    It will be greyed out for responsive projects, because it is not supported for them. Same for rollover caption and image.

    I have a problem using Rollover Slidelet with the click box
    at the same position.

    I used Rollover Slidelet to solve my rollover problem to make
    the highlightes on menues and buttons but when i need at certain
    menu item to put Rollover Slidelet and Clickbox at the same
    position, Rollover effect just happen when i click the click box
    and not when i mouseover it, anyway to solve this problem?

    Also when i make a Rollover Slidelet when i rollover if the
    rolover image didn't take the whole screen a close button appears
    when i rollover (X) at the top right corner of rollover image, is
    there a way to remove it?

    DB:5.22:Rollover Slidelet And Click Box zc

    Yes, Thanks it works but not that good . it seems that there
    is something i don't understand about ordaring.

    Is the ordaring of objects differ in run time, if i put 2
    images one for rollover and another for mouse out over each other
    which i should but in front of the second??

    DB:4.53:Pausing A Slidelet a8



    Hello everyone,

    I added a Rollover Slidelet with the "Stick Slidelet" feature turned on. When the user clicks on the rollover area the Slidelet will pop up and remain onscreen... But only for the amount of time in the Slidelet timeline. So If I set the Slidelet timeline for 10 seconds the Slidelet will then disappear after just 10 seconds. Is there a way to keep the slidelet on after the user clicks on the rollover area? I can't seem to add a pause button to the slidelet. I guess I could extend the slidelet timeline to 999 seconds but that seems like a clunky solution.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    I'm having trouble figuring this one out:

    I have what's essentially a table of contents that lets the learner choose which area of content they want to explore. These I created as button widgets. The client wants there to be subtext under these buttons that describes that particular area of content. I assumed the best way to do this was to make them rollover captions, that way they could see the subtext before clicking away. However, these rollover captions have to be on top of the button- thus disabling it. I've tried using a click box, but that gets rid of the animation of the button, which the client really likes.

    Any idea on how to accomplish this- I think an advanced action would work, but I'm pretty new at those, so some guidance would be great.

    Thanks for the help!

    btw, using Cp 5, windows...

    Hello,

    If you do not have Actions in the Properties panel, it is a static Button widget. You can also see this if you open the Workspace Widgets, and in the widget panel set the filter to 'Static widgets'. BTW the Buttons widget coming with CP5.0 was a static widget, with CP5.5 there is both a Static_Button and a Interactive_button widget. You cannot trigger actions by the static widget, the only possible actions are in the properties of the widget themselves, mostly navigational and Open URL. I blogged about this button widget, its possibilities and limitations:

    Hi there,

    I'm using Captivate 7.

    My aim
    I want to show learners 10 top tips. I have 10 numbers displayed on a slide to represent each tip. When a number is clicked, the relevant tip (in text) is revealed in the centre of the slide and a matching narration plays.

    Current configuration (happy to change)
    The numbers are image buttons set reveal the matching text when clicked, andI am using a rollover slidelet on each for the audio

    My problem
    As the image above shows, this approach works except that the text remains on screen. This means end users see jumbled mess of overlayed text as they click through the numbers. How can I set this up so that, when a different number is clicked, it changes to display the text and play the audio for the most recently clicked number AND the elements for the previous number/s immediately stop showing/playing?Please note, users may click the numbers in order but also may click them randomly.

    I really don't know where to look so any advice would be appreciated - can't be done; can be done and here's how; or can be done and here's a link to a relevant tutorial .

    DB:4.13:Animation In Rollover Slidelet Playing With Unwanted Double-Click Sound 8p



    I've been using single slide captures as hints for my simulations. These are inserted as .swf animations and are activated by a rollover slidelet. They have been playing normally and sensibly on around 10 lessons so far, but they are causing problems with my latest one.

    The hint captures show the mouse pointer moving and clicking on an object - such as navigating a folder tree. Most contain a single mouse click.

    However, in the preview and in the published version, they are all sounding like double clicks.

    I also have a short demo (3 screens) that is inserted onto a slide as is, without a slidelet and this is having the same problem. The weird thing with this one is that it is meant to have one double click - this sounds fine, but all the single clicks are doubling up.

    I'm baffled as to why this is happening. Is it possible that this particular file has gotten buggy, or am I missing something?

    All I can suggest here is to:

    Just learn not to use Rollovers with Clickable areas if this bothers youReport it to the Adobe developers so it can be factored into the next release. (they are always working on the next release) The link is in my sig.

    DB:3.96:How To Use A User Variable To Control What To Show In A Rollover Slidelet? 7a



    Hi all,

    I am using a rollover slidet (and a clickbox) to do the following:

    Each time when the user rollover the picture, it will play an audio. When the user click on the image, it will open a pdf file;--- this has already been realized;

    However, I also need to realize this but couldn't get it:
    When the first time the user rollover (haven't clicked yet) on the image, show text caption 1 ("in order to read other sections, you must read this section first");
    After the first time the user clicked on the image, every time when the uer rollover, show text caption 2 ("click to review this section").

