Hello

I have created a button called "HELP" in a document which I want to activate a Text Object.   The Text Object will appear to the far right of my document page and list the help information of the page

I need to know what actions I need to apply to my HELP button and then how to close down the text object when users have finished reading it

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Helen

Hi Helen,

Check the document attached on how to use a variable to show/hide an object from a button using actions.

Hope that helps.

Re: Help Page

An alternative way which avoids variables is to load a table for each object you want to control ...

HelpBox:

Load * inline [

TX01

0

1];

... then create your text box with a conditional show (TX01=1 for my example).  Your button then just needs an action which toggle selects on the field TX01 for value 1.  You can also toggle the button text like this ...

=If(TX01=1,'Hide Help','Show Help')
