Problem with SL imagebutton syntaxis.

#1 Post by Alex » Sat Jul 23, 2011 5:14 pm

Hi, folks!
Could someone tell me the right syntaxis for "hover" and "idle" images of an imagebutton.
So, I have some images, declared in init block, and I want to use them for my imagebutton, but I need them to be scaled.
For now I have

Code: Select all

imagebutton:
    idle im.Scale( "my_image.bmp", 50, 50)
    hover im.Scale( "my_image.bmp", 50, 50)
    clicked my_action
It works, but it takes a filename as an argument for idle and hover. And it looks like <im.Scale> unable to use a displayable name (if I change "my_image.bmp" to "my_image", it says that unable to find file, named "my_image").

I've tried

Code: Select all

imagebutton:
    idle "my_image" xzoom 50 yzoom 50
    hover "my_image" xzoom 50 yzoom 50
    clicked my_action
but get an error "u'xzoom' is not a keyword argument or valid child for the imagebutton statement."

Also, tried

Code: Select all

    idle "my_image":
        xzoom 50 yzoom 50
but failed...((

Any thoughts, how could it be done, would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance...))

Imagebutton doesn't take ATL directly. But you can use a Transform here, to write similar code.

Code: Select all

imagebutton:
    idle Transform("my_image", xzoom=.5, yzoom=.5)
    hover Transform("my_image", xzoom=.5, yzoom=.5)
    clicked my_action
I'm assuming you meant 50% (.5), rather than 5000%.

That worked, thank you!
