    Specific problem with buttons and states

    pintografico

      Hello,

       

      I first apologize for using Google Translate :-(

       

      I have a problem with InDesign not solve. It is for a digital publication.

       

      My goal is:

      A 'gallery' button is pressed and the ball image appears with three buttons: "Previous image", "Next image" and "close gallery".

      I do not want the gallery to be visible, or buttons that control, until the button is pressed "gallery", so I think all buttons except "gallery" with the "hidden until activated" option selected.

       

      I want the gallery, and buttons that control it, disappears when I press the button "close gallery".

       

      What I call "Gallery" is an image that fills the screen.

      After placing the image on your site have become the property button "Hidden until activated."

      Then convert this button in order to several states (what I will call "button states") and by the successive states with the images I want to show in the gallery.

       

      I think the interactions of the buttons.

       

      When button "gallery" I assign the following "I click the"

      - "Go to state"

      - Hide "gallery"

      - Show "close gallery"

      - Show "previous picture"

      - Show "next image"

      - Show "button states."

       

      The buttons "Previous Image" and "Next Image" are assigned, respectively, to go to previous state and go to the next state.

       

      When button "close gallery" I assign the following "I click the"

      - Show "gallery"

      - Hide "close gallery"

      - Hide "previous picture"

      - Hide "next image"

      - Show "button states."

       

      The buttons "Previous Image" and "Next Image" are assigned, respectively, to go to previous state and go to the next state.

       

      When button "close gallery" I assign the following "I click the"

      - Show "gallery"

      - Hide "close gallery"

      - Hide "previous picture"

      - Hide "next image"

      - Hide "button states."

       

      I put it up and working properly until I press "close gallery". Then I hide the buttons "close gallery", "previous image" and "next picture" but it keeps me visible "button states" showing the last image that was shown.

       

      Do not know how to fix this and I'm going crazy!

       

      Please can anyone help me?

       

      The solution may be another approach but without using "Folio Overlays".

       

      Thank you very much.

          I've moved your post to the DPS forum.

           

          I'm afraid the way you're doing this is not going to work with DPS.

           

          This should all be done with a multi state object. The first state would contain nothing but a button to go to the first state. After that set up each state with the proper buttons. Without seeing the file it's a bit difficult for me to envision exactly what you want to do.

            Thanks for your comment.

            I know my explanation was complex.

            I do not understand your suggestion.

            If you indicate me how do I send the file to make things easier.

            It is very Important for me to have the help of expert people and I'm in a "dead end."

            Thank you again.
