Am I missing something here? I have a 9patch object with a 0.25 Z-elevation value but compared to another 9patch object which is like its twin (minus color and layer differences...layers are ultimately the same, just different ones), there appears to be no distinction.
Nothing I do to the 9patch object in question seems to affect it other than setting its size to that of the layout (the other 9patch also is the same size so one overlaps the other equally). Curiously, the opacity works fine, too. But there is no difference in the Z Elevation.
Am I missing something here? Are 9patch objects an exception? ...which is silly to ask, I know, because it allows me to SET the Z Elevation value...soooo...I'm at a loss here.
