Popups

In software, a popup is a graphic which appears above a parent element. The purpose of a popup is to alert a user that attention or interaction is required.

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.

Standard

Pending

Approved

A popup which informs you that an action you wanted to take has received the requested approval. Although no further interaction is required other than confirming the approval, this popup appears to make sure the user is aware their action has been successfully performed.

Denied

A popup which informs you that an action you wanted to take has not received the requested approval. Although no further interaction is required other than confirming the denial, this popup appears to make sure the user is aware their action has not been approved.

Interacting with popups

A popup panel to send a request to the municipality for a permit for the construction of offices.

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:

  1. Click on a popup to open the popup panel.
  2. If necessary, enter the information requested by the popup panel.
  3. Finish interaction using the buttons at the bottom right corner of the popup panel.
