Transparency Cell (Layers Section)

Office 2007

Determines the transparency level for a layer color.

ValueDescription

0 - 100

Represents the percentage of transparency. The default is 0% (completely opaque).

Remarks

Values are rounded to the nearest half percent. A value of 100% is completely transparent. Although a layer with completely transparent color appears the same as a layer with no color on the drawing page, it will interact with other objects on the page in the same ways as if its transparency is 0%. You can also set this value using the slider control in the Layer Properties dialog box (click Layer properties on the View menu).

To get a reference to the Transparency cell by name from another formula, or from a program using the CellsU property, use:

Cell name:

Layers.ColorTrans[i]
where i = <1>, 2, 3...

To get a reference to the Transparency cell by index from a program, use the CellsSRC property with the following arguments:

Section index:

visSectionLayer

Row index:

visRowLayer + i
where i = 0, 1, 2...

Cell index:

visLayerColorTrans
