Change state of multiple objects

HI,

I'm trying to create an activity (Wheel of Fortune) where on the click of a buton - the corresponding letters will be revealed.  I essentially have my base layer with the words and shapes above to hide the letters.  At the bottom I have buttons (one for each letter of the alphabet).  What I would like to do is that when I click a letter, all of the shapes hiding those letters will hide.  I can get it to work on one letter but if there are multiple instances of a letter, only the first one is revealed.  I've tried to group the shapes but the name of the group does not appear in my "change state of" menu.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Tom

Hi El,

I'm not sure how Tom managed to accomplish this but I had created a demo version of what he was trying to achieve and I was about to post it here when I saw his update to say that he had already found the solution. 

In my example, which is attached, I used states and triggers. I created a 'normal' state of a box with a '?' for each letter the user has to guess and then created a 'correct' state of the same boxes that displays the correct letter. I then added a trigger to change the state of each '?' box to 'correct' when the user clicks on the corresponding letter from the bank of 26 at the bottom - to reveal duplicate letters (in my example 'E' and 'T') I just used the same trigger on both '?' boxes.

I hope this helps but please feel free to post back if you have any further questions
