ShdwForegndTrans Cell (Fill Format Section)

Determines the transparency level for the color used for the foreground (stroke) of the shape's drop shadow fill pattern.



0 - 100

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

Values are rounded to the nearest half percent. A value of 100% is completely transparent. Although a shadow that has a completely transparent fill appears the same on the drawing page as a shadow that has no fill, it interacts with other objects on the page in the same ways as if its transparency were 0%.

You can also set this value by using the slider control in the Shadow dialog box (on the Home tab, in the Shape group, click Shadow, and then click Shadow Options). This value controls the value of both the background and foreground shadow transparencies. To set these values independently, you must enter them in the ShapeSheet window.
