Default graphics.draw on transparent imagepart

Please Login to Remove!

i have an icon of 64x64 size, only the horizontal middle is visible, the rest is transparent.

i'd like to draw a number on the transparent part, as to appear under the icon.

Code:
Bitmap b = Bitmap.getBitmapResource("icon.png");
Graphics g = new Graphics(b);
g.drawText("10", 40, 30);
unfortunately the text is cut off on the lower end of the nontransparent area.

i tried g.setGlobalAlpha(255); with no effect.

any idea how to draw on the transparent part?

it seems that drawing on a transparent image is not possible.
i draw my partly transparent image on a white one, add the text and replace all white with transparency. not pretty but it works.

I have not tried your case which you use the graphics object of the bitmap to draw the text, but I could draw text on the transparent picture by loading the BitmapField onto the screen then loading the RichTextField onto the screen and above the BitmapField.


Bitmap bm = new Bitmap(268, 196);
BitmapField bmf = new BitmapField(bm);
m.add(bmf, 0, 0, 268, 196);
Graphics g = new Graphics(bm);
Utility.drawImage(g, "about2.gif", 0, 0, 268, 196);

RichTextField f = new RichTextField();
// application name
f.setText(CohFsConstants.aboutApplication);
m.add(f, 7, 20, 300, 16);
// version

f = new RichTextField();
f.setText(CohFsConstants.aboutVersion);
m.add(f, 7, 50, 300, 16);