    To realize this, the rollover slidelet, the clickbox and the image are stacked one on top of another by this order (rollover on the toppest and image on the bottom).

    I set an advanced action for the clickbox as assign the variable "ccstandardsclear" as 1 (its initial value is 0);

    For the action of "On Rollover" for the rollover slidet, I set the advanced action as a conditional action:

    if ccstandardclear = 0, then show textcaption_1;

    else show textcaption_2.

    (here notice that I first placed both textcaption_1 and textcaption_2 inside of the rollover slidet area and I couldn't find these two items' names in the dropdown item list of the action editor. Then I moved both textcaption outside of the rollover slidelet area so I am able to find them in the item list of the action editor)

    Both textcaption_1 and textcaption_2 are set as invisible in their property panel.

    However, I was hoping that the action of "show textcaption_1/2" could bring them visible.

    Yet my way couldn't get it work.

    I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this.

    Thank you.

    DB:3.93:Rollover Slidelets And Advanced Actions - Keep Alpha km


    Hi all,

    I have a question regarding the rollover slidelet in combination with advanced actions. What I want to do is the following:

    Whenever a user hovers over a specific element on my image, I want to set the alpha of everything surrounding this element to 25% while keeping this element on 100% for the duration of the rollover (mouse over rollover area).

    So I cut my image into different elements and use Advanced Scripting in specific rollover elements to say: On rollover, apply effect - image_surrounding_element- Alpha = 25%.

    I do this for all images that are not part of the element that is subject to the rollover.

    However, here is my issue. I can keep the text in the rollover element just fine for the duration I set. But when I rollover, the alpha gets set to 25% but then after a second or 3 its like the screen resets and all alpha's are back to 100%.

    How can I set the duration of the advanced action to last just as long as I want? Or at least until the mouse moves away from the rollover area?

    Best,
    Frank

    There must be a way of accomplishing want I want in Captivate. This seems so basic and straightforward, there MUST be a way. My situation is this....I have a design where there is a picture and buttons for different items in the picture. On click, users should see a text caption and listen to the text caption's audio. Many times they also see an animation with the audio and text.

    1) We desinged Captivate to have buttons that on click would display the text and animation. That works, but with the audio it is a different kind of story. With the audio added to the text caption, the audio cuts off. Somehow or somewhere, Captivate is set to only play x seconds of audio if the audio is attached to a text caption. This is the only explanation I can figure out. So basically, adding several seconds of audio to text captions is not a good idea.

    2) As second alternative, we are using rollover slidelets, which do part of the trick (on rollover show text and play the audio). However, there is no way to "on rollover" display animation. The only way to to this is to set the slidelet to "on click" display animation. That does not work since we can't have half the actions happen on rollover and the other half on clicks. Confusing!

    3) Since slidelet seems the best alternative for achieving what I want (displaying audio, textbox + animation), I tried the following...in rollover slidelet hotspot i set it to "on rollover" "no actions". i also set the slidelet to be invisible. i set the rollover hot area to "on click" display textbox and slidelet. That of course did not work. Even though the slidelet hotspot is set to do nothing, it stills plays the audio (attached to the slidelet) on rollover.

    So, I am back to the drawing board. If this does not work, we will have to scrap all interactivities done in Captivate and do them in Flash instead. Ideas?

    This is a very simple and basic interactivity feature how come it is not easily accomplished in Captivate?

    I am using Adobe Captivate 4, what I am trying to do worked fine in 3, but for some reason doesn't seem to work in 4.

    I have a slide with several Rollover Slidelets and I want the slide to pause until the user clicks on the Forward button in the playbar. This gives the student the opportunity to click on each Rollover Slidelet and view the content then only move forward in the tutorial when they are done "playing" with the Rollovers.

    What is happening is the slide is pausing as long as I don't roll-over or click on anything. As soon as I click or rollover a Slidelet the tutorial advances to the next slide. I can extend the timeline to 10 minutes but this skews the tutorial duration that displays in the menu and I have several of these in the project so what is a 30 minute tutorial looks like a 90 minute tutorial.

    Hi there

    There are a few different ways this might be accomplished. If your goal is to remain entirely in Captivate, you might consider configuring an Advanced Action to do the work for you. You could reposition the playhead upon entering the next slide based on a variable you set.

    Alternatively, you could hide the Playback Controls until all the elements have been interacted with.

    DB:3.81:Slidelet Issue (Captivate 4) 8x



    Greetings all,

    Recently we started a project which uses Adobe Captivate 4.

    Right now I'm working on a project with Captivate 4 and I've stumbled upon an issue with Slidelets.

    I've created a Slide with a list of different subjects. My idea is, that you can click on an item in that list, so that a Slidelet will open up (which will overlap most part of the Slide). On this Slidelet there will be more information about the subject plus some pictures. When done viewing the Slidelet, you can click on the 'X' in the upper right corner to close it, and go on and have a look at the next subject in the list on the Slide.

