Hi all,

i have a question. When exactly should a GlassPlane be used? And how can i find out whats under it(Buttons, Labels etc.)
Sure i could use use the position of the mouse-cursor but that won't help if it is something like a scrollable menu or something, right?

Maybe someone can bring a bit light into the dark.

Thank you,

mk
