In the graph editor ( stata 10.1) 

After creating the graphs using your code.

I go can then go to the graph editor, area properties

Set the color to none
Check the different outline color and set it to black or whatever color. You
can see one graph through the other

If it can be don't through the graph editor I am sure it can be done from
the command line

Dear All,

I am writing a graphing procedure (directly with Stata's undocumented
gdi commands). There is a pseudo-transparency effect as can be seen

sysuse auto, clear
generate ww = weight * 2.85
twoway area price ww l, sort fi(100 100)
twoway area price ww l, sort fi(30 30)

Is it possible to achieve "true-transparency" (where the first "blue"
graph could be seen through the second "pink")?

In technical terms: does gdi shadelevel set color or the method of
drawing (SET,OR,AND,XOR)? I.e. is it equivalent to
gdi shadergb = `i' * `R'    `i' * `G'    `i' * `B'

Thank you,
   Sergiy Radyakin
