What is the PopText Widget?
A good way to think about the
PopText Widget is as a page within a page. Basically, anything that
you would add to a page, you could add to a PopText item. Then you
can control the PopText items from navigation buttons within the PopText
Widget. The PopText object can be sized to fit your needs. So,
whenever you want to provide your users with more detail or information
about something on a page, you have a perfect application for PopText. You can use hotwords in the PopText
Widget to give your user the
ability to jump from one PopText item to another, not necessarily in the
sequence that the items are in.
Don't like the default yellow
background and MS Sans Serif font in the PopText Widget? Now you can easily
customize PopText to look exactly the way you want it to look! Click
on the thumbnail below to see how easy it now is to customize your PopText.

Why Do I Need the PopText
Here are some ideas for how you
could use PopText:
To show mathematical formulas
and equations - You can have graphics of each step of the equation and
show how you would step through the formula.
A step-by-step procedure
explained in detail - The first item of the PopText could be a little
table of contents so learners can jump to steps they wish to see.
As a mini photo or graphic
album - Lets say that you want to show several different
graphics/pictures and you want your users to be able to select the graphic
and/or flip through all of graphics/pictures.
To explain something on
the page - For example, with a computer simulation, you might want
to provide a more detailed description of the elements on the screen.
The possibilities are
endless...and, you can use this Widget together with my
Audio Player Widget and you will
have an extremely powerful and interactive application without any hassle

How Does the PopText Widget Work During
The PopText Widget is easy to use during development.
Just drag it onto your page from the catalog. The extended
properties will allow you to easily customize the look and functionality
of your PopText. You can have PopText on every page of your project

has to click a button to pop-up the PopText.
Who Developed the PopText Widget?
I am the creator of
the PopText Widget. While I have used similar functionality in various
projects I have worked on over the years, I was unable to get this type of
tool to work when exported to the web. However, with the addition of
the Action Methods, I was able to make this work for Native and DHTML
