Hi CHris,

Import a snapshot of the card. Set the blendLevel of the new image control to 50 and move the image control 3 or 4 pixels to the top-left. You can easily to this by script. You don't need to use  static picture for this. You can do this dynamically, to make correspond to the current state of the screen.

Best regards,

If it's not possible, can something be done to an image to create this effect, and then have that image imported into an LC stack?
