Button events (Andrew) - 9/20/2006 8:36 AM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: Andrew

    When I edit a copy of the button template, I have these events: IsKeyboard, 
    IsChecked and !IsEnabled.
    Where are the IsMouseOver and IsPressed events? I saw them in some video 
    tutorials so I know that they must be there.
    I'm using ID Sep.06.
    Thanks!

    While you are in template editing mode:
    1. Bring up the "Timeline Properites" palette (click 
    View->TimelineProperties)
    2. Right click a tab in the timeline (such as IsChecked) and select 
    "Duplicate" to add a new tab to the timeline.
    3. Within the timeline properties palette, type over the combo box 
    containing "IsChecked" and type "IsMouseOver" and set the value to true if 
    desired. Notice the tab name changes.
    
    You can also peek at the help file for adding triggers outside of template 
    editing mode. This will help you see a list of events available upon the 
    selected object. See section "Add or remove a Trigger" under Animation.
    
    Hope this helps.
    
    Thanks,

    It really depends on the theme that you are editing the template in. When
    you edit a copy of the template, you are creating (as the name suggests) a
    copy of the template in the current theme. So it could well be possible that
    they theme changed and hence you don't see them any more. If you want, you
    can always add these triggers to change the way a button behaves when one of
    these properties is true.

    Thanks,
