Component on intro slide only

Post by formbysurveys » Tue Aug 29, 2017 5:13 pm

I'm trying to have a skin component only appear on my 1st pano - I think the best way is via a tag. Make the component not visible and then set a variable to show the component when the pano has a specific tag (which only applies to that Pano - Is this the right train of thought and can someone point me in the direction of how to achieve it please?
Regards

Andy

Hi Andy,
Using tags is the best way, you can then be sure that the elements will only show in that node.

Great stuff, I've worked that one out using the visible logic block.

What would I need to do if I wanted the component to appear after say 2 seconds and then disappear after 4 seconds. I appreciate I need a timer somewhere but I already have a timer on the component as its an animated hotspot

Hi Any,
You can have as many timers as you wish in a skin.

Ok, thanks Martin, so I'm thinking I have to make my animated image (image, text and timer all inside a parent container called Mouse_Timer) a child of the parent timer.

Here is what I've done so far, but I'm struggling with the fine tuning:
  • Given my 1st pano a tag of "Initial"
  • Created a canvas variable called MouseOn and set it as a True/False type with an initial value of false (as I want it hidden) and set the visibility option to off under Appearance.
  • Inserted a timer (called Mouse Container Timer) with a 6 sec timeout, type:Loaded and repeat once.
  • Then added 2 actions to the timer as below:-

  • Then set the following logic block on the Visible element of the Mouse_Timer Container.

  • Then put the Mouse_Timer container as a child of the Mouse Container Timer.

Here is what I think that should achieve...

The mouse timer container should only appear on any panos with an "Initial" tag and show the container at the loading stage of the pano for 6 seconds upon which it disappears (for good, unless the pano is reloaded).

... except is doesn't... I don't see the container at all. My logic must be flawed! Anyone got any pointers to what I'm doing wrong?
