For aesthetic purpose, I'm trying to place text zones in background of my page to frame fitlers. But if the user clic in the text zone (even if it is in background), this one go on top and the filters become unusuable :
Controls not unusable (after clicking on the gray shape by mistake) :
Controls usable :
Does someone has an idea about that ?
Many thanks !
One way to solve this would be to insert a background image. The below is a down an dirty example.
The yellow space is an unmovable, unclickable image. Just need to make it the color and size you need it.
I would actually recommend making the entire background an image file - filled in with the background color you want and with the square or square(s) you need in the perfect position that you want.
While this technique can solve this problem - there are limitations as with any web design that relies on a static non-scalable image.
Does that make sense?
I already thought about your idea @dabankman, but I'm afraid if you resize the windows or plug it to a higher resolution screen / projector, the shape "hard-coded" in the background image (like in paint) will not fit as desired...
You see my point ?
I absolutely do. Would be a really compelling option as you are describing as well. I hope you find something. You can lock visualizations in place. It would be really cool if you could have layers and lock the layers in place.
Can you get the control again after clicking the visuals?
What do you mean "Controls"?
I guess the click on the gray shape (background) makes the visuals loss focuses.
Can you share the file? You can delete almost all the data.
By "Controls" I mean slicers or buttons.
If I loose the filters, the way to find them back is to click on the page background (image for example, outside of the gray shape), then as the shape is in setted as background the filters placed on it become available (clickable).
You're right : click on the gray shape makes the fitlers loss focuses, but worste : they became non-clickable.
(I'm not able to attach a file to my reply)
Unforunately, I don't think it's possible to make any given visual "unselectable," so you'll just need to be careful when selecting slicers not to click outside their bounding box.
