SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

Buttons are one of the most common interactive objects that you will use when authoring in SmartBuilder.

You can have multiple Buttons that are linked in a group, meaning that when you click on one Button, it will remain in the selected state and all other Buttons in that group will become unselected.  This is similar to the idea behind Radio Buttons.

If you want similar functionality, but with only one Button, you can declare whether you want the Button to toggle (stay selected when clicked, and unselected when clicked again) and whether you want it to start selected or not.

You can also change the appearance of the Button, either choosing from some preset styles, or importing different button states as graphics or SWFs.  Buttons have three states: Normal, On Rollover, and On Press.

Note: To change the appearance of the text, please see the section on Text Formatting.

You can also change the accent color for the default styles.  Some styles display this accent more prominently than others.

Additionally, you can add a sound to the button to provide an audio cue that the button has been clicked.
