The activearea method

An activearea acts as a switch that can be put to a number of uses (see the skin definition reference page). It can, for instance, be used to start a program, open a URL, or toggle other disp sections' visibility. And this is exactly what we're going for here.

switch.tgaLet's use the switch.tga from the cFosSpeed "Default" skin, as it comes with "inactive", "clicked" and "mouseover" states already in place.

  [disp8]
  method=activearea
  bitmap=switch.tga
  rect=110,58,119,65
  action=toggle
  target=disp7
  blend_time=250
To have this section toggle the visibility of another, we first need to set action to "toggle" and target to the name of the section we want to control. Having the activearea fade in and out, as the mouse cursor enters or leaves it, can be done simply by assigning a value to blend_time (in milliseconds).
