Show/hide window at same time as other images

#1 Post by SuperbowserX » Thu Aug 23, 2018 6:30 pm

It's possible to do concurrent showing/hiding of images with this:

Code: Select all

show image one
show image two
with fade

hide image one
hide image two
with fade
However, with the textbox, you have to do

Code: Select all

window show fade
or

Code: Select all

window hide fade
to show/hide the textbox.

Is there anyway the textbox can be shown/hidden in parallel with other images?

The scene statement should dissolve the window in with other images at the same time.

Not so sure about hiding it.

Scene statement isn't what I'm looking for because I have other images I want to show.

Never mind. Found an alternate method that worked just fine
