Navigating into MSOs

Jul 30, 2012 5:19 PM

Hey all,


I'm wondering if anyone has found a way to navigate to a specific state within a MSO. I'm specifically trying to have a MSO in the vertical orientation and allow the user to turn to the horizontal orientation without losing their stop in the MSO.

    To navigate to a specific state, create a button with a Go To State action.


    To make sure that the slideshow remains on the same state when the iPad is rotated, make sure that the multi-state object (MSO) has the exact same name in the two layouts. You specify the MSO name in the Object States panel.


    You might want to watch a few basic videos about DPS to learn the basics. Here's a getting started page:

    I think I understand now. Here's something you might want to try. In the horizontal layout, create an empty invisible MSO with the same name and the same number of states as the MSO in the vertical layout. When you rotate the iPad from vertical to horizontal and back to vertical, the MSO state should be preserved.
