Make hidden object slightly transparent?

  1. 2 years ago

    Hi there.

    I was wondering if it's possible to make a hidden object transparent rather than completely hidden? I have 'show' and 'hide' attached to these objects, but would like some indication of them being there.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello Brad I believe you can use "opacity" for that.

  3. Hi Angelo,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I meant for an object that is already 'hidden' (it appears when actioned to by a button) - the reason is that I have hidden text that will appear when a button is clicked but a few readers are skipping to the next page without reading it properly - I just want some faint indication that the text is there waiting to be activated.

    I realise that can do it with a duplicate layer but to save some time I was hoping I could make it faintly transparent instead of completely hidden.

    Hello Bred,
    instead of marking the text "Hidden", set the opacity to 0.3 or something similar. Then, instead of using a "Show object" action to show it, use action "Set Object CSS Style", using property=opacity and value=1

  5. Thanks Angelo, will try that :)
