Buttons to show sets of nodes according to tag values

Post by BrideValley » Thu Dec 14, 2017 8:15 pm

Hi
I'm using Pano2VR Pro and so far have only used it to publish tours to Google Street View. As a tool for this it is excellent!
However, I'd like to start building bespoke presentations to host on my server so that I can add features that are not available in the GSV environment. I am keen to learn how to build skins in Pano2VR.
As a starting project I have built a tour with 27 nodes, all located with lat/long data so they appear on a simple map (a Google one as it happens). The nodes have each been allocated one of four tags and I have created a simple button for each tag plus a 5th button to act as a "show all". I have scoured the forum and the GG documentation for several hours but cannot find anything that helps me set the buttons up to do what I would like. Does anyone have a link to such a tutorial? I don't wish to have thumbnails on screen or a drop-down menu but would like to display the node title for each panorama when it's on screen. I'm sure this must be possible, but again I can't find what I'm looking for.
If anyone can send links to existing tutorials or documentation I would be very grateful. I'm new to Pano2VR skin development so please try and avoid anything that assumes very much prior knowledge. . .
Many thanks
Simon

Hello,
Did not understand very well what so you want to do with these buttons...
You have used tags to make 4 thumbnail/dropdown menus and you wish to display these menus using these 4 (+1) buttons?
This can probably done with simple show/hide actions, but please clarify/show the project :)

Hi Guys,
You just need to set a tag to the Map element.
So as an example if you have nodes tagged with, park, playground and carpark.

To show the locations in the Map element you would have four buttons.

Show All: mouse click, set value, value: "leave blank", target: Map1
Show Park only panos: mouse click, set value, value: park, target: Map1
Show Playground only panos: mouse click, set value, value: playground, target: Map1
Show Car Park only panos: mouse click, set value, value: carpark, target: Map1

You can also have custom map pins and even popup preview images on mouse hover.
