Fade effect for a Field

Hi Pascal,

You need this:

on fadeControl theLongID
   repeat with x = 100 down to 0 with messages
     set the blendLevel of theLongID to x
     wait 1 millisec with messages
   end repeat
   wait 2 seconds with messages
   repeat with x = 0 to 100 with messages
     set the blendLevel of theLongID to x
     wait 1 millisec with messages
   end repeat
end fadeControl

usage:

fadeControl the long id of fld 1

There are many ways to write the same script. You can adjust it to 
simply use the number of a field and you can increase the waiting time. 
You could even use steps to reduce the waiting time, but then you'd have 
a less smooth effect.
