I have a script blurb in the client startup to change the background of tool-tips.
from javax.swing import UIManager from java.awt import Color UIManager.put("ToolTip.background", Color(100,100,100,100))
Seems to work great except for a minor annoyance. The alpha channel is ignored on the first mouse-over of components with a tool-tip, in this case a navigation template. Moving quickly to another component before the expiration will cause the alpha channel to be honored. Waiting until the expiration and then moving over another (or the same) component causes the alpha value to be ignored again.
Scratching head. Any words of wisdom?
