Overlay Toggle Buttons on a background image on a form
Posted on 2010-11-29
I want to have a form in access that has an image with a grid of buttons on top of it. I want a user to be able to click/toggle multiple buttons to select them. I need the user to see the image behind it (catalog page) and be able to click 1" x 1" buttons to determine space allocation for products on the page. I'll have a way for them to type in the part number of the item and then determine how much space is being used for that item based on the number of buttons they clicked....
Since I know the total size of the page and the cost of the printing costs, it'll be a snap for me to determine costs associated with marketing a product. I want a simple interface for the user internally.
Any thoughts? I was thinking if I could overlay a toggle button that is transparent, I could allow the user to see what I want them to but when they click on the page, activate the toggle. It'd be really good if, initially, it was clear and upon clicking, turned opaque to give feedback that it was selected. Then, once it was assigned to a product, black it out.
