Condition negation

Conditions that can be negated

You may want to create a condition that is the opposite of a condition that is available from an object's Conditions menu.

In many cases you can create such a condition by using the Negate operator to modify an existing condition. For example, if you want a condition that checks to see if the mouse pointer is not over a specific object, you can negate the condition "Check for mouse pointer over an object." The negated condition will be true as long as the mouse is not over the selected object.


Here is a list of some of the conditions that can be negated in Clickteam Fusion 2.5. If a condition can be negated, the Negate option in the popup menu you obtain by clicking with the right mouse button on the condition is available.
