    Suppress Play Button in Template

    SamC2 Level 1
      The "Play" button dominates the "Next" button in all presenter templates. Students get disoriented when "Play" is accidently pressed.

      Is there a way to suppress "Play" by editing the template XML shell?

          If you're familiar with Flash and Actionscript, you can use a Flash module to modify the player (which is just another Flash module itself). Try including this Actionscript on a button (or something else the user would have to click) that you drop in at the start of your PPT presentation:

          _root.m_controlBar.m_playBtn._visible = false;

          This will disable the play button for the duration, but is sort of a "hack" and totally unsupported by MacroDobe.

          :)

          By the way, if you change it to:

          _root.m_controlBar.m_playBtn._onRelease();

          it simulates pressing the play button - you can use this to programmatically control the Breeze player.

          The other controls are:
          m_volumeBtn
          m_attachmentsBtn
          m_slideBackBtn
          m_slideNextBtn
          m_playBtn
          m_viewChangeBtn
          m_scrubBar

            Mark,

            Thanks for the feedback. I'm on leave, but will give this a try this weekend.
