Is there a way to use the polygon hotspot with a custom skin id? At the moment I don't see this function in Pano2VR

I try to use the polygon hotspot to show some information on click like in the image below and for that I'd have to create a custom hotspot inside the skin but I can't choose them for the polygon hotspots

If you want to connect polygon hotspots to the skin editor then please have a look at the Useful Posts Index page.

I read all the posts you wrote down but unfortunately they don’t cover my use case. I manage to e.g. open a popup on a polygon click or change color and border and also the example with the YouTube video is completely clear

What I’m trying to do is to define a skin for each polygon hotspot which is not a node change like here in the picture

So in one node I could have multiple polygon hotspots which loads this skin with the different buttons and different actions on the buttons

I tried to create the buttons linked with the proxy ID but they stay position absoluted where I set them in the skin and not where I place the polygon hotspot. On this screenshot the yellow information icon should always be inside the polygon hotspot and not moving around when I move around in the node

And additionally is there a way to style the polygon hotspot through javascript or css? I don’t see them inside the source code as like the point hotspots and in the Javascrtip API documentation I don't see a way to read out the polygon hotspot

Thank you very much
