Change the state of an object once custom button states are visited, when a slide includes layers!

Dec 21, 2021

I have a project that has a base layer and 6 slide layers. On the base layer are 6 custom buttons and each one displays a layer when clicked; their state also changes to visited once clicked. On that base layer, I also have a Next button, with the initial state of hidden. Once all the custom buttons are visited, I want the Next button's state to be normal.  

I have added a trigger to the next button to change it's state to normal once all the custom buttons have been clicked, but it's not! I'm assuming this is being hampered by the layers displaying - please help?

Hi, Liz.

Thank you for reaching out!

You should be able to change the state of the Next button to normal, even if you have layers. Are you using a custom Next button or the player's default one?

Here are the triggers I'd suggest:

  • Change state of Next button to Hidden when the timeline starts on this slide
  • Change state of Next button to Normal when the state of all the buttons is Visited

 If your scenario is different from what I'm describing above, I'm happy to look at your .story file to offer specific suggestions.

Hi Maria,

Am using a custom next button, and have already tried the triggers you've suggested... wondering if I have a 'bug' in my project! I'm going to delete all the trigers and reinstate to see if that fixes it, if not will take you up on your offer to have a look - thanks!
