Exclamation How to make text appear/dissapear with buttons

Hi, I just started using the app inventor today, I have an idea for an app, a money making guide for an online game I play. From what I understand from forums you can't make text link to other pages. So for example, if I wanted to make a block of text for how to make 50k how would I make just that block of text appear on screen after I click a button or text?

Let's say you want three things (they can be text boxes or Horizontal arrangements or just about anything. Using Screen arrangements allows you to group things together easily.)
thingA, thingB and thingC.
You could have three buttons always showing, labelled A, B and C.
When buttonA is clicked, set thingB.visible = flase, set thingC.visible = false, set thingA.Visible = true
Do the similar things for the other buttons. I think there is a tutorial about this if you search around.

I have a multiple page tutorial on my site. You can find it on http://www.taiic.com. Just look in the tutorials section.

@premes: Can't help without knowing what the error message, what kind of phone you have, etc. Though if the java version you indicate is correct, then you need to upgrade and make sure you have it enabled.

Take a look at this, Enable Java | App Inventor Info Center, and see if it helps you fix the problem.

What version of java do you have? In your original comment you said 6. That is an old version. If that is what you have you need to upgrade. Go to this URL java.com: Java + You and click Free Java Download. It will tell you if you need to upgrade.

After you do that, you can also go to the official App Inventor groups page and post in the "Getting Set Up and Connecting Your Phone to App Inventor" forum. You will be able to get more people helping there if you still have a problem after verifying that you are using the latest version of Java.
