  • Buttons to disappear/appear

    I am a newbie with AMS 4 and I am trying to create the following.

    Page 1 has a button (CONDITIONS) is visible when the page first opens. The user clicks on this and it takes them to Page 2 which contains "Conditions of Use".

    Page 2 has a button (ACCEPT) they can click to accept the conditions of use. I would like to record this acceptance in the registry with a "CURRENT_USER" key. By clicking on ACCEPT, they are returned to Page 1, where CONDITIONS is now hidden (hidden when they clicked ACCEPT). (Page 2 also has an exit button which closes the application without recording anything)

    By clicking on CONDITIONS, they have also made visible on Page 1 a second button (RUN).

    When Autorun next opens, I would like it to check the registry, and if ACCEPT was clicked before, only RUN is to be visible on Page 1.

    If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Nicvan

    Here's what yu do:

    [/quote]<font color=red>Page 1
    </font color=red>
    Have yur Text Objects - Conditions and Run

    In the page OnInitialize event, set an action to check the registry:
    <font color=green>%RegData% = Registry.GetValueData ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents", "AMS4")</font color=green> - set the error on here to 'none'

    In the page OnShow event set something like the following:
    <font color=blue>IF (%RegData% = accept)</font color=blue>
    <font color=green>Page.HideObject ("Text1")
    Page.ShowObject ("Text2")</font color=green>
    <font color=blue>ELSE</font color=blue>
    <font color=green>Page.HideObject ("Text2")
    Page.ShowObject ("Text1")</font color=green>
    <font color=blue>END IF</font color=blue>

    <font color=red>
    Page 2
    </font color=red>
    Set out yur conditions and Text Objects Accept and Exit

    In the OnClick event for Accept, set the following actions:
    <font color=green>Registry.SetValue ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents", "AMS4", "accept")
    Page.Jump ("Page 1")</font color=green>

    In the OnClick event for Exit, set the following action:
    <font color=green>Application.Exit</font color=green>

    [/quote]Of course, you should adjust the reg Key to something more suitable [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

            As an after thought, yu may want to consider using something like %LANUser% to get the currently logged in user and have reg entries for each user. Check the info on this in the helpfile tho. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
