255 No The alpha opacity.

 

   

Notes
 

Allows you to get or set the alpha opacity of the color.

Alpha values can range from 0 to 255. Zero indicates fully transparent and 255 indicates fully opaque.

 

   

Example
 

Here we create a PDF document showing how different values of alpha result in different levels of transparency.

[C#]

using (Doc doc = new Doc()) {
  doc.Rect.Inset(20, 20);
  doc.FontSize = 300;
  for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++) {
    doc.Color.Alpha = 255 / i;
    doc.AddText(doc.Color.Alpha.ToString());
    doc.Rect.Move(25, -50);
  }
  doc.Save(Server.MapPath("coloralpha.pdf"));
}


[Visual Basic]
Using doc As New Doc()
  doc.Rect.Inset(20, 20)
  doc.FontSize = 300
  For i As Integer = 1 To 10
    doc.Color.Alpha = 255 \ i
    doc.AddText(doc.Color.Alpha.ToString())
    doc.Rect.Move(25, -50)
  Next i
  doc.Save(Server.MapPath("coloralpha.pdf"))
End Using
