I've got the idea for a movie menu with something similar to choice boxes.
Here is an animation I created which shows my idea.
Is there any way to realize that?
When you click Video 2, it goes to another menu with identical appearance, but where button B goes to video 2B and button A goes to video 2A. Clicking Video 1 goes back to the original menu where A/B are 1A/1B.
Whether this is what you want depends on how many options you really have.
My animation doesn't show the real menu. It shows just the idea behind it.
The real menu should be like a chapter menu for every day of a journey.
Each day has a diary animation and the filmed video.
Now comes the highlight conflict.
The picture of the specific day should be highlighted AND diary or video.
So the highlight of diary + picture would have the same highlighted pixels as the video + picture highlight.
Hope you underestand now the problem with the four buttons.
I've got already a solution for the problem.
Yes, the "area" for a button is the rectangle that holds all of its elements. You are wanting to select a button and have it effect a highlight that is not part of the smaller button area. The method I described is one way to handle that as well.
