that the modalPanel is slightly transparent.  Initially, I set the stryel attribute to be style='-moz-opacity:0.90;filter:alpha(opacity=90)'.  Worked fine in both Firefox 2 but in IE 7 it only worked if the modalPanel did not have the autosized="true" attribute.  I saw a forum question of this same time back in 2008/2007 which stated to declare

       

      .rich-mpnl-panel {
         -moz-opacity:0.70;
         filter:alpha(opacity=70);
      }

       

      That did not work for either Firefox 2 or IE 7.  What did seem to work (I tried basically all of the internal style classes for a modalPanel), sort of, was:

       

      .rich-modalpanel {
         -moz-opacity:0.70;
         filter:alpha(opacity=70);
      }

       

      This seemed to work fine in Firefox 2  but in IE 7, the modalPanel never even was displayed.  I am not sure if it actually did get displayed but for some reason it was fully transparent.  That would be odd.

       

      So, the only way I seem to be able to get a modalPanel to have some transparency was to declare the values in the modalPanel's style attribute, but, again, IE 7 would not render it properly if the modalPanel had the autosized set.

       

      Does anyone have any thoughts on what might be happening?

       

      Thanks - Peter
