Title

Hide, make transparent, or cover fields when layout opens

Post

I have several search layouts. Rather than the fields showing the last record accessed when the layout is open, I would prefer either,

a) the fields be empty until the search field is filled in

b) the fields be hidden or obscured by a rectangle which could be made transparent

I don't know how to change the properties of an object via script.  I don't know how to make objects transparent by manual means.  Searches in text and on the forum don't say much about how to implement transparency.

Any ideas?
