This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
I'd like to put a jpg graphic of variable transparency over an operable Swing layout.
The Swing tutorials demonstrate graphics with variable transparency within the Graphic, however, the Swing components are outside the graphic. Another example on the web positions an opaque Swing panel over the top of a graphic. But what I'd like is to have the jpg cover the graphic completely at one end of the slider, while at the other end, only the Swing component are visible.
