Tutorial / Mockplus RP / Interactions / Popups


Mockplus helps you make a popup or overlay to present your content. 

Let's first watch a video to see how you can do that: 

With Mockplus RP, you have two methods to create a popup or overlay:

Method one

Use sub-artboards to create a popup.

Step 1: Put all content of your popup into an sub-artboard

Add a sub-artboard and drag all the components you need onto the sub-artboard.

Step 2: Make it pop

In the Main artboard, drag the link point of the trigger component onto the sub-artboard. (Note that it is important to link to the artboard itself rather than an individual component on it.) You can then define the details and your pop-up is finished!

The relative position of the sub-artboard to the main artboard can be defined by the user. Once you’ve created the interaction, select the interaction command in the interaction panel, and a mirror image of the sub-artboard will appear in the main artboard. Drag the mirror image to adjust the position of the sub-artboard during the presentation.

To close the pop-up window, simply click the pop-up component. You can then drag the interactive link point of a component on a sub-artboard to the sub-artboard and then complete the setting.

Method two

Use "Show/Hide" commands to create a popup.

Step 1: Choose components

Drag a Button and a Panel onto the main artboard (Generally, the Button will serve as a trigger, while the Panel will serve as the pop-up window.) Double click the Panel to present your message by dragging a "Text" and a "Button" component into this Panel. 

Step 2: Edit component style 

You can edit these components to improve their visual appeal.  

Step 3: Make it pop 

Drag the link point of the Button outside the Panel; choose a "Click" trigger and a "Show" command for it. Then, double click on the Panel and set a "Click" trigger and a "Hide" command for the Button inside. Finally, you can hide the Panel. That way you will get a pop-up that can be triggered by clicking the Button outside.
