Show/Hide with button hot spot

Mar 23, 2012 11:17 PM

I've seen this done with other interactive magazines, but have not been able to figure it out myself. I'd like to be able to touch one "hot spot" and have some content appear, then touch the same "hot spot" to have the content disappear. Is this even possible to do with DPS, or might this magazine have been using other software?

    Hello
    Is it possible to do the following ?

     

    01: to have targets (green circles) acting as buttons

    01.jpg

     

    02: when you chose ot click on one of these (here green) target, it opens an image or text like this (yellow rectangle) AND makes ALL OTHER TARGETS DISAPPEAR

    note: if you click on the top right green target, it opens ANOTHER destination close to it etc.)

    03 : when you click on the opened destination (here the yellow rectangle), the destination disappears and all other green targets come back (back to 01).

    AND then it can act the same way for all others

    I tried many ways, can't find the trick, if there is one

    Put everything into an MSO including the buttons. The first screenshot you showed would be state 1 of the MSO. Tap on one of the buttons and it takes you to another state.

    yes

    main problem seems to be that if i try to insert a button in one state of the MSO (like: go back to "STATE1 where you only see he buttons"), the button does NOT work

    First: sorry for my bad english. Second: sorry for this stupid question!

    I use Hot Spot Button but i don't understand what it means: hot spot?

    And also: what is the difference between Button and Hot Spot Button?

    A hot spot is a type of button. In DPS, a hot spot button lets you tap an area to display a pop-up image. The pop-up image usually has a close (X) button.
