I need to tell my users to set their printer to landscape. I
can't control their print orientation and I can't change my print
parameters in a way that allows portrait to work.
I wanted to use a simple popup when they roll over the print
button, but when I do the print button no longer works. I've tried
the Alert and Window components. I've also tried createTextField.
In all cases the message appears but then the print button no
longer responds to the mouse. Please, what's going on?
Alert has the potential to be modal and that would prevent
you from interacting with any UI while it was up. Or, since you
mentioned that it's in a rollover, I can't help but think that
you're throwing up this window as an defensible shield whenever
they try to click the button. Instead, make the button's
on(release) handler create an Alert window, and make the handler
that you pass to the show() method call your printing
