Hi, I have a question about reveal buttons. After the user clicks a button (button A) to enlarge the graphic Button B), is it possible to have a nested button within Button B that will reveal more content leaving Button B where it is? Basically nesting buttons.
What is your final format?
With Interactive PDFs you can have a word or words or an image (such as a button shape) as a document hyperlink to say another page in the document, or to an external website.
Some devices, for example, iPads, don't have rollover capability – only click – you should avoid multi-action buttons like On Click, On Roll Over, etc. Multi-state object (MSO) don’t work at all in an Interactive PDFs.
Thank you for answering. I have the basics of making a button, and then revealing a graphic (which as i understand it, is easiest if you also make it a button) after the first button is clicked on. I'm curious, if it is possible to have ANOTHER button on the revealed art... Like a "close X" or yet another graphic reveal. Sorry if this makes no sense. I've made it clear to the client that the document is to be viewed on Lap or desktop, as I understand the limitations in the PDF interactivity.
I've Figured this out. Short answer is, yes, I can do nested buttons!
How did you figure this out? Can you go through the steps?
Well, it's been over a year, so I'm not sure if anythng has changed. If I remember, the trickiest part was making sure all the buttons and states do the correct thing. In the original question, I wanted to know if i could reveal a layer that also had it's own buttons on it that controlled that layer, such as reveal another layer on top of it. The answer was yes, and all you have to do is create the new buttons on the revealed layer, and make sure the states are set correctly. Some tiral and error to make sure they worked correctly was needed.
Sorry I can't give you a more detailed breakdown, as your case may be different, and I honestly don't rmember the specifics, but that is the gist of what I did.
