Hello from LA and quick question

Postby moodooguru » 11 Jul 2012, 02:20

Hi fellow Shiva users,

I'm an appreneur and I recently met Nav from Game Scorpion, who has been very helpful in teaching me how to get started with ShiVa. (Thanks, Nav!) I've always wanted to make games since I was a kid so I'm glad to finally get started :)

In the HUD, one of my CONTAINERs keeps making itself visible underneath every new button... It's a little distracting. So if possible, I'd like to know how to make the container not visible, at least while I'm creating buttons that don't have to do with this particular container.

Thanks and I'm excited to be a part of the community :)

-Michael

In the "HUD Editor" there are some options you may want to play with:

General Tab:
Visible: Define if the component is visible or not at the instantiation.
Active: Define if the component is active or not at the instantiation.
ZOrder: Position of the HUD template related to the depth [ 0-255 ] (an order to put components in front of or behind each other)

Appearance Tab:
BackColor, ForeColor, and BorderColor: You can set the "Alpha" value on all of these to "0" and the container will "disappear".
