mouse from arrow to hand

Sep 17, 2009 1:45 PM

How do you change the mouse from an arrow to hand when mouse is over a button or a data list component? Is there a way to do this in the UI of Catalyst and if not... how do I do it in Flash Builder?

    Hi trancepriest,

     

    To have the hand cursor appear just over the list items, add these attributes to the root <s:ItemRenderer> tag of your Repeated Item .mxml file (instead of adding them to the <s:List> tag).

    Hi Peter,

     

    Is there a way to do this from within Catalyst?   My button does not need to link to a URL, (if that makes a difference...)

     

    Thanks,

     

    Raymond

    Nevermind, I found the hand cursor check box (in the Button Appearance Properties)

    Thanks for finding that, it's just what I was looking for. But it isn't working for me. I've tried twice with 2 different buttons. I select the button and check the Hand Cursor checkbox in the Properties panel. What could I be doing wrong?

    Thanks,

    Ellen

    Hi Ellen,

     

    I haven't seen that problem. Note that you won't see the hand cursor until you preview or publish the project and roll over the button. Is that what you're doing?

    I think what happened is that I changed the buttons on one page but not others. These buttons are on all pages (it's the navigation bar), so I assumed it would work on all pages, but it doesn't. I have to select each page on top, then check the Hand Cursor box for each button on each page. So, with that in mind, I can say it's working. Is that the way it's supposed to work?

    Yup. Whenever you change properties in the Properties panel, the changes only effect the current state (page). You can push changes to all states by choosing Modify > Make Same in All States, but this will push all the properties.

    Adam makes a good point to check that the properties for the cursor are selected correctly in all states.

     

    Also check that when you are testing in your browser that the old files aren't being cached.

     

    There's a related FAQ here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2885756#2885756

     

    And here is a quick wireframe to illustrate it working on a button.

     

    Best,

    Tanya
