Image button over a Label
« on: February 03, 2010, 09:44:31 PM »
I want to put a button over a label- its the label that shows feed/in or feed/rev and I want to overlay it with the button that toggles it.

Ive tried and it looks like a label overpowers the image button. I made the image button a transparent png button

Anyone know how to do this?

Hi Ron,

if you are using MachScreen, try the following. Place your button, hold down the "ctrl" key and select the label, hit mouse right button and use swap layer from the context menu.

I tried it, and it crashed the program. I got to the point of having the dialog open showing both elements, side by side.  I made a couple corrections of the sizes to make them exactly the same , then when I hit the Swap button it crashed, with the 'send error report" dialog.

This was with the latest version, 1.37a

I tried it a second time, and it did not crash, and it now works as I want, I  can click the label and it changes state.

thanks, MachScreen is a gem.

Hi Ron,

the data in the swap dialog are not meant to be editable,  I made the fields new disabled. I think I found the crash reason and corrected that. The new version V1.37.c can be downloaded.
