    I once found a website that had fully transparent glass buttons made with Flash. Does anyone know where I might find something similar to learn from ?

    Thanks,
    Stephen.

    A link or example might help clarify what you are trying to say.

    If I had a link or example then I wouldn't need to be asking this question !

    Try playing around with the tint and Alpha settings, with your colour pallete , you gotta work with layers to make the over all thing work, like one layer the actual button, and transparent, then the other layer a faint outline, then another layer for the shadows, and then another layer for refractions, like highlights,

    its kinda hard to do this with flash, so try it with photoshop and play around with the opacity, But i'm not sure, i don't think Photoshop is for Vector graphics, So try Adobe illustrator,

    With Photoshop there are a several 3rd party Filters like Eye Candy Which will give you the glass Effect, but if you can't get your hands on it, then you'll have to do it free hand with the Air brush for the highlights
