    by , 10-17-2011 at 10:37 PM
    Ever wanted to try and set the transparency level of some JWindow's or JFrames? Here is another snippet of code to keep close by that might come in handy.

    Java Code:
    try {
    	Class<?> awtUtilitiesClass = Class.forName("com.sun.awt.AWTUtilities");
    	Method method = awtUtilitiesClass.getMethod("setWindowOpacity", Window.class, float.class);	
    	method.invoke(null, /*JFrame or JWindow here*/, /*The opacity level in float value from 0.0 to 1*/);
