Description

Applies a four-color gradient and transparency modifications to the input entity ID. Color values can be input using GameMaker Studio's built-in color constants or functions like VNgen's make_color_hex_to_rgb.

All modifications made with this script are permanent and will persist until another modification is performed. This script cannot be performed simultaneously with other modification actions operating on the same entity ID.

See Macros & Keywords for a list of available ease modes.

Example

vngen_event() {
vngen_textbox_modify_style("tb", c_red, c_red, c_white, c_white, 1, 2);
}

This will apply a red tint along the top of the textbox, perhaps to represent a character whose theme color is red.
