Sets wanted transparency for control animation. Requires ctrlCommit to commit changes. To hide or show a control instantly, use ctrlShow.
Despite having fade = 1; inside a control's config, ctrlFade will still report a fade of 0.

Which results in ctrlSetFade 0 doing nothing in that situation.

To counter that, first use ctrlSetFade 1, then ctrlCommit 0 ( to instantly apply it ), and then you can use ctrlSetFade to set the fade to any value you wish.
GUI Control


controlName ctrlSetFade fade
controlName: Control
fade: Number
Return Value:


Example 1:
_control ctrlSetFade 1; _control ctrlCommit 5;

Unfortunately, in Arma 3 2.17, when ctrlSetFade is used on a CtrlToolbox or RscToolbox, it only has effect on the text of it.