    The problem starts when I open up a Slidelet. When I hover with my mouse over this Slidelet, and my mouse pointer hovers over the areas where in the Slide the other Slidelet-hotspots are, my mouse pointer turns into a 'hand'. I can then even click on the area in the Slidelet, and a different Slidelet will open up?! This is not the way I want it. Only when hovering over the areas in the Slide should the mouse pointer turn into a 'hand'.

    I can't find a way to 'hide' these hotspots in the Slidelet, or to turn the 'hand' cursus off. Any ideas???

    Thanks

    I have slides with multiple rollover slidelets. Each slidelet has its own audio file added and the "Stop Slide Audio" is checked.

    The Rollover Action is set to On Click = "No Action" On Rollover = "No Action". Stick Slidelet is unchecked.

    All works as expected. Until you start randomly clicking on the rollover hotspots. Eventually, if you rapidly click like a test monkey from hotspot to hotspot, you can get the slidelet to appear and it will not go away (clicking the close X does nothing as well). If you roll over other hotspots you will have both slidelets visible and playing audio at the same time. The audio of the "stuck" slidelet continues to play even if you go to the next slide.

    You cannot attach files, you have to insert screenshot images, using the small still camera icon.

    Rollovers will have to be replaced by click and show work flows. I don't have an idea what you used the Slider widget for (many use cases), but fear that a workaround there will not be easy if possible.

    On each of the 13 steps, we have two rollover slidelets. The

    The project publishes fine, but when I view the output, there
    is latency when the rollover slidelet is selected. We can see the
    loading screen, but it is very slow and goes away without playing
    the SWF.

    Although there are 13 instances of the demo task SWF, there

    DB:3.58:Did Functionality Change For Slidelets? dk


    In CS4, when you clicked on the slidelet active area, the slidelet would appear. If you used the "stick slidelet" setting, the slidelet would appear for a set amount of time or you could click the "X" at the top right to close the slidelet. With CS5, clicking the "X" will shut the slidelet momentarily and then reopen - creating a continously cycle. Is this a bug or a change of functionality?

    Hi folks. Have a bit of a problem that's driving me off the wall. Am developing a site for a client, and on the biographies section of his page, he a little roll-over box to popup when you roll the mouse over a certain person's name, that way the user can get a brief summary of that person before they click and are taken to the full bio.

    The rollover works perfectly fine in IE on Windows and Firefox on Windows, but when using Safari, everything goes to ****. I'll include the link below, but the basic problem is that the top three categories work fine, whereas any other category, the rollover box randomly appears WAYYYYY down the page (so far down that you have to scroll almost endlessly to even see it). Anyone have any recommendations? it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks! Link:

    DB:3.50:Cp6 Want To Make A Rollover Slidelet Clickable (And With No Rollover) 38


    A rollover slidelet has a click event, but that cannot be used to show the rollover. I know, it sounds a bit confusing.

    http://blog.lilybiri.com/events-and-advanced-actions

    If you want to use the click event, you can use the rollover area to trigger an (advanced) action that shows everything you want to show. Because I suspect you choose the rollover slidelet to show multiple objects. Those objects have to be invisible at the beginning of the slide. And once they are visible, they will remain visible until you trigger another event that hides those objects.

    That sounds complicated, but it is not really that hard:
    insert all the objects on the slide and make them invisible by unchecking 'Visible in output' in their Properties panelpersonally I would group those objects (CTRL-G on Win or right-click menu after selection), will label that Gr_objectsinsert a rollover slidelet, and you can drag the slidelet itself off the stage, you'll not need itin the properties panel of the rollover area, Action accordion, for rollover choose 'No action'in the properties panel of the rollover area, Action accordion, for click choose 'Show Gr_objects'
    You have to be aware that the playhead will not be stopped in this case.

    DB:3.46:How To Create A Multiple Page Popup In Captivate Using Slidelet xj



    Hi, I have some short information that I want to display the following way:

    -When user rolls over somewhere on the slide, display slidelet. I want the slidelet to show a textbox and a picture. I also want the slidelet to have a "next" button that will take the user to a second page on the slidelet.

    I was hoping to use a hide/show multiple actions on the "next" button included in the slidelet but noticed that the button in a slidelet only allow me to hide and show 2 elements (2 textboxes or 2 images or a combination of 1 and 1). In my case I want to have 4 elements on the slidelet. On slidelet enter, I want to show textbox 1 and graphic 1, graphic 2 and textbox 2 would be hidden. Then when user clicks "next" i want to hide textbox 1 and graphic 1 but show graphic 2 and textbox 2, and so on.

    I don't think i can do this with slidelet. Ideas?

    Thanks

    DB:3.46:How To Create A Multiple Page Popup In Captivate Using Slidelet xj


    Hi there

    Normally you cannot use a Button or a Click Box inside a Slidelet. So I'm doubtful you will be able to accomplish this. At least using a Slidelet. Perhaps you could re-think it and create the illusion of a popup window by layering in a Highlight Box or Image object to serve as the background, then presenting the Image and Caption using Advanced or Multiple actions.

