Having to Click Twice for Mouse-Click Interaction

Former Member

I have an issue where when I click on a 'Mouse-click' enabled component that it works OK the first time, but when I click on the same component again, I need to click a second time for the interaction to take place.

For example, if I have a number of icons on a map to indicate cities but when I click on each first time, they work fine. However, if I revisit any of the icons, I need to click twice for the interaction to work. I have the same issue with a Pie Chart that is mouse-click enabled.

In terms of the icons, I cannot move to a 'mouse-over' scenario, as when you move off the icon to go to another, my components lose their data and it doesn't look seamless. Mouse-click allows me to keep the last value until I click on another.

Any guidance on this would be much appreciated.

Hi Scott,

Instead of icons use push button which does not have 2 states (ex : on or of). In push button source give the city name and point the destination to one cell Repeat the same for all the other push buttons and make sure that you have pointed to single destination for all the push button, then when ever you click the city push button only that value will be in the destination cell.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.

Hi Scott,

Try using transparent toggle button for data insertion to the cell mapped to the icon(keep this toggle button behind the icon). Select the insert data on mouse move and set same value for both on and off. So now when mouse moves away from the icon it will press the toggle button which in turn reset the icon data.

Hope this process answers your issue.

Good Luck & Keep Posting.
