Dashboard Designer 7.60 problem with PNG image-objects with an alpha-channel

Hi,

 

Using the new Dashboard Designer 7.60 (html), PNG image-objects with an Alpha-channel do not show alarm-state collor.

In the old Dashboard Designer (flash), PNG images-objects were able to fill in the Alpa channel with the alarm-state collor.

 

In the new Dashboard Designer you need 2 objects to create the same effect, namely: an extra alamr rectangle (as background) with the alarm-state collor + png image (in front) with an alpha-channel.

 

is this standard behaviour or a bug? Our do I miss something here?

 

To show what I mean:

 

New Dashboard Desiginer (html) - 2 objects needed for alert sate of an png object with aplha channel?:

Old Dashboard Designer (flash) - only one png image-object with aplha-channel was needed.

Anyone experience the same, any tips or tricks?

 

Best regards
