View Full Version : Resolved White background not transparent

02-12-2009, 04:09 AM
I added some flash CSS buttons at the top of this website, but that white background won't go transparent. Any help?



.aerobuttonmenu a.aero{ /*aero button CSS*/
background: transparent url('images/aeroleft.gif') no-repeat top left;
display: block;
float: left;
font: bold 13px Verdana, Trebuchet MS; /* Change 13px as desired */
line-height: 23px; /* This value + 8px should equal height of button background (default is 31px) */
height: 31px; /* Height of button background height */
padding-left: 10px; /* Width of left menu image */
text-decoration: none;
margin-right: 5px; /*spacing between buttons*/
filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(opacity=90); /*this and next two rules control opacity of buttons before hover*/
opacity: 0.9;
-moz-opacity: 0.9;

.aerobuttonmenu a.aero:link, .aerobuttonmenu a.aero:visited, .aerobuttonmenu a:active{
color: white; /*button text color*/

.aerobuttonmenu a.aero span{
background: transparent url('images/aeroright.gif') no-repeat top right;
display: block;
padding: 4px 10px 6px 0; /*Set 10px here to match value of 'padding-left' value above*/

.aerobuttonmenu a.aero:hover{
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(opacity=100); /*this and next two rules control opacity of buttons during hover*/
opacity: 1;
-moz-opacity: 0.99;

.aerobuttonmenu a.aero:hover span{ /* Hover state CSS (for text) */
color: yellow;

.black a.aero{
background-image: url('media/aeroleftblack.gif');

.black a.aero span{
background-image: url('media/aerorightblack.gif');

.aerobuttonmenu .rightsection{
float: right;
width: 100px;
position: relative;
top: 3px;
padding-right: 5px;
text-align: right;

.aerobuttonmenu .rightsection a{
color: navy;


<div id="header">
<div class="aerobuttonmenu">

<a href="index.html" class="aero"><span>Home</span></a>
<a href="location.html" class="aero"><span>Location</span></a>

Remove this:

.aerobuttonmenu{ /*container that holds a row of aero buttons*/
overflow: hidden; /*See: http://www.quirksmode.org/css/clearing.html */
width: auto;
/* background: #F7F7F7; */ /*menu strip background*/
border: 1px solid gray;
padding: 4px 0;
border-width: 1px 0;

As far as making the button corner areas transparent, you could use a PNG with transparency or (which is probably easier) make them a gray color that blends with the site background.

Excellent works, thank you, the corners there is only like 3 pixels max with white and it really doesn't look bad so I am just going to leave it :D
