Question about creating custom menu screen
on Jun 21, 2007 at 5:50:14 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a question that I hope someone can help me with.

I would like to create a menu with multiple buttons (I am just using text) and when a button is scrolled to (but not activated yet) a new image will appear on the background. I would like a different background image for each button.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,
Kurt

yep it can be done using multiple menus and the button auto activating feature of Encore... you would need a menu (with alternative background image) for each button, if you have a lot of text buttons then this can become confusing for you trying to remember what goes to which,etc,etc,etc

Thanks. I think I understand what you are saying. I will set buttons to auto activate if I want the user to go to the next button with a new background image (a new menu that is) and I will set the button at the current menu page to go to a specific chapter point when highlighted.

yep, you got it.... it would be helpful for you to get the old fashioned pencil+paper out, as this will make it easier for you to link everything up (as you will have a visual record)..

Thanks. I got it working. It's a nice change for a video menu. Like you said, keeping track of each menu and what is going on is key.

Thanks again for your help.

Kurt
