Pop Up Message on a Trigger/State

Hello,

I have a client who wants a message to appear on an button that tells the learner it is not active until all the tabs are visited. I can get the state of the this button to be disabled until all the variables I have choosen are visited, but I am not sure how to get a message to come up telling them this if they click on the button before it is actually active. That means then that when the button eventaully is active, that message would not appear.

You could overlay a transparent shape over the button, then trigger the transparent shape to show the message when clicked. Then, when the "real" button is activated, you can hide the transparent shape. This is probably an extremely inelegant solution--I look forward to seeing what someone more experienced has to say!

Cheryl, actually that's a rather elegant solution!

Julie, see attached a quick example based on Cheryl's description.
