This is working like a charm with windows and OS X, not on linux.

I tried with any graphic effects available in the inspector:
dropShadow, innerShadow, etc.
If the button has an icon, the icon is correctly displayed but not the
name of the button.

Thanks for the suggestion.
Another solution could consist to have a field with the name over the
opaque button itself.
After several tests I obtained the effect I expected for the three platforms.

This is something to take in care for cross-platform projects.
