how is it possible to change the Teapot  model as Transparent Teapot in Imagetargets ?

Yes, those 2 lines enable alpha blending; typically you'll want to add those lines right before rendering the augmentation (your transparent objects), right after drawing the video background. 

You'll also want to disable GL_BLEND after rendering the augmentation.

The relevant source code is in ImageTargetsRenderer class, if you are using the Image Targets sample app as a starting point; look in the Render() method.

As I understand I should enable Alpha Blending with the following lines :


but (for imageTargets sample) :

-Should I do that in Renderer Source code? (for example imageTargetsRenderer.java)

if yes,

between which lines  exactly should I implement  these lines?

or am I on the wrong way to solution?

This is more of an OpenGL question than a "Vuforia specific" one.

You can render transparent models so long as:

- you enable Alpha Blending in your OpenGL pipeline: https://www.opengl.org/archives/resources/faq/technical/transparency.htm

- you implement a Fragment Shader that sets the opacity (alpha component) of your fragment color, either based on a per-vertex attribute passes from the Vertex Shader, or through a Uniform shader parameter set by the application
