Lesson 26. Using a List Database > Adding Another Highlight

Adding Another Highlight

The interface and the scripts for choosing a location are all in place, but the interface for choosing a compass direction still doesn't work. You will fix that in the next several tasks. Your first job is to add a highlight for the compass interface to show the selected direction.

1.
Select the Blue Highlight sprite in channel 15. Copy it and then paste it into channel 16. Make sure it also spans frames 1through 18.

Channel 15 contains the rectangle used to highlight the location name. Channel 16 now contains a similar rectangle, which you can use to highlight the compass direction. The new sprite is also placed on the stage and selected.

Tip

When copying sprites, make sure to select the entire sprite by clicking somewhere other than on a keyframe. Clicking a keyframe in the sprite selects just the keyframe, not the entire sprite.

2.
On the stage, drag the new rectangle sprite to the N above the compass and resize the rectangle as necessary.

You don't need to set the ink or the color because it's already been set. Now you have two rectangles that you can use to highlight the two navigation elements on the stage.
