What is the best way to add a Toggle to show and hide an object on a slide ?

Oct 30, 2015

I am working on a software simulation. One of the screens has a calendar icon that when you click on the icon, a pop-up calendar appears. When you click on the calendar icon again, the calendar disappears off the slide.

Hello Mark, thanks for sharing. I'd recommend putting the image of the calendar on it's own Slide Layer (the section for those is located in the bottom right), rather than on the Base Layer - where it is now.

Then add a hotspot over the icon on the Base Layer and set its Trigger to "Show layer Calendar When the user clicks."

On the Calendar layer, put another hotspot over the icon there and set its Trigger to "Hide layer This layer When the user clicks."

I've attached a quick mockup using the story file you posted so you can see how this method works. I hope this is what you were looking for.
