  • For the people that want a Drop Down list in AMS4

    Import the page and try it out .... (see attached)

    The problem we have here: there is no 'OnMouseClick' action for the Page -
    otherwise, we could set it so that the list would HIDE again if the page was clicked.
    Additionally, the same problem exists for the edit field (even tho I requested Actions for it!!)
    so the only way to HIDE the list is to click the arrow again or choose an item in the list.

    Can we add MouseClick to Page Actions this late in the game or is that not a good idea??

    Can anyone improve this? Would be great if you could!

    (I just found out you can't attach PG4 files to a post .. can you add that please? I had to change the extension to zip, so you'll have to change it back to PG4 to use it)

    You could maybe try hiding it when the mouse leaves the list box object...that might be annoying, but it's worth a shot.

      BTW, it's pretty nice even as is. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

          You could try using a number of thin Hyperlink Objects around the ListBox that will hide it when the mouse passes over it.

            Or for that matter, you could put a bunch of hotspot objects on the page background, and use their On Mouse Click events.

            (You could use one big hotspot object, but the fact that events cascade through objects would require you to set up semaphores with variables and IF/END IF actions, to keep the actions on the Hotspot Object from happening if the user clicked on one of the other objects on the page...kind of a PITA that way though.)