    Two questions:

    Once I place a rollover image in a webpage, how can I go back and modify the rollover image? Once I click the "OK" button in the Insert Rollover Image dialog box, it seems I can't pull this up again.

    Also...is there a way to "copy" a rollover image from one webpage document to another and retain the functionality? I tried dragging and dropping the image, but it doesn't act like a rollover--it just shows the original image and retains the link.

    DB:3.42:Slidelet Affecting Text Animation jz


    The opening slide of my project has a title that is Text animation. Menu options below this are buttons that link to various slides. On each button is a Rollover Slidelet that displays further information on the particular menu choice. My issue is that the slidete is affecting the Text Animation. Briskly moving the mouse over the Slidelet hotspot causes the Text Animation to replay itslef and even jut play half, so only half the text is visible. Heres my setup:

    Slide = 8 seconds long

    Text Animation = Appear after 0 sec, Display for rest of slide. No Loop

    Button = On success continue, Display for 8 sec, Pause after 7.4 sec

    Rollover Slidelet Hot Spot = User clicks inside Slidelet Negative, User hover over Slidelet, NO Action

    Rollover Slidelet Hot Spot = Display for 3, appear after 5

    Rollover Slidelet = Display for 3 seconds

    I have tried all options and set up several new projects just to see if my project was corrupt, without finding a way for the Slidelet NOT to affect the Text Animation?

    Any Ideas?

    DB:3.42:Slidelet Affecting Text Animation jz


    Hi

    It is the expected behavior of rollover slidelet. Whenever you hover the mouse over the rollover area (and slidelet appears), the animation playing on the main slide/timeline should pause. Hence, the text animation will get paused, when the slidelet content is playing.

    What is the best way to stop this from happening?

    Hi Matt

    The likely reason the rollovers aren't working on that second

    of the rollover areas. Try right-clicking the Click Box and
    choosing Send to back. Then see if the behavior changes. It should.

    DB:3.28:Click Box Pause Not Working - Related To Rollover Slidelet kx



    I have rollover slidelets appearing as hints throughout my simulation. The rollover appears after 7.5 seconds and all click boxes and text entry boxes are set to pause at 14.5 seconds.

    This pause works fine most of the time.

    However, I've noticed that if I mouseover the rollover slidelet, then leave my mouse there for a couple of seconds after the slidelet animation has finished, on moving the mouse again, it ignores the pause and goes on to the next slide.

    It's as if it is accepting my mouse movement as being a successful action for the click box.

    This does not happen if I move the mouse away from the rollover immediately after the slidelet animation finishes.

    This is happening for both click boxes and text entry fields.

    Any ideas why this might be happening?

Does anyone have any suggestions how I can make this work, or is there another way I can do this?Many thanksJodie

    DB:3.22:Captivate 5 - Slidelet With Audio When Clicking 33

    If all you need to do is trigger an audio file to play you could just use a rollover caption or rollover image object to do this. Just attach the audio to the caption or image that appears on rollover. Then the audio will start to play as soon as the image or caption becomes visible. If you want to hear the audio but not see the image or caption, just drag it off stage so that it won't be visible to the user.The above solution works where rollover is all you need.If on the other hand you want to trigger the audio on click, then attach the audio to the Success caption of a button or click box object. Once again, if you don't want to see the caption, just drag it off stage or convert it to a transparent caption with no text so that it is effectively invisible.If you need to trigger audio by clicking some other object, you can use the Event Handler widget (http://www.infosemantics.com.au/catalog/widgets/interactive/wdgt_event_handler_01) and attach the audio to its Success caption. This widget gives you the option of triggering the Success on just about all mouse actions you can think of, including rollover, rollout, click, mouse down, mouse up, double-click, and even right click.

    you were simply asking if one could insert Captions and position

    Hello

    I want to click on some text and then a box to open with more text in it, but then to remain for the rest of the page, unlike rollover caption.

    Hi DevonUK,

    I suggest the following:

    Insert a caption, and enter the desired text.Select the OPTIONS tabIn the NAME area, deselect the VISIBLE checkbox.Make note of the Item Name, click OKPosition the caption where you'd like it to appear on screen.Insert a transparent button.Change the ON SUCCESS option to ShowA SHOW option will appear, use the dropdown to select the item name of the caption created earlier.Click OK.Position the transparent button over the desired text.

    I tested this in CP4 and it worked very nicely.

    DB:2.99:What Am I Doing Wrong? Newbie Trying To Learn Advanced Actions k8



    I'm really hoping somebody can help me with this. I was hired on to my present job to learn Captivate and create quizzes. The thing is, a lot of the quizzes involve looking at screen-grabs for an answer. Before I came, the quiz-builders were basically using the forward and back keys for functionality, but one of my first assignments was, "Get the screen-grab to appear on the same slide as the question."

