I'm looking to have implemented a way to dim brighten the CADRG and Imagery
layers like Falconview does.

Subject: [OpenMap Users] Creating a brighter area of map

I think this is possibly more of a Java question than a map question,
but hope that someone in this forum may know of a solution!
Part of my map application allows a user to draw an area of interest
onto the map. I used to indicate the boundary of this area by colouring
it transparently, however, I received complaints that this interfered
with using the map too much.
After trying a few prototypes, I have found the effect I want to achieve
- to brighten the selected area. (See the attached screenshot mock,
which I made up using the Brighten option in Paint Shop Pro 7.)
The problem is, I have no idea at the moment how to go about creating
this effect in OpenMap/Java...
If anyone has any suggestions I will be very grateful!
