Button state to trigger an action

I'm trying to create a button that when clicked will perform multiple actions: play a short audio and jump to a slide. Is it possible to do this by assigning an action to the button Down State?

You never trigger an action by a state, always by the success event of the

button.

Not linked with the original question. You should need an advanced action like this:

   Play Audio ....

   Delay Next action by  .... seconds               where you indicate the length of the audio clip in seconds

   Go to Next Slide

 

Alternative: starting at the pausing point of the button,  put a shape with Alpha=0 and stroke width=0. Attach an audio clip to that shape and let the timeline extend for the duration of the audio clip. Trigger the action 'Continue' with the button.

Do you have a solution so that when a button is clicked an audio file is played fully before jumping to the next slide? I have an advanced action set to do both, but the audio file doesnt play. It jumps right to the next slide.

Adding the "delay next action by. . ." row did the trick! Thanks so much! 🙂