    I figured out how to do that by doing a rollover slidelet...only there doesn't seem to be a way to add a slidelet to one of the default quiz slides. In addition, we need the option for partial scoring. Either way, all of this led me to Lilybiri's wonderfully educational posts on how to create custom questions, which involve advanced actions.

    So I rolled up my sleeves and got the Extended Radio Buttons widget from Captivate Dev. I'm using Captivate 5.5, I've got 4 possible answers and one correct answer. Three buttons on the slide: Submit, a nextOK and a nextVOID. Submit brings up an advanced action that calls nextOK if the answer is correct, which reports 1 point. If the answer is incorrect, nextVOID is supposed to be called and doesn't report anything. I can get the right answer to show, but when the answer isn't right, I can click the "Next" button to my heart's content, and nothing happens.

    If this were photoshop or another program I know, I'd know where to go and what to do to try and trouble-shoot this problem, but I am just completely stumped. Can somebody please tell me if I'm a) taking the completely wrong approach or b) on the right track and I just need to add this little tweak I would never have thought of?

    Here are some screenshots from the issue I'm having. Please help out this desperate newbie.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your kind words about my blog. It would be easier if I could have access to your file, should that be possible? If not I will try to check your screenshots, but my eyes are so tired today. I see that you have only one decision, what will happen if the condition results in False? I cannot see the Else portion of the decision.

There are posts showing this problem existed over a year ago in 5 and, correct me if I'm wrong, Adobe seems to have remained mute.

They remain open for whatever duration I set, regardless how many times or where I click the X.

    DB:2.95:Cp8 Is It Possible To Initiate A Different Timeline To Start Playing Once You Click A Button? f1



    A bit challenging to explain, but I'll give it a shot:

    If we take a rollover slidelet for example - It has its own "timeline" so you can basically display additional objects on screen separately from the main timeline.

    Is it possible to have the same effect when you click a button?

    So basically i want certain object to appear one after the other after I click a button.

    Thanks!

    DB:2.95:Cp8 Is It Possible To Initiate A Different Timeline To Start Playing Once You Click A Button? f1


    I think I'll leave you to someone else, because I feel you have some 'ide fixe' and you didn't understand my answer at all. Each slide has its unique timeline and each object in that slide has its own timeline. You never have a separate timeline for a gropu.

    And from your screenshot I suspect you do not understand the timeline which is the core of Captivate. I see a text 'Click here to continue appearing somewhere but all the buttons have their pausing point almost at the end of the slide? If a user clicks on such a button, the playhead will start from its pausing point. That was the reason I inserted a screenshot myself, it didn't matter if what was appearing was a rollover area, it could have been any other object or group, but that was the file I had ready.

    This slide is really overcrowded, hence my first suggestion to spread it over different slides. You can also use micro navigation, you can insert cpvc slides, there is a lot possible. But as long as you believe there should be a way to have a separate timeline, cannot help you. Maybe someone else can better explain.

    DB:2.87:Rollover Slidelet Doesn't Stick fz



    I looked this up and found some threads but they didn't really help. I have tried this in both Captive 5 and Captivate 4 and it does the same thing. The slidelet stays on the screen only as long as I have the cursor inside the hot spot even though I have set the Stick Slidelet checkbox. I have checked the timeing of both the slidelet and the content of the image and text being displayed by the slidelet.

    One of the forum suggestions was to make sure that AS2 was configured. I can't seem to locate anywhere in Captivate 5 where you can select AS2 or AS3.

    Hopefully someone can set me straight on both questions.

    DB:2.85:Cp4 - Retain More Than 1 Flash Video In Slide To View Independently 7x



    I have 3 rollover slidelets that each have a Flash video in each. The slidelet that contains the flash video is 'not visable' - (options properties).

    The concept: The user hovers the mouse over one of three buttons. When finding the one to play the button is clicked to displayed the slidelet and flash video. The user then clicks on the video playbar to run the video. I 'loop' the video so that the video stays within the slide. I now want to select another clip, so I pause the open video and then click on another button. What happens is that this action closes the slide and moves onto the next slide.

    I want to allow the user to select any video clip and play them at any time without closing the slide and moving to the next slide.

    Slide 2 shows the published slide ready for user activity

    The easiest way to insert flash video in a slidelet is to right click the slidelet area and choose 'insert' and choose the type of insert.

    As Rick states, this will then have it's own timeline.

    What is a Rollover Slidelet? It looks like a rollover caption to me.

    Thanks very much.

    DB:2.83:Rollover Slidelet am


    Hi there

    A slidelet allows you to have an area that is sort of like a "picture in a picture" as you see on TV. Basically, you define a rollover area that triggers the Slidelet to play. Then you insert objects such as Images, Captions, Rollover Captions and Rollover Images into the Slidelet area. Perhaps the slide itself is three seconds long and pauses after two seconds. The user mouses over the Slidelet Rollover area and triggers the Slidelet. It begins to play and perhaps plays for 30 seconds. (you get to define the play time)

    Hopefully that helps better explain it.

