MSO Control in scrollable frames?
I created hyperlink buttons and put into scrollable frames, they worked well.
I tried to change the status of muliti status objects with same way, but it didn't work.
How can I do it?
Is it possible?
Is it the case that this is now possible (there's now an example and instructions in Bob Brinhurst's DPS tips)?
I have tried repeatedly to get this to work though without success. Here's the process I used:
Having pasted the buttons into text to create anchored objects and then pasted the whole lot into the container frame (and selected pan only) I have gone back into the buttons and re-created the actions. The frame scrolls but none of the buttons work... The MSO just stays in the same state.
Other things to note...
- I have not moved the content frame at all
- I have also created an invisible button (with a 'go to next state' action) that changes the states of the MSO - before I did this the MSO disappeared in Content Viewer.
Is the MSO you're linking to an actual slideshow? There is a known issue that embedded buttons don't convert an MSO to a slideshow. The workaround is to change a setting in the Overlays panel or create an invisible non-embedded button that goes to an MSO state. Is that the issue?
I created an MSO with several states (text, images and transparency). Then I created a pan-only object with several buttons placed in initially visible and hidden parts of the scrollable frame content. I attached a "go to state n" action to each of them only after pasting the group into the container frame. Finally I moved the MSO to a layer above the pan-only object.
Everything works as expected. The pan pans, the buttons are active, the states change over the pan with transparency preserved.
Don't suppose I could have a look as well Tomek?
I've still not made any progress with this. I've tried putting the MSO and the content frame on different layers but still nothing...
Bob: The MSO isn't a slideshow in that it doesn't play automatically (not sure if that is the definition?). The different states are intended to only be made visible by tapping the buttons inserted into the panning content frame.
Hi Tomasz - just wondering if you got this resolved?
Having the same issue with scrollable frames (placing small thumbnails in a scrollable frame with invisible buttons to navigate through a larger MSO).
