Yesterday we released version 1.5.1 of the Lab Framework.
Version 1.5.1 adds a new help tip feature. You can see a demo here:
Lab has had Help Tips for a while now. These are bits of text associated with components in the interactive. In their original form, the user could only access these help tips by paging through the full set of them. In 1.5.1 you can now configure the help tip so that it adds a '?' icon to the top right corner of the component. Clicking that icon brings up the help tip.
Additionally a single help tips can now be connected to a multiple components. This only works well when the components are next to each other.
These features were added to support interactives like this one:
Happy modeling. :)
