Help menu

Hi,

I want to create a text box called "Help" or "Data source". I want this text box to be visible. That's easy.

However, by clicking this text box, I want a menu to be opened explaining the data sources (i.e. showing a text like "The source of this informatrion is coming from database XXX").

I want to do the same with another button or text box called "version". Then, by clicking this "version" I want a text to be displayed showing "The latest version is v2, updated on May 7th".

Any ideas ?

Thanks,

dani

Hi,

Easiest Way is to set a variable within the action of the button.

the create your text box (ensure its layered high) and set the conditional format to show when the variable is true
