hiding and showing (sendtoback/bringtofront) a TEXT object in Presentation Mode

July 14, 2011 | 4:19 pm

Does anyone have a simple example of how to HIDE/SHOW (sendtoback/bringtofront) a simple "textbutton" object. I haven’t been able to get "thispatcher" to do it. It may be a syntax error. I’m using fpic to go back and forth between two screens. One screen the text button needs to be present and the other needs the text button hidden.

Thanks Jan…. I went back and looked at my "thispatcher" and compared it to yours and I had a syntax error (it was stupid). I’m embarrassed.
