    Email Button


      How would I create a button that opens up the default email app. with the email address of the person in the "To" box in Catalyst?  In other programs you can put goto email in an action window, does it work the same in Catalyst?

          Catalyst doesn't have the behavior as a distinct interaction pattern. However, I was able to get the desired behavior by doing the following:

          Say you want clicking on a button to open up the default email client, and fill out the "to" address as me@me.com


          1. On the button, Add an "On Click" -> "Go To URL" transition

          2. In the URL space, enter: mailto:me@me.com


          Just replace the button and email address (italicized) to get the behavior you want.
