I've just begun using Demoshield and already I have a problem.
I'm trying to create buttons with mouse-over and mouse-down actions that will replace the bitmap.
So, I imported 3 bitmaps - 1 idle state, 1 mouse-over and 1 mouse down. I added an action to each state - set content, with the correct scene name, object name, resource name (the bitmap, that is).
But when I try to test the demo the button doesn't change states at all.
I tried it several times with quick buttons and bitmap buttons. It didn't work.
What am I doing wrong?

I am using Demoshield 6.7 on a windows 2000 machine.

Michael,

I think the best way to achieve what you want is to create custom Quick Buttons. The advantage to this is that you incorporate these into your Quick Button Library and you can reuse your buttons in other demos.

We have a Knowledge Base article on how to do this. It's Q105131 (http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?articleid=Q105131) and it walks you through all the steps.

I hope this helps.
