This property determines the transparency of the
GuiObject|GUI's background and border.
It does not, however, determine the transparency of text if the GUI is a
TextLabel. Text transparency is determined
If the property is set to 1, neither the background nor the border will render and the GUI will be completely transparent.
Flash Fade a Gui Element
The example below demonstrates how to continuously fade a GUI element in and out (see image below). It relies on the
RenderService/RenderStepped event to update and render the element’s
GuiObject/BackgroundTransparency every frame.
The GUI element fades in and out between the maximum transparency value,
MAX_TRANSPARENCY, and minimum transparency value,
MIN_TRANSPARENCY. It uses the
delta variable to determine what amount to change the element’s BackgroundTransparency.
This example should work as expected when placed in a
LocalScript that is the child of the GUI element you want to fade in and out.
