Quartz beta - will we be able to change the background color of the map view in iOS/Android? specifically, a transparent background color so that the underlying UIView is visible?
also, will the opengl context be available?
also, can you set the map to have no basemap? (I suppose you could just load a custom basemap with transparent tiles but that seems wasteful)
is this the proper location to ask Quartz beta questions?
Here's what I was able to dig up for you:
I'd be interested to learn a little more about what you're trying to do that you want the transparency and the OpenGL context.
Hope this helps.
1. overlaying the map on other content. for iOS, wouldn't this work:
view.opaque = NO;
view.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
and then in the gl render code:
glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
2. not really needed, just asking
3. cool, thanks. is this available in beta1 right now?
when is beta2 going to be released?