    Cheers... Rick

    DB:2.82:Multiple Audio Objects In Captivate 5... ap



    Hi,

    I am looking to create a series of Captivate 5 slides that contain numerous audio objects, these objects will play the associated audio at a given time defined by mouse click, rollover, or a similar event. The slide should remain persistent until the user clicks a button that will progress them to the next slide in which a similar format will be presented.

    So the creation of the button to progress is a simple case, but the creation of the audio objects that will play due to various user events seems not so straight forward, and this may be because I am yet to find my Captivate timelines hat.

    I have tried creating slidelets that I add audio to and then tried adding the On Rollover property of Execute Advanced Action. I then created an expression in which I set a script to extract the current frame and add a value to this so that it would allow the slide to exceed the natural pause point that was created with the introduction of buttons. However this had the undesirable effect of simply activating all audio at the same time. When I staggered the slidelets in the time line after the pause of the button, only one of the slidelet was available, as the other were too staggered in the timeline and were not visible at the time of pausing.

    I just wondered if I am on the right path here, or if there is a simple way of doing what I would like to do, which is to allow students to see text and rollover/click and hear audio of the text, or to have a button that will do this. It may also be necessary to allow the students to see a question that when clicked on the answer will be spoken.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards.

    It is a bit a 'hidden' feature and this is the work flow:
    have your image ready, in the correct size and write down the width and height in pixelscreate a rectangular shape with those dimensions (Transform) or bit larger, in FillStroke accordion make stroke invisible (width 0); mostly I set alpha Fill to 100%in same accordion click on Fill, and in the dialog box choose the third icon 'Texture'uncheck Tile, Stretch and browse to your custom image.

    If you want it to be a button, check the option 'Use as a button' in top of the Properties panel and the Actions/Timing accordions will appear.

    Hello, what I am trying to do is when i roll over an area something appears on screen, and when I roll off the area it disappears.

    As there is no roll on/off capabilities the way around that I have seen is to have two slidelets, one that shows the caption, and one that hides it, both on rollover. If this can be done on one slidelet someone let me know?!

    But the issue doing it this way is that there is a hand cursor that I do not want... So the question is, is there a way to remove hand cursors from Slidelets in CP 6, I'm running the latest patch.

    Thanks

    Nick

    DB:2.73:Text Entry Box And Rollover/Button Problem zm


    I am creating a simulation where the user enters text on a
    screen and presses the tab key to continue. However, I also have a
    rollover and a button on the same screen. When the simulation is
    run and you enter the text and press the tab key, the rollover and
    its corresponding text briefly flash up on the screen and then
    dissappear. It is annoying and unprofessional looking.

    My two possible resolutions included retiming the rollover
    and button so they happen before the text box, but this eliminates
    the user's ability to use the rollover and button for the whole
    slide, which is unacceptable.

    My second solution was to change the action to the enter key
    instead of the tab key, but that is not realistic for the software
    I am creating the simulation for, and will be completely
    unacceptable in some of the future simulations I will be working on
    shortly.

    I've read part of the article about making the right click
    functionality work, but I am marginally html savvy, and know
    nothing about Javascript.

    Any suggestions?

    Kari -

    I too have had issues with the Tab key in IE. I have yet to
    find an acceptable solution to the problem, and would be very
    interested in hearing about any solutions you find. Unfortunately
    time constraints for the project I am working on have forced me to
    go the route of pressing Enter. With the intention of coming back
    to fix things as time permits me to find a more realistic solution.

    I have an idea that may work, however getting the time to try
    it is my issue at this point. If I get it working I'll be sure to
    share.

    Hello All, I am trying to create a cause/effect diagram inside of a slidelet. When I try to add a motion path to a smart object in the slidelet, the path marker (the green and red arrow) suddenly drops out of the slidelet and off the stage. Can I prevent this from happening? Thanks!

    DB:2.73:Motion Path Of Objects In A Slidelet x3

    It looks like it could be a bug with Captivate. I managed to get a motion path in a slidelet to stay in the right place, but only after dragging it back to the object repeatedly until it was where I wanted it.

    DB:2.71:Bugs In Captivate?!? 1c


    Hi all,

    I just found your details on the adobe website with the link to your own personal website which I found to be most impressive!

    I understand from the adobe website that you have experience with Adobe Captivate 4. I have used this application since 2007 and I have a query about the quizzes that you can build in the programme yourself.

    I have attached a screenshot of the hotspot quiz (picture A) that built myself as a test and what you can see is basically a hotspot test where you are supposed to select the correct answer by clicking on it and then pressing the submit button.

    BUT...as you can see, the user can not only select the correct or wrong answer but any point on the screen so that it is covered in spinning blue stars! I thought that from a logical point of view, you should be able to click on the icons themselves in this case the letters A, B or C so that a blue star appears just on them and it should also work in the sense that if you click on A a blue star appears on that letter and then if you click on B the blue star on A disappears while the one on B appears.

