How do I highlight a sprite?

Get help using Construct 2

Hi

I would like to have a sprite highlight when I hover my cursor over it. Is there any way to do this (an effect maybe?) without going to a different animation frame?

Thanks in advance folk.

I believe there is an effect that can help you, but is there any reason you don't want to use frame switching when the cursor is over the sprite? It is quite simple to make.

I can do the switch fine, but I want to learn if there is another way, so that I can save on sprite size.

Aha fair enough. Im pretty sure there is an effect on mouseover that covers what you want, but the name escapes me, apologies.
