Changing multiple states using a single button

Hi,

I am trying out storyline. The way I created the stage is having only 1 button and 1 image.Then I created 5 different states for the image. I would like the user to click the button (NEXT) to go to the next image (state). I've created a trigger that shows the next state but I can't let the user go to the third state using the same button (NEXT).

Is there a way I can do this or is this a limitation? Also, If I created 5 layers, can 1 button go to all the layers?

Hello Gian,

You can use the same button.. but you have to use variables that will count the clicks.

You can create a number variable called "ClickCounter" and set the default value to 0

Then.. on the "button" - add a trigger to "add value of 1" when user clicks.

You can then reference this as a condition for when to change the state.. it can go something like..

Change state of object to _____when user clicks button on the condtion that "ClickCounter" = 1,2,3,4,5

You are essentially.. pairing the click count to a state..

Having said that.. I don't recommend this.

It's much easier to just put the states in different layers and duplicate the button (that will make it look like you are using the same button).
