Popups in the Tygron Platform
In the Tygron Platform, popups are used to indicate when a user's attention is required in the 3D World. They are small cubes which appear in the 3D World. They are only visible to the user for whom they are relevant. They are often accompanied by an exclamation mark on the minimap. Popups are considered a part of the user interface.
Types of popups
Depending on the content of the popup, a popup will appear differently.
Interacting with popups
You begin interacting with a popup by either clicking on a popup, or by clicking the associated exclamation mark on the minimap. This will open the popup panel. The popup panel will inform you of the action that is currently pending. Depending on the pending action, you may be prompted to provide input about the action. You finish your interaction with the popup panel by using the buttons at the bottom right of the panel. Usually, these will be two buttons. One of the buttons will be to confirm or approve the action, and the other button will be to deny or cancel the action. If you are not yet ready to confirm or deny the action, you can also click the "cross" at the top right of the popup panel, or the "close" button at the bottom left of the popup panel.
Interacting with a popup:
- Click on a popup to open the popup panel.
- If necessary, enter the information requested by the popup panel.
- Finish interaction using the buttons at the bottom right corner of the popup panel.
