tiles transparency

Nov 25, 2015 at 8:11 AM
For normal layers and shapes it is possible to set semi-transparency. Is this also possible for the tiles layer?

I don't want to be mixed up by the map when looking for data in the layers.

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Looking at the Tiles class (http://www.mapwindow.org/documentation/mapwingis4.9/class_tiles.html) this is not possible.

Tiles layers are always the most bottom layer. If you make them semi-transparent they will blend into the white background. Is that what you want?
A workaround is to have a button on your application to make the tiles visible or not.

Because there is a lot of information displayed on the map users are getting mixed up with all the information on the most bottom layer wich is the tiles. So I expect it would help setting transperency to 50% to make the relevant information better visible.
