Hi

I've created a tour in which I have added several pinned image labels floating over buildings. I want to allow the user to click on those labels and have information pop up about that building: this might be just text or it could be another image.

How might I do this?

HI,
You can draw a Polygon Hotspot over the image, then interact with the skin using Hotspot Proxy ID.

I'll check that out. Any way to prevent the pinned image from disappearing so I can make the polygon hotspot the same size as it?

Heck - my brain is melting!

I found your webinar video which is really useful:-
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uFgGM- ... meSoftware

But in my case, I want to tell a pinned image to be a 'hotspot' to make a different image appear centre screen. I followed the webinar, but this builds a visible button that you click to display the image. So, this lead me to your reply here that gives a step by step guide to make a polygon hotspot display a pop up image.

The problem with this is that it creates all the screen dimming and little 'x' in the top corner to close the image...and it introduces an image loading graphic. I don't really want any of that stuff: just a simple 'click polygon, see image. Click image, image disappears'.

I'm not sure what to delete or edit to unpick the component.

Are there any simple steps changes to your youtube webinar above that would help me out?

Sorry to be a pain.

Hi,
There is a pinned post above each forum called Useful Post Index.
This is to help find useful posts but this does not include all and welcome suggestions to add to the list.
But to use an image popup with a polygon hotspot please see this post: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=14304
