    Steps

    1. Create all the required elements (background, image, text, ...) for your pop-up and add them into a Group collection. You should also embed a button in this group that will enable the user to close the pop-up.

      • To be sure your pop-up is always visible, move it to the Front layer of your scene.
    2. Either move the pop-up outside of the scene, or uncheck its Visible property

      • Move it if you want to use a slide effect.
      • Hide it if you want it to appear in place.
    3. Choose the trigger that will make this pop-up move into the scene / become visible. For example:

      • When a button is released, like an "Info" or "Menu" button
      • When the scene is double-tapped, such as when your pop-up is intended to act as a hidden menu
      • etc...
    4. Chose the action that will make your pop-up visible.

      • If you moved the pop-up outside of the scene, use the Move to action to slide it to the required location.
      • If your pop-up is hidden and already situated at the correct location, call the Show action to make it visible. You can play with the Show options to create a zoom effect when the pop-up appears.
    5. Add a trigger/action pair to the button inside your group to create the opposite behavior - that is, to make the the pop-up move away / disappear. For example:

      • Call the Move to action to move the group back to its original position, outside of the scene.
        OR
      • Call the Hide action.