    Makes sense?

    I have checked the settings within Captivate but I have found nothing...

    Is this some kind of default that cant be changed? Does this hotspot quiz item exist as an external SWF element in the adobe captivate folder in the Program files? If so, then maybe I can dissect this by using SOTHINK decompiler.

    Is it not possible to install some new kind of hotspot functionalty from adobe themselves and installing this within Captivate?

    AND...
    Is there any way to change that bottom bar for example to remove the audio button?

    ALSO

    If you look at pictureB, I have just included a rollover slidelet but when you rollover it the blue box that appears has a small black cross in the top right-hand corner. Again, this is something that I would like to get rid of but captivate doesnt give me that option or (if this is some image in a folder in the captivate program files directory on my machine) could I just delete this manually and remove it that way?

    Or is this some kind of un-removable default?


    Finally, I think there is some kind of BUG in captivate if you look at picture A again, I have built some hotspot question where sometimes you can only click on one icon for example B and the blue spinning star materialises on it BUT when I try to select one of the other letters I cant put a blue star on them or anywhere else like the first example I was talking about at the top of this email! AND when I click the SUBMIT button below I go to the next screen but when I go back to that quiz page the spinning blue star is still there with the message You have answered this correctly! and you cant click on the CLEAR or SUBMIT buttons.

    I am sorry about all the questions but my client is desperate for me to get this sorted out!

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Please reply to this email address and keith_trodden (at) yahoo (dot) com

    Thanks and regards

    Yes... so in other words it is an action item but only if it remains on the screen. Makes sense. Thanks.

    I put a JButton into a cell in JTable. When the mouse moves over the button, the tool tip shows up, but the rollover icon does not.

    If I click the button, then both tool tip and rollover icon will behave correctly.

    Is that a bug?

    DB:2.70:Jbutton Tool Tip Shows Up But The Rollover Icon Does Not. 9f

    The JTable doesn't know it's a button. It knows it's a JComponent, and a TableRenderer only. Tooltips are from JComponent. JTable can't sit there and analyze the renderer components to cover all the possible bases for what a component might do.

    The key thing to understand is that the JTable basically takes a screenshot of the returned component.

    The only way I know to do what you want is to add a mouse listener to the table, figure out the cell moused over, and update something in the model that can tell the renderer component to go to a mouse over state for table to repaint with.

    DB:2.70:How Do I Make A Text Caption Disappear In Captivate 7? j9



    Hi,

    I want to make a text caption disappear.

    I don't want to use a rollover or slidelet because their hotspot area (even transparent) covers the button which stops the up, over, and down rollover states from showing (I want the different state colors to show). To make sure the 3 button state colors show, I used an advanced action with the button to 'Show' the text caption.

    It looks great but the text caption doesn't disappear when I click anywhere.

    I would like the text caption to disappear when the user clicks the mouse again.

    Could you please tell me how to do that?

    thanks!

    How to create a rollover which saves it's state if clicked?

    I tried to simply use both scripts ("image rollover" and "swap image on click") together, but of course it doesn't work in deserved way.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    DB:2.70:Keep Rollover On Click ca


    You can do this easily in the following way:

    Create an absolutely positioned div on the page that contains the OVER image, and position it so that it exactly covers the rollover image.Hide that div by setting it to 'visibility:hidden'.Do your rollover behavior on the original image as usual.Apply an onclick behavior that SHOWS the hidden div.

    When the hidden div is made visible, it will mask the original image to make it look like the click has fixed the rollover image in place.

    A potential problem would arise if your page is fixed width/centering. Since the div is absolutely positioned, it will not center along with the page unless you take other steps. Is that the case?

    Ideally, it is not recommended to insert a published Captivate SWF as an Animation on to a slide/Rollover object.

    A Captivate's published SWF is far different and cmplex then a regular Flash Animation.

    Hello there,

    I am designing a rollover slidelet using captivate.

    When mouse rollovering an area, it can be highlighted with a thick border, but I want to make the highlight border thinner, can I change the value of the highlight box after rollover? If so, where can I change it?

    Thank you so much.

    DB:2.65:Rollover Border dc


    You don't really have a lot of control over the border of the rollover hit area. You can configure it to be just a thin line by leaving Show Border on but deselecting Show Runtime Border. Or you can deselect both options and show no border whatsoever for the hit area. You can change the colour of the border, but apart from these two settings, you cannot configure its width very well.

    The stroke of the border on the area revealed at rollover is much more configurable.

    Hi,

    I'm using Captivate 7

    Can a text caption have a scroll bar?

    Here is my situation:

    On slide 1, I have a Text Entry Box. The student types a bunch of text. This text is saved as a variable.

    On slide 2, I have a Text Caption. It auto-populates with the text entry box variable from the previous slide.

