Change state of object on base layer trigger

Sep 06, 2021

Hi all,

I am trying to add a trigger to layer 1 that says "Change state of (object on base layer) to (specific state) when the user clicks (object on base layer)." I can select the object for the Action, but not for the When. On the layer properties, "Prevent the user from clicking on the base layer" is not checked. There is nothing on layer 1 that covers the base layer objects. The base layer objects change to the hover state when hovered over from layer 1. What am I doing wrong?

You can, but then you also probably have to change the variable when the layer closes. A far simpler option is to put an invisible shape on the layer that falls over the base object, and attach the trigger to it. Use a filled shape, with no outline and a transparency set at least 95%.
