Controlling Captivate Movies
Jim Leichliter just posted the information we have all been waiting for …
… on the Macromedia Authorware forum. I must confess that if I had taken the time to explore a Captivate movie I could have discivered this already, but … well Jim is obviously a better man than I.
Here’s what he had to say:-
In Authorware using the syntax:
CallSprite(@gotMovie, #GetVariable, "_root.rdinfoCurrentSlide")
Where “_root.” can be prefixed to these listed variables:
The rdcmnd can control the Captivate movie by using the SetVariable syntax and providing a 1 (true) or 0 (false). For Example:-
CallSprite(@gotMovie, #SetVariable, "_root.rdcmdResume", 1)
will resume the Captivate movie after it has been paused.
Nice one Jim!!
