Code for making TEXT appear on the frame~

Postby mercedes » Thu Aug 07, 2008 7:50 pm

Is there a code for making TEXT appear on the frame after clicking a hotspot..somewhere else though..in another hotspot place perhaps not the same one you click...~

One way would be to make a small image with the txt on the image and use variables to show/hide it :)

Hi there..:)..Its kinda what I've done with the first hotspot..it is an image of a letter..and I wanted text to appear after they hit the image of the letter..

Do you know of a place... or a way to make a text image..like gif image..but it appear nice..See its kinda what ive done..but the letter looks really bad..hard to do letters as gifs..I want the letter to appear transparent..and its got to be small..the ones ive seen so far on sites..are big..Would be nice if they appear the size of say.. 14font..

Shame we can't make the text that appears on the frame.Show/Hide with variables..


Thanks for Response:)

Hey..actually no, it looks like the one that says "Hi there'..but only the letter..so say the H looks like that one.

The one you point out is perfect.. when i zoom in its perfect.... the hello there..thats what i want ..

yes I used Paint Shop Pro to make it with but I'm sure other paint programs should be able to do it.
You can get it for $40.00

I found another way to do this and something else...here goes):

If you want text to appear on the screen when u input a password into a textbox, you can write this code..

Code: Select all
If TextBoxObject(i).Text <> "Pass_Word" Then
Text(i).Caption= "Did you forget your password?"
Text(i).Forecolor = RGB (255,255,255)
Else
Action.GoToFrame "Frame_Name"
End If


This is the easy way..the only thing is..you have to have a small image somewhere...like a dot else where on the screen. Make it the color of the backround if you want so noone will see it..and change the color in script..[Wherever you put dot..is where text will appear] ..I was simulating a PC and i wanted the text to appear on the screen not at the bottom..You can do this for a hotspot as well..
I can't beleive how much grief I went through for hangman...all those images I made......making them all transparent ..I have 26 letters or more on my Pc right now..:roll:........lol