    The problem is that, if the student types A LOT of text in slide 1's Text Entry Box, I will need a scroll bar to show it on on slide 2 in the Text Caption.

    Can the Text Caption have a scroll bar?

    If not, can you think of a different way to display the text so that a scroll bar can appear? Could a Rollover Slidelet be used this way?

    I am sure this has been answered but I can't find it.

    I am using several rollover slidelets as left menu boxes and the info for each coming up in the right. I would like that the area where they hover or click to "lighten" to show they are over the right area. I tried using a button (up, over, down) but the button either hides the slidelet if placed over on the timeline and if placed under on the timeline the over/down don't show. Hope I explained this clear enough.

    Anyone know of a solution or work around.

    thanks again.

    DB:2.64:Rollover Slidelet And Button?? cm


    Hi Dave,

    I've actually used a (rather ugly) workaround for this... Although it only works when you have fairly simply, single-colour backgrounds. I doubt it would work otherwise.

    If I understand correctly, this is the behaviour you want...

    Without mouseover:

    On mouseover:

    If this is what you want, simply:

    - set the rollover slidelet trigger to match the background colour

    - set the rollover slidelet border to 0

    - ensure the rollover slidelet covers the button's area as well

    - draw a shape which matches your button overtop, set to an appropriate colour alpha for the "lightening" effect

    - select the rollover slidelet trigger and move it to the TOP layer (otherwise the slidelet will interfere)

    If the above isnt clear, take a look at this:

    Hope this helps, or gives you some other ideas!

    Dear Community,

    I am using cp4, I have slide with audio and a rollover slidelet (no audio here), I selected the option "stop slide audio when slidelet appears".

    When I preview Next 5 slides, the slide audio does not stop, (the progress bar shows a pause in the slide).

    I have copied the entire slide (slidelet included) and paste it on a new CP file, and it works fine (the slide audio stops when the rollover slidelet appears).

    So I copy and paste it back again to the original project (slide 5 original) so it was placed on slide #6. I have previewed the project and on slide 5 the same problem occurs on slide 6 was working fine. Then I deleted slide number 5....and after previewing the project guess what....yes... is not working!!!!

    I was wondering what is happening with the slide number 5....is there a setting or something preventing this to work correctly.

When learner advances through the next several slides the audio from the one of the slidelets will randomly play. There is no specific action or timeframe that it I can find that would cause the audio to start on those subsequent slides. If you go back to the slide with the slidelets it will show to be playing without any action on it (i.e. click or rollover).

    I have created a cp file called "re-use_content.cp" which has some commom rollover slidetelts and rollover areas that I will use in many other projects.

    The simple procedure is to copy the rollover slidelet form the "re-use_content" file and paste it on the "new-project.cp" file or "existing_project.cp" file as required.

    DB:2.63:Captivate 5: Rollover Slidelet Issue dp



    I have inserted 4 rollover slidelets into my Captivate 5 project. However, I have gotten only 2 to work successfully, although the steps are identical.

    On my slide I started with a rectangle and a text caption, and then duplicated both and made the duplicated rectangle and text caption invisible to begin with.

    And then I inserted the rollover slidelet so it would:

    On click, go to the next slide.On rollover, execute advanced actions where the hidden rectangle and text caption will show. And the rollover image is the entire background. I inserted the same background as the rollover image.
    I also have a tiny click box sitting in the corner which will pause the project, and on success, will continue.

    The hidden rectangle and the hidden text captions are at the top layers, followed by the click box and the rollover slidelet, and then the visible rectable and text caption.

    The issues have been inconsistent, but the latest one is that on it won't advance to the next slide on click.

    If I take out the advanced action so on rollover, do nothing, then it does go to the next slide on click. As soon as I put the advanced actions back, it does correctly show those hidden items and rollover image on rollover, but it won't go to the next slide.

    What I'm ultimately trying to accomplish is to highlight an area of the screen, simulating the experience of clicking, dragginh and zooming in on a section of that image. The next slide is the recorded movement of the area of the image being zoomed in. If I used a click box to begin the click and drag movement, the user must release the mouse click, or it won't advance to the next slide. Therefore I'm trying this slidelet so that even if the user clicked and hold the mouse, it would still go to the next slide without having to release the mouse button.

    My first two slidelets worked just fine by following the exact same steps, but #3 and #4 don't seem to work on click. I suspect that the advanced action scripts could be corrupt somehow, but I haven't found a way to address that.

    Any help would be appreciated, whether on troubleshooting the slidelet, or suggestion on another way to go about achieving the clicking, dragging and zooming experience.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for any assistance.

    DB:2.62:Audio Does Not Stop When Rolling Over A Rollover Slidelet After Publishing 3d



    I have the checkbox ticked to stop audio and when I preview it, it works. However after I publish the file, and rollover the slidelet, audio keeps right on going. What's worse is that the animations do stop, so when a user isfinished with the slidelet, they go back to animations that are out of synch with the audio. I'm using Captivate 5 in Windows and publishing an executable file.
