If you want to display a static image, use Action.LoadAPicture in the hotspot that is clicked on. See attached pdf (shows example)

If you want to show and hide an animated gif... I'll need to work on that one. Nothing I've tried has worked so far.

The following routines also work to show and hide hotspots as an alternative to using the LoadAPicture. You will need to add them to your Procedures area.

Code: Select all
Function HideHotspot(hotnum)

  Hotspot(hotnum).Enabled = False
  Hotspot(hotnum).Move 100000*15,100000*15

End Function 'HideHotspot

Code: Select all
Function ShowHotspot(hotnum, xval, yval)

  Hotspot(hotnum).Enabled = True
  Hotspot(hotnum).Move xval*15,yval*15

End Function 'ShowHotspot

Let me know if you have more questions!
