In powerbuilder, is it possible to turn a picture into an button? If so is it possible to program it so that if I hover on top of it then it replaces the picture with another picture?

Would this be achieved via theme.json, or through powerbuilder or something?

How would I achieve this, what code what I have to type?

Hi Nishant;

   You have the choice of using a picture, picture button or even a CB with picture in a DataWindow (as a few example controls). All of these controls can capture a "mouse move" event (among others). You can then code a script to change image under that condition. Food for thought.

Regards ... Chris

Hi Chris,

> You can then code a script to change image under that condition.

Do you know what code I can add to change the image as soon as I hover over the image button?

Addtionally, under checkbox, there is







Is there something similar for picturebuttons where on hover will show one image and not hover will show another picture?

The code could vary by control type used but in general ...

This.PictureName = "xxxxx"

You do this in PowerScript instead of themes.json
