CSS + Timeline transition effect


Hello Buddies, I making two group of navigation. In group A, at the top right corner of my scene, I assigned <a tag with id to them (( like: <a id=“buttonProduct” Product</a )), in order to trigger hover color transition effect by CSS. In group B, the left side of my scene, I already assigned color transition to them triggered by waypoints & timeline, but I also like to do the same hover effect like group A by CSS. I find it is not working, maybe inference?? Can I do it with CSS or only to do it with extra timeline for that hover effect or …?? Thanks. Dokinse 03 problem.hype.zip (59.2 KB)



The following worked for (left side) group B, “#buttonL1” (as referenced in the CSS):

In the innerHTML of #buttonL1:

1 - Removed the anchor tag and replaced it with a span tag. The other “buttons” in group B did not have an anchor tag; not sure why you used it except as a ID “holder” for test purposes?

span:hover {
    color: red;

<span>Meal Collection</span>

2 - Removed the styles for “#buttonL1” in the HeadHTML.

“Meal Collection” now changes color with the page scrolling and will change color with a mouse hover.

EDIT: Additional Note

Have had a bit more time to experiment and… using Hype’s “Button Controls” (“Edit” Menu) for a given element (Normal, Hover & Pressed states) worked just as well as using the inline CSS I demo’d above.


Thanks Jim, I tried, it’s work! btw, would I instead that style “”" span: hover{ color: red;} “”" inside the head instead of the innerHTML of the text element?Dokinse 03 problem try.hype.zip (59.2 KB)


If I understand You correctly You would like to put the CSS styling back in the “Head HTML” instead of the element’s “innerHTML”?

Possibly that might work using techniques I am not aware of - but we are competing with the settings in Hype’s Timeline for what the styling should be - which seemed to be overriding the internal style sheet (in the “Head HTML” in your original project). The easiest way I know to countermand this situation is to increase the level of specificity by placing the CSS styling inline with the element (i.e. “innerHTML” in the Hype universe).

Thanks, yes, I think sometime it is handy ^^
