States, Interactivity and lots of headache
Mar 14, 2013
first of all, i love the functionality of storyline, and the way you can add interactivity without beeing a programmer (though i have some programming skills, which makes it much easier).
But at the very moment im struggling with a nasty little problem:
The states seem to work nice with buttons and simple pictures as well.
I have to build an interactivity with complex shapes in png format.
Because of the non rectangular shape of the objects, i have to create custom hotspots for each part, which trigger the states of the object.
I want the object to change color as the user hovers over it. Also i want it to have a kind of "Visited" state.
So this should be no problem at all: I created the hotspots, which trigger the states:
Mouse hovered over triggers my custom hover state.
User clicks triggers my custom visited state.
Everthing works fine but one thing:
When i click, the object changes its state to visited, as it should do.
BUT, as soon as the Cursor leaves the Hotspot it changes back to normal!
This really drives me crazy, even haunted me in my dreams this night..am i missing something?
