    Hi,

    I need to set the opacity of a shape but not by setting the alpha values of the fill and stroke.  The reason I can't use those is because I need them to blend uniformly and then apply an opacity to the resulting shape.   I think there may be a bug in that the opacity isn't hooked up to the internal shape.  This would be another reason to expose the MapShape.Shape property publicly so one could just set the properties of the shape itself.

    Cheers,
    Clint

    Hi Clint Singer,

    Indeed, in the current version the Opacity property is not propagated to the internal shape. It seems reasonable to pass this value to the real shape. It will be implemented in the SP1. As for the Map.Shape.Shape property we do not plan to expose it for the moment, because it will cause a lot of misunderstanding and problems.

    Fair enough.  The only concern then is that enough of the necessary properties are exposed and passed to the internal shape.  Opacity is just one of the properties and I am sure that there are more but at the moment I can't think of any.  Its not until you need the feature do you realize it is missing :)

    Cheers,
    Clint

    Hi,

    Could you please also add the Visibilty property to the list of properties that need to be connected to the internal Shape.  I need to change the visiblity of the MapShape without removing it from the Items list.

    Cheers,
    Clint

    Update: I rephrased my request so it didn't sound so demanding :)

    Hi Clint,

    Thanks for the suggestion. We will include Visibilty to the list of the properties which are propagated to the internal shape.
