    Jeopardy game (2002)

    My wife uses PowerPoint to do a test review for her introductory geology classes. Together we whipped up a presentation that work like the TV gameshow Jeopardy! Hyperlinks work pretty well because they change color after you click them.

    I would like to make the game work even better. I want her to be able to click anywhere in the square and have the dollar value disappear when she returns to the main game board, just like it does on TV.

    I thought about putting a box on top of each square of the game board and it would have no line and no fill. I would want the fill to change to the color of the background when clicked and for the user to be transported to the slide with the correct question.

    I'm sure someone has worked up a cool template like this before, right? Any pointers for me? I have attached the version she put together for this past semester.

    Very clever <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>.
    Suggestion: Instead of fussing with disappearing blocks, how about changing your colour scheme so that followed hyperlinks turn the same colour as the background.
    In 2002:
    1. Turn on the Task Pane View, Task Pane
    2. Select the Slide Design - Color Schemes task pane
    3. At the bottom of the task pane, there is a link <font color=blue>Edit Color Schemes ... </font color=blue>, click it and the Edit Color Schemes dialogue box will open.
    4. Select the paint chip for b] Accent and followed hyperlink[/b]
    5. Click the Change Color button and select the same colour as your background

    Great tip! It worked like a charm and was WAY easier than VB scripting the colored blocks to do the right thing!

    All you need to do to reset the hyperlinks is close the document and open it back up again and you're ready for another class. I like it!

    Good Evening Bradley,

    Have you completed this ? if so could you post the new sheet? I am trying to create the same type of thing for a party and I don't want to have to reinvent the wheel if it is already out there. That is if you would be willing to share.

    Thanks in advance for the help,
    cvbs
