One of the most requested features on our first Breeze
project was a "quit" button. The easiest way to do so in an HTML
environment is to use the command
Type this into the address bar on your browser, and hit
return. Isn't that neat?
Okay, the scripting language in Flash (Actionscript) can
simulate typing something in the address bar with the command
...all we have to do is add that actionscript to the
onRelease event handler for a button in Flash. Then, add the button
to your PowerPoint before you use Presenter, and when the student
clicks it... voila!
This button has to be small, around 50 x 29 pixels, to
properly replace the logo. To actually replace it, you need to
publish your presentation to the hard drive like normal. Next, find
the folder you published to, and place a copy of your "button.swf"
file in the "data" subfolder. Then, edit (don't "open") the
vconfig.xml file in the same subfolder using notepad. Near the top,
you'll find an entry that says:
<uireplace name="logo" value= "" />
place the name of your button file between the quotation
marks and save:
<uireplace name="logo" value= "button.swf" />
When you load up the training next time, the logo will have
changed to your button.
