A customer recently asked about adding their own buttons to use in RightBooth. So here's how...
Each button in the RightBooth buttons library comprises two images, an unselected image and a selected image.
Here is an example of a button we ship with RightBoothfrom library:
Notice how the selected image makes the button look pressed.
You can design your button images however you like, the pressed image can be the same as the unpressed image, or you could make it look highlighted, or pressed, as in the above example.
Once you've got your two images, you need to place them the following RightBooth Library folders:
The file format for the button images must be PNG.
If you want your button to look 'pressed' you must design the down image so that it moves in the Y down direction only.
Now you need to give your button images a filename that RightBooth can use to help position any icon that might be placed on it during the event...
New Button filename
Your button filename has to use the following naming convention if you want the button icons to appear on them in RightBooth...
BUTTON_NAME # ICON_CENTRE_Y_UNPRESSED # ICON_WIDTH # ICON_CENTRE_Y_EXTRA_PRESSED # .png
Taking our example button shown above, the filename for this button is: B4#40#50#5#.png
If you don't want the icon to change position when the button is pressed, set the last parameter to 0, for example see button: B1#50#60#0#.png
Remember that both your button images must have the same filename, which is possible because they are in different folders.
New Button Icons
If you want to design and use your own set of button icons within Rightbooth, you need to create a new set of icon PNG files and place them in a new sub folder within the RightBooth icons library folder:
Documents\RightBooth 5 Library\Buttons\Icons
For example, create a folder: Documents\RightBooth 5 Library\Buttons\Icons\My Icons
The My Icons folder must then contain a set of icons having the same names as the other icons found in the other icon folders, e.g. agree.png, back.png, etc.
All icon files must be PNG files. The icon image width and height MUST be square, e.g. 150x150 pixels.
