Hi @eliaskhs,

You can create 2 states for the button in the middle.

  • One state will be enabled, allowing the button to be interacted with.

  • One state will be disabled, meaning that the button will not do anything when touched.

An example of this can be seen below.

Once you have the two states, drag and drop the disabled state, into the pointer down script of the question mark in the corner and activate it.

Don’t forget that as you have made it disabled, you will need to re-enable it once the menu is minimised again. This can be done much the same way, but adding the enabled state instead.

Hope this helps,

George

Hi @eliaskhs,

Please have a look at our step by step tutorial on ‘Using Math.random to increase re-scanabilty’.

More specifically chapter 17 and 18 explains how to insert a reference to the Subsymbol and then add an event once it is closed. You will then have to re enable the button once this event is called.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,

George
