Modify Hotspots Dialog Box

From this dialog box, you can change the way the mouse works in InfoConnect. The session document uses the configured hotspots file until you reconfigure it.


  • Additional hotspots options are available in the Set Up Hotspot Display Settings dialog box.

  • When you click OK in the Modify Hotspots dialog box, your changes are saved to the currently selected hotspots file. If the currently selected hotspots file is one of the built-in hotspot files, InfoConnect automatically creates an editable copy of the file, saves your changes to this file, and saves it to the Hotspots Maps folder in your InfoConnect user data folder This folder location is configurable using the Data Location tab during installation. The default is C:\Users\username\Documents\Micro Focus\InfoConnect.

Map Hotspot

Define and add hotspots to the hotspots file using the following options:

Hotspot text

Type a text string, up to 80 characters, to identify the hotspot. InfoConnect creates a hotspot wherever this text string is encountered in your host application.

Select Action

Select an action to associate with the specified hotspot text.

Hotspot Mapper

The hotspot mapper shows all defined hotspot text and their associated actions, which you can modify or delete.

The list shows the order in which hotspots are evaluated. If the same hotspot appears multiple times with different definitions, InfoConnect uses the definition that's evaluated first. Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to change the order.


Opens the Hotspot Options dialog box, from which you can modify the characteristics of the hotspot, including the action associated with the hotspot text.


Removes the selected hotspot from the hotspot map.
