I have a swf file that shows images and plays audio when I
run it. I have not placed a "stop" in frame 1 of the file.
I would like to be able to stop and start the swf file using
captivate. I added the swf file to my library, and place it on
a slide. How can I have the file open (in captivate) and not
play until I click the Play button in the Captivate player.
Is there a way to set the default action for the imbedded swf
file to not play in captivate - so that Captivate (2.0) will show
the play button. Then I can click the play button, etc.
Nope, you cannot control an embedded SWF using the primary
Captivate project controls (the usual disclaimer "to my knowledge"
applies here). To put it another way, if you need control of an
inserted SWF, build that control into that object.
HOWEVER you can put the SWF on it's own slide in your
project, then jump in and out of it by using normal interactive
navigation methods and objects like branching with click-boxes,
buttons and the like. I guess my big question with doing that is
that I am unsure whether the audio can be made to stop when you
leave that slide and go back to "normal" progressions - or not. If
you try that, let us know what you did and how it worked.
