How to create two trapezoid buttons next to each other?

07 Jul 2021, 20:10

What I want here: https://i.imgur.com/vBZhnPy.png

The area in the dotted line doesn't need content, but it does need to be clickable and interact like it's part of the Button. Is this possible in Noesis? I know how to draw shapes shown here, but I'm not sure how to make it part of a Button.

Thanks for the help! It is, but I see the problem when trying to add a border. Would I have to create a separate Path to act as a border for the triangle?

Yes, you'll need another Path for the border, I updated my example in xamltoy accordingly.

Okay, I actually am struggling because my button heights (65) and stroke thickness (3) is different from your example. Did you make these Paths in a Blend designer? What is the best way to make them? https://i.imgur.com/IuLQ7CW.png

Re: How to create two trapezoid buttons next to each other?

Hi, I updated my xamltoy to have buttons with 65px height and 3px stroke.
I didn't use any designer for this particular example, but I usually edit the paths in Blend using its vector tools.
