Hey guys,

I was trying to ceate some UI using layerButton, somehow can't seems to set the color on layerButton UI control. It will work if I create a layer and set the layer to the control but I don't want to create a layer with it.

layerButton -label "myLabel" test;

//then when I try to set the color it doesn't work?
layerButton -edit -color 0 1.0 0 test;

any thoughts ?

I don't know if it will help but I use to have problems with -bgc flag when creating color for UI window so I declare a variable first and apply it as a value.

float $r = 1;
float $g = 0;
float $b = 0;

button -bgc $r $g $b;

will return red button. Try it and let us know how it goes

Base on your post, the problem you are having is you need to indicate whether the layer color is visible or transparent.

Try this

//set transparent to 0
layerButton -edit -transparent 0 test;
//then edit your color
layerButton -edit -color 0 1.0 0 test;
