    Using the Captivate rd commands in Actionscript

    Dan McAdam
      greetings,
      I'm using Flash to house multiple Captivate generated swf files (sequenced and identified by an XML file at startup)
      For example: I use buttons in the Flash "shell" file to navigate through the Captivate 'slides'
      btn_next1.onRelease = function() {
      if ((isCaptivate == "true") && (curSlide != totalSlides)){
      presentation_mc.rdcmndNextSlide = 1;
      ***** incomplete code example ************
      I'm having problems getting the command: presentation_mc.rdcmndNextSlide = 1;
      to execute more than once when called in a For loop

      and
      I'm having difficulty getting an accurate number when calling:
      presentation_mc.rdinfoCurrentSlide;
      to capture the current slide number

      the documentation indicates that rdinfoCurrentSlide should return the the current slide number using a zero based numbering system.
      I have found that the first slide number returned from rdinfoCurrentSlide is nearly always one (1) not zero (0)...

      I'm setting up a way to return to a specific slide in a specific swf when the user returns to that swf (this is in the context of an elearning system (LMS))

      thoughts?
