Is it possible to have a short page drop down from the top when a button is clicked?
I want my Help page to always be available on each page so I was thinking if I did a page about a third the height of the normal page that dropped down when the Help button was clicked then disappeared back to the top until called for again (maybe with a button) would be kinda fun.
But I have no idea how to begin. Maybe a shape? I created a long box the width of my title. I have it initially hidden. Then when the user clicks the Help button, it is set to show my HelpBoxGroup. But it doesn’t work. I think I need something to move it forward. I tried another action with Move but I don’t get the option to move it forward. I did pick Sudden In under the Move To pencil. Still doesn’t work. My logic says this should work.
I’m in Local mode for testing from my hard drive in Chrome. Maybe when I publish to the server?
I finally solved my problem! I created a shape about 1/3 the height of the screen and about a half-inch in from both sides and made the background a different color so it would be easy to read but not blend in with the contents. I put the contents in it (pictures of buttons and their functions, who to call for help – etc) and put everything into a group. I had my narrow box hooked just at the edge of the frame. I set it to Initially Hidden and Always on Top (this has to be the last thing you do or you are constantly unchecking this part until you get completely done).
The Help button action was told onClick to Display the Group_Help. Another action again onClick to Move the HelpBox (my name for this group) to the X and Y coordinates I needed to be located in and to come in Sudden. The HelpBox has a close button of its own which is set to hide the Group. And it works!
I like the idea of this drop-down box for several functions.
