    Default {group.toggleVisibilityIcons:closeIcon:openIcon}

    Does anyone know the syntax to make this command work.

    I want to us the built in Alpha Five icons $$generic.add and $$generic.remove.
    I've tried: {group.toggleVisibilityIcons:"$$generic.remove":"$$generic.add"}
    and I've tried: {group.toggleVisibilityIcons:$$generic.remove:$$generic.add}

    and neither works. Can't seem to find any information on this.

    Thanks

    Hi Ronald,
    I'm not sure what you're really trying to accomplish here, or where you found this command.
    The command sounds like it could be something useful for many projects.
    I was able to find this video to toggle the visibility of a div or container (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyWUem0s91c), but I'm not sure
    that's the same thing.

    If you could give some info about what you're trying to do, and where you found this command I'm sure answers will materialize.

    Here's the video that shows what I'm trying to do. The command is described after the 2:45 minute mark.

    Hi Ron,

    Sorry for the delay, but thanks to Sarah Mitchell of Alpha Software, I have the answer.
    Quotes are not needed for the command to work, but you need to know where the image
    files are located so you can supply the location/filename combination ex: Images/$$generic.remove:Images/$$generic.add .
    I myself would expect to see some kind of extension like .jpg or .png.

    Hope this helps.

    Gregg

    Gregg,

    Thanks for your effort.
    As it turns out, I elected to omit the icons completely to eliminate clutter on the screen.
    But good to know for in the future.

    Thanks again.
