Hello There,

I am trying to add an Information Button on the skin, in which when I click on The Button (I'll Probably Use PNG Icon) The text Information should get open. The component should be there visible on the skin. Can anybody please explain to me how to add it. I want to know the entire procedure.

Thank You.

I am assuming by the title this will be the text for the tour and not change per node.
If this is the case you simply add a text box to your skin and add the text.
The text box gives you some formatting options, font size, weight and align.

Then under the positon select the centre anchor point and set position to 0px x 0px.

This will centre the text box in the skin.

Deselect visible which will hide it on output.
Add your button.
Give it the action, mouse click, visible, toggle visibility, then target the text box.

Please see this page:
There are a few video tutorials with regards to the skin editor which will help you learn your way around.

Once you have this up and working, then you can think to add a screen tint, so as the information box popups the pano darkens to highlight the text box. If you do a search in the forum for this I am sure you will find how to do this as I know this has been covered many times.
