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.

The Hotspot is an object that is typically used in conjunction with graphics.  It is very similar to a Button object, but often is invisible to the learner to simulate them clicking on the image below the Hotspot.  However, the appearance of Hotspots can be configured to allow for a multitude of different interaction styles.

You can change the fill color and transparency individually for each of the three interaction states: Initial, Rollover, and Clicked.

You can give the Hotspot a border, which will change to be the current state's Color property, but will always be completely opaque, regardless of the state's Transparency property.

You can make the Hotspot stay in its clicked state when selected by setting the Toggle property.  This can be useful if you want the learner to be able to select, or highlight, aspects of the learning interaction.
