[SOLVED]Toggle checkbox imagebutton?

#1 Post by eath » Wed Jul 15, 2020 11:32 am

This should be a very simple thing, but I'm brand new to Ren'py and can't find it…

Here's what I want to do in pseudocode:

Code: Select all

show current imagebutton state (on or off)

imagebutton:
    if x==True: imagebutton's image = "on.jpg"
    if x==False: imagebutton's image = "off.jpg"
    onclick: toggle x

replace/show current imagebutton state (on or off)
I feel like I'm ignorant of a very basic checkbox command that takes care of this in a simple way. I've spent hours looking up imagebuttons and my code just keeps getting more and more convoluted. Help! please!

If it matters, this will be a layer on top of another image.

Thanks!

You can use the selected_hover and selected_idle states for this

Well, this seems to do what I want it to do... but I am still willing to learn a better way of doing things!

Code: Select all

default buttonvalue = False

screen alternatebuttonswitch():
    modal True
    imagebutton:
        focus_mask True
        if buttonvalue == True: 
            idle "on.png"
        else:
            idle "off.png"
        action [ToggleVariable("buttonvalue", True, False)]

show screen alternatebuttonswitch
If anyone can tell me how to add a quick "button shifted downwards" image during a tap, I'd be grateful!

selected_idle and selected_hover do what you want.

You can use them like this.

Code: Select all

screen alternatebuttonswitch():
    modal True
    imagebutton:
        focus_mask True
        idle "off.png"
        hover "off.png"
        selected_idle "on.png"
        selected_hover "on.png"
        action NullAction()
