setAlpha( alpha )

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:

function setup() {
  createCanvas(600, 300);
  
  alphaSlider = createSlider(0, 255, 128);
  alphaSlider.position(30, 50);
}
  
function draw() {
  clear();
  textSize(18);
  
  // Get the alpha value from the slider
  let alphaValue = alphaSlider.value();
  
  let newColor = color(128, 255, 128);
  
  // Set the alpha value of the color
  newColor.setAlpha(alphaValue);
    
  background(newColor);
  fill('black');
  text("Move the slider to change the " +
       "alpha component of the background color",

  strokeWeight(1);
  
  // Get the alpha value from the slider
  let alphaValue = alphaSlider.value();
  
  let newColor = color(255, 128, 128);
  
  // Set the alpha value of the color
  newColor.setAlpha(alphaValue);
    
  noStroke();
