Hi there you all,
I have a problem. I am trying to make or better i need a button that has a hotspot wich on hover reveals a layer. Looked all over for it.
Can anybody help or has an idea how to make one of these. I have tryed a rollover image but reveals itself everywhere you go with the mouse. And because i need three buttons, a rolover image on top of eachather does not work. Do i need a Widget? If so, wich?
I need a hover button that only reveals a layer (the whole page) when on the hotspot. Must be simpel.
Could you please specify your intention in simple words?
No real idea, what you want to achieve.
If you want your screen overlayed (covered) by a colour or an image, when you rollover a button, this is doable.
So please tell us exactly, what you want to achieve.
Hi Günter, i thought i was clear but apparently not. I'll try to explain it better with some screenshots. The normal state is 1st picture, after hovering over the button it reveals a layer that also has text like on first picture. Is this clear enough. Can you help?
This is possible in different ways, but not if the image should span over the whole browser window.
Or do you think of a backgroud image and a text element showing up on this image, when hovering a button?
Yes, i know. With a image rollover your there but i need it to be like this.
maybe i have to compromise and make it a smaller image. But it wouldn't look the same. This is classy and as you can see for a classy client.
This doesn't mean i am giving up on it guys. If HTML can do this (programming) why can't MUSE do this. I'll buy the Widget if necessary.
I still didn`t get it. And no, a new thread will not solve your request faster (thanks Günter Heißenbüttel).
Could you reduce your request to two screenshots – one for how the button should look like and one what appears after that button is clicked? Backgroung images are not necessary, I guess. Could be a backgroundcolor only. That might help.
The button is a logo. The two screenshot are already given. On click you go to another page then the pop up from the button.
I am out here.
I don‘t like to be a lemon squeezer, trying to press out the informations, which are necessary to help.
Same to me, sorry. From the screenshots above I didn`t get what you want to achieve. What is a hotspot?
On hover or rollover won't do anything on touch screen devices because they have no mouse. The most user friendly way to trigger an event is with onClick or Tap.
Maybe a Lightbox widget would do what you need?
It's not that difficult to understand. When you are on the button (hover not click) you see pic 2 hopfully with text as in pic 1. There will be three buttons and it should only show the pic when on the button, not on the page as in a rollover image. I don't know Muse well enough to solve this myself.
I repeat. Hover won't work on touch screen devices.
well what does work than? There must be something that makes this happen. If you can think of it you can make it. Isn't that the word?
Do you own a mobile device? Does it have a mouse connected to it? Of course not.
Hover and Mouseover triggers only work on devices that have a mouse. All other users will see nothing.
that makes my idea inapplicable?
a simple yes will do. It's a pity that some ideas just won't work. Although you would wich they would.There is work ahead for programmers.
onClick event triggers work on all devices. Muse is EOL which means this software is no longer being developed. Adobe will officially end Muse support in March 2021.
Because of tablets and smartphones, hover states have fallen out of favor, but they aren't completely gone for some interactions. There are still plenty of sites that use rollover actions for buttons. You want to make sure it doesn't break the functionality, locking out people, who might be trying to view your site with a tablet or mobile (remember, on a tablet, your finger is the cursor, and it doesn't know that your finger is hovering over a button). Most of the time, you want both rollover and click to be active. Rollover for desktop experience, to give the user some feedback, letting them know that the button is active.
In your case it's more of an experience effect, where the position of your cursor dictates what is viewable. I get that. It's nice, but the button still needs to be clickable for tablets, or your users won't be able to interact with your site.
But if i understand you corectly. It's because OS on devises are not operating on the same level. Don;t programmes correct this shit automaticly. If not. Why isn't anybloodybody doing anything about it.
exscuse my language.
oh my god HTML. No way. A am by nature a designer!
Muse is hereby a faleure.
Thanks for the insight. Completely understand why they abort. So will i. Pity though what else will a designer do now. Fail fail fail.
