Add events to elements on the stage

Set the Target element

The Target element is the element (or an element's ancestor) that initiates the event. For example, you might have an image of a button that you want the user to touch to initiate an animation.

To set the target:

  • Right-click the element.
  • Select "Add event" from the context menu. The events dialogue opens with the selected object selected in the Target section. Alternatively, you can bring up the events dialogue by clicking '+' in the events panel and select the target from the list displayed in Target view. You can only select an object to be a target if the element has an ID attribute. If the element doesn't have an ID, you'll be prompted to add one.
