This seems like a silly question but I'm suddenly having a problem with the alert function. I just upgraded a project from MX to 12. When the user takes a particular action, I use alert() to show a feedback message. The movie works fine, however, the projector does not. When I run the projector and hit the code to show the alert message, the system beeps but no message is shown. The program continues normally. I am running both the movie and the projector on Mac OS10.6. Here's the original line of code:
alert(myTextVariable&" has been added to the rolls -- you may add more students or return to Main Menu")
In attempting to narrow down the problem, I tried:
_player.alert(myTextVariable&" has been added to the rolls -- you may add more students or return to Main Menu")
None of these work. Anyone else see this?
By the way, I also notice that after every time I run a movie to test a change, the Script window is closed. What is particularly annoying is that, when I reopen it, I have to find my behavior again. Does anyone have a workaround for that or know of an option to set?
Have you restarted your Mac lately?
I rebooted it this morning. Interestingly, the alert started working again about two hours after I posted this and I didn't reboot during that time. I'm not sure what the problem was but researching these intermittent issues is a big waste of time. Thanks, Sean.
Did you ever find out what caused this?
I tried rebooting and am still having this issue.
I also have the same settings of:
- Creating projector in Dual boot and publishing on PC side with Director 12
- The problem only exists in Mac OS10.6
Any help would be great!
