Thanks. I get it now. I had used a black to white gradient, but white to
white gives a better feather result. What do you have the blending ink set

The ink is default: srcCopy. No need to set it otherwise.

OK - given that an image is involved (I think I missed that bit) and
assuming you are feathering to a solid background colour, the best result
that I got was overlaying two identically sized transparent graphics with
a one or two pixel white border and an outer glow. The second graphic has
I don't quite follow this. I made an oval graphic, set up a radial gradient
with both colors set to white and made the fill color clear (is this what
you mean by the inner color?—nothing shows at all if you set the opaque to
false). I got a radial gradient that covered the image, but I'm
I was referring to the opacity of the inner color stop of the gradient.
Use two colors in the radial gradient, such as white to white, and set the
opacity of the color stop assigned to the inner color of the gradient to 0.
The result looks like this:
As did I. What happened when you set the linesize to 0?

Hi Howard - the outerglow (and innerglow) of an object display fine for me
on both a field and an (and this bit is important) *opaque* graphic object
when their borderWidth and lineSize properties are respectively set to 0.

I'll bet it's what Terry said. I remember being surprised once when effects
didn't work on a transparent graphic.

When the graphic or button is transparent and show name is selected, you should
see the outerGlow effect around the name of the control.

Yes this is true and understood. However, I've been working with
Brahmanathswami to find a solution for a transparent object because, as he
says, "Any inner glow or outer glow leaves a sharp edge on the object no
matter what we do." (with an opaque object)
He was looking for a way to feather
I'm guessing you guys want the final result to be rectangular and not
oval-shaped. That's too bad because you could use a radial gradient using
a single color (i.e. white to white) in a graphic with the inner color set
to 100% transparent -- this makes a near-perfect mask but only in oval

The way one *should* be able to do this is using the innerGlow effect.
However, by itself, using the basic setting is not strong enough, and the
spread effect is backwards (increases outward, rather than inward -- bug)
so that's useless.
You can achieve a feather effect using multiple objects
OK, what about thisŠ
Transparent (non opaque) graphic object with a 1 pixel linesize. Apply an
outer glow - this will display equally on either side of the border. Then
alter the border colour to match the glow where it adjoins the border. The
border Œdisappears¹ but it may or may not simulate
If you set the line size to 0, the outer glow disappears.

For what kind of object? I tested it on a graphic object.

You need to make the group with the object wider and taller than the object
with the graphic effects in order to show the graphic effects “undisturbed”.
You must also set the lockLoc (Lock size & position) of the group to true.

I've seen clipping of graphic effects when the object with the effect is in a
group. For example I had a round rect with a drop shadow with other objects
placed inside it. When I grouped them, the drop shadow became clipped. I
removed the drop shadow from the rect and applied it to the group
Does anyone have any method to “feather” the edges of a fld, rect or grc?
Any inner glow or outer glow leaves a sharp edge on the object no matter what
Any options there?
