Opacity and Transparency

Added by - - over 9 years ago

Hello,
i read on the "feature" list of AdiIRC that it supports transparency.
I haven't found it, can you help me?

Would be great if there is a fast way to make it transparent so only the text from the chatwindow is visible.
So i can "overlay" the chatroom text on any video or anything else, that would be awesome :)

thanks a lot!

Hi.

You can use ctrl + alt + up/down to control the main window opacity.

Not sure what you want but you can hide the userlist, all the bars and so on, so there is only the text left.

If this is not what you want, can you show me a screenshot ?

Thanks for your fast answer!
This feature with ctrl + alt + up/down makes the whole window transparent, thats nice to but im
looking for a way to make everything transparent exept the "text" in the chatwindow.
I use that feature on the irc client "floe irc" heres a screenshot of the settings there:

So the transparency for the rest of the screen is seperatly adjustable from the text area.
If i make the background white, and the text black then it will only show the text from the chat now.

Ah I see, its not really possible to make since I use Winform instead of Wpf like floe, but I might be able to do a fake transparency, ill see what I can come up with.
