Interesting, I just asked a similar question yesterday
about overlapping histograms - I want to see one through
the other. No solution yet, but would like to know if you
find one.

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,
