SensorPanel Transparency

Recommended Posts

Not sure if you are still maintaining the SensorPanel, but if so, would it be deemed useful to add an option to set the SensorPanel background transparency, to allow to fade it and have just the sensor value be displayed?

The SensorPanel rendering engine doesn't support background transparency.

A disingenuous statement to say the least. If I set the existing option for the Transparency value to greater than zero, it fades the background just fine.

The honest statement would be to say you no longer support the SensorPanel, and will not add the few line of code required to render the background separately from the sensor values.

Please gain a bit more knowledge about our software, try the different features and settings before submitting such bold and obviously incorrect statements.  If you set the SensorPanel transparency setting to a non-zero value in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / SensorPanel, the whole SensorPanel will become opaque, not just the background.  So it's not a background transparency setting at all.

Second, if making only the background transparent would involve just a few lines of code, don't you think we would have done it years ago?  It's a lot more complicated than that.

Finally, the SensorPanel -- just like all other features of AIDA64 -- are still actively developed.  Not everything is touched or tweaked daily, since that would mean hiring 100 more developers to work for us, but for example, a few weeks ago we worked on SensorPanel window and SensorPanel item configuration window positioning for multi-monitor systems...
