I'm not really understanding what you mean. If you speak a language other than english, please say it in your language and I'll translate.

Make the object you want hidden.....let's call it "hider". Set visibility to no, under the relation tab. Apply and ok.

 

Make a second object. Call it button.

Under the general tab, under object type, hit change. Hit the dropdown, choose object controller. Target object name = hider.

Apply and ok.

 

Now clicking button should toggle hider. Hider is hidden on startup.

I am sorry....I left something out. Amendments in bold.

 

Make the object you want hidden.....let's call it hider. Set visibility to no, under the relation tab. Also set popup to toggle, under relation tab. Apply and ok.

 

Make a second object. Call it button.

Under the general tab, under object type, hit change. Hit the dropdown, choose object controller. Open/toggle the popup object is chosen. Target object name = hider.

Apply and ok.

 

Now clicking button should toggle hider. Hider is hidden on startup.

 

This link will allow you to download a DX pack that you can use to see how I did it. You can just swap for your graphics and use it if you choose.

Why would you want the main object to close out but not the subobjects? It can be done, but I just wondered if that's practical. Or do you mean 'hide' not close?

ETA: if they are all part of the same gadget, then closing the gadget will close all the subobjects therein.

Ditto. If you make the objects to not be children of the sidebar, they would remain open, as objects, but not as a gadget. Now if you want the sidebar to dock offscreen, that's different. But as sViz said, I don't know why you'd want the sidebar to close and leave the objects open.

Again, if the sidebar is a widget/gadget, and you close it, the sub objects will close too. That is just how it works.

The reason they all close when you close gadget is because they are all exported together as a single gadget. It seems like to do what you want you need to make each object (weather, meter, drive) a separate gadget. That's the only way to close them independently of each other, but you'd also have to run them separately, too.

Other than that, you could write a script to delete the individual objects within the gadget, though I wouldn't recommend it. For one, it gets a little challenging when trying to delete child objects before parent objects. For two, there's no way to bring those objects back once they're gone, except to restart the whole gadget.

 

Are you making an actual Windows Sidebar gadget (via the option in DX Pro) or just a regular DX gadget that is a sidebar?

Windows sidebar gadgets can't be made in the new DX. If he's that new to DX, I'm sure he has a new version.

No. But 3.1 is rather old. One would think if you're new to DX you wouldn't have such an old version. 3.1 hasn't been available for quite some time.

 

That aside, what you ask would require scripting, which I can't help with, and would not work as you want it to as a gadget. No matter what version of DX you have.

Maybe you should PM VadM or Skarny.

Concur. I, personally, can't think of a way to script what you want. There may be a way with regular DX gadgets, as opposed to Windows Sidebar.

Read replies 21 and 22.  It doesn't matter what version of DX you have. sViz and I do not know how to make it do what you want.
