Using Hover and Visibility to show another embedded Mimic or DB Object.

Is there a way to use the Hover feature to change the visibility of a different embedded Mimic that you are not hovering over. Registry Entries or Variable maybe?

 

So this is a little hard to explain but I will try to convey the idea.

 

I have a (Overview) Mimic with several location names that are close together and cannot be spread out any more due to the nature of the Mimic and needing to keep everything in a single Mimic. Each Location has a small Faceplate Mimic, but the Faceplate Mimic is still big enough that it covers more than one location name on the Overview Mimic. 

 

I know it is possible to use the "Hover" feature to show the embedded Faceplate Mimic when you move your mouse over it, but with the size of the Faceplate Mimic, some of the faceplates will cover or overlap other locations and their Faceplate Mimics. 

 

So I'm asking if it is possible to link the visibility of the Faceplate Mimic to the Hover status of another object or Mimic?

I don't think this is possible normally, we don't expose mimic object properties like that. Maybe via ViewX Automation, but there be dragons.

Re: Using Hover and Visibility to show another embedded Mimic or DB Object.

@JChamberlain, Thanks. That is what I was thinking. I will explore some other options making the main Mimic zoomable, or adding hyperlinks to Open as an Inset (Relative) to do what I was hoping to do.
