Hi. Need some help here. I would like to add interaction (inside blocs) using an animation previous made on HYPE. I’d like to track that animation as a button inside blocs, so it would be easy to toggle visibility on other blocs by clicking it. Is there an simple way to do that? Thanks, M
Can you point us to the API for the Blocs button?
Hi Max, thanks for your response. Not sure I did understand your question. I am using Blocs3 and HypePro4.
I did a very simple animation using Hype. And export it to use inside a Blocs 3 site. Works perfectly. But you I cannot connect interactions inside Blocs 3.
Almost anything inside Blocs can be interactive _by default _(texts, images, icons can be tracked as buttons and change behaviours (like toggle visibility, for example) of any other bloc in the page. That is very simple to do, with a Bloc ID.
Except Hype animations. When you import a Hype animation inside blocs, all the interactive components/codes has to be part of the original Hype animation. Almost all the behaviours have to be coded at the animation level, except scroll control for the timeline, and other parameters that you can change inside Blocs3.
Even if its simple create events inside Hype to control timelines of the animation itself, using mouse events, it seems more complex to control other stuff inside the Blocs site, not the animation itself, by clicking the animation.
To clarify, you are looking to control Blocs-made content from a Hype animation on the page?
document.getElementById("myblocsid").style.display = "none";
In this case, it will hide the element given the correct "myblocsid".
I'm not sure if Blocs has an API to control its app's further interactions given an ID (or what the consequences of changing the DOM underneath Blocs might be; Hype's runtime doesn't like this type of thing). But I don't think there would be any problems running this type of code from within the context of a Hype document.
