1043 - Can I use the Active If field so a button displays only if the contents of a specific Display Icon is shown?

by - Joseph Ganci

I want a button to become active on screen only when the contents of an certain display icon is shown. The button is set to perpetual. Is it possible to utilise the 'active if' feature for the button and one of the IconID variables in some way to enable this?
Or is there any other way?

Yes, set the Active If field to

DisplayX@"name of icon" > -1

That should do it.
