Chapter 7. Adding Interactivity > Adding and Using Buttons

Adding and Using Buttons

Buttons are a more “visible” form of interactivity than click boxes. They are also a classic form of navigation. Users instinctively understand the purpose of a button. In Captivate, buttons are used for a number of activities ranging from navigation to opening URLs and sending email.

Captivate actually employs two types of buttons. The first type (discussed in Chapter 2, “Creating Captivate Movies”) is used to create the elements of a movie playback controller. In this instance, there are only two possible states for the button: Up and Down. The second type of button, which is the subject of this section of this chapter, is the button as an object. In this case, the button has the traditional states of Up, Over, and Down to indicate it is live.
