Using Magic Stickers in Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jul 24, 2023 8:22:32 AM

Wixie includes a new category of objects called Widgets, that allow for additional interactivity in a project. Widgets can be an entire Wixie project or websites in a frame, or a special interactive objects that can change their appearance or animate. 

Magic Stickers are Widgets that a user clicks or that have their appearance set when a user opens a project. For example, the Ask the 8 Ball gives a prediction each time the user clicks, but the Christmas Countdown displays the number of days until December 25th. Talkies are a type of Magic Sticker that reads text, reads a text object, or plays a recorded sound.

Use Wixie's Magic Stickers to create interactive games, unique projects, and math practice activities that generate new content each time they are used!

Magic stickers are active when you click the Show button to present a project. When using Magic Stickers as part of an activity, designers can also set a magic sticker to function while editing by locking them.
