    Is it possible to make a region of the display that functions as both a display and a button (genie or visi-genie)? E.g. displays digits and can be clicked to launch another form. Can I update the caption on a button using a MagicEvent or something?

    It would be nice if workshop had z-order and I could just stack a transparent button on top of other stuff.

    Hi Matt,

    Welcome to the forum.

    If you are using a Workshop4 Pro, then you can use Magic Touch object and set the region on the display that you want to detect a touch. To activate another form you can use ActivateForm() function. Please check ViSi-Genie Reference Manual - Genie Magic.

    If you use fancy button then it is not possible, but you can use user button and create an image of the button that you want to display.

    Thank you.

    Best Regards,
