I would like to be able to set the background opacity on Form Controls.
Specifically I would like to have a transparent background for the Text Field control, but being able to set opacity % may be more flexible. This is particularly useful for form fields that are on top of an Image background, being exported to PDF as a fillable form.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
Hi I'd like to vote for this bug.
One "easy" solution could be adding a transparency value to the Color Picker window perhaps?
If added to Color Picker, it would enable lots of stuff to have transparency.
This is really useful when fixing badly designed PDFs, or creating forms on top of images.
There is no voting...
That being said, never confirmed by QA - moving to UNCONFIRMED.
I can confirm that this issue still exists in 126.96.36.199: The user can change the background color of a form control, but cannot make it transparent.
I would like to confirm that this is STILL not available as of 188.8.131.52 Release; that is, setting to a transparent background is still not an option. Please continue to investigate this. My particular interest is with a TextBox and FormattedField; however, (as already suggested) if the Transparent Background were an option on the ColorPalette, it would be most useful.
Of course, we would want to continue this transparent background onto our PDF when we Export.
