    Skin doesn't support transparent colour

    Christopher Davies Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I have  a drop down menu on my application (Richfaces 3.3.3) and my designer designed me a nice looking panel to put it on, however since I can't set the panel my menu sits on to a transparent colour, my nicely designed panel will not be seen.

       

      If I put "transparent" as the colour for my background on this panel, RF throws an exception because it expects a numeric value. Is there any way to get around this?

       

      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Parameter "color" for convert from HTML to java can not be decoded: [transparent], reason: For input string: "transparent"

      Thanks for any advice
