    Currently, there are only 4 states in the button wizard – Up, Over, Down, and Disabled. If we want to have a button change to show that it’s been clicked already, we end up having to create a second button and do a show/hide on it. It would be much easier to add a 5th state of “Visited” that could be a different color, have a graphic with a check mark, etc.

    This was already placed on the radar of our development team and should be included in a release sooner rather than later 🙂

    As of now , this is still not a feature included in Lectora? correct? I have developed a work around that utilizes pop-ups as a method to keep the variable parameters in the same page. The biggest hurdle to this problem using variables available in lectora is that if you navigate to a separate page and then navigate back, everything gets reset from the beginning (using timed intervals to ping for variable value changes is the only way to achieve “visited state” within a page, but these timed intervals get reset once you leave the page and come back). Using the pop-up as a work around effectively keeps you in the same page and therefore the variables do not reset and you achieve the “visited state” on a button. Wish there was a way for me to post the course so you could evaluate and see how it functions 🙁

    Will attach the html file. Maybe you can get it running 🙂

    Are you using IF statements on the variables? One better solution may be to use custom variables and set them to a specific value so that onPageShow, it’s looking to see if the variable is “visited”.

    onPageShow <the action you’re using to change the state> IF This page is complete.

    I’m not a fan of delays, as it could impact UX if the button is loaded initially in one state, then suddenly is in a different state moments later.

    Also, when posting samples, the zipped development file needs to be uploaded so we can see how you configured actions.
