Hi There,

I have an object with lots of hotspots on it. As the mouse hovers over a hotspot the title text is show. So far, so good. However, when there are other hotspots near the one being hovered over, the hotspot circle image is staying over the top of the text box being shown, obscuring the text.

Is there a way of hiding all the other hotspot 'spots' while a text box is being shown, or, just ensuring all text boxes are above all the other spots?


p.s. I tried adding an action to hide all hotspot images on mouseover and reveal again on mouseleave but that didn't work as it only affected the hotspot I was on. Is there a way to make hovering over one spot affect all the others?

I managed to fix it by adding

hs+='z-index: 1000;';

to the skin.js file where the text box code is.

Hi rojharris,
Glad you got it sorted but in V4 out later you will be able to set this in the skin editor.
For now its add it manually.
