Can I make the playbar appear at a specific point in the timeline?

In a project I am working on, I use a Hide Playbar action when the slide is entered.  After it plays to a certain point, I want to Show Playbar to reveal the Playbar.

Is this easily accomplished?

 

Many thanks in advance!

Something like this, with an Advanced Action triggered by the On Enter slide event;

Beware: the Delay command doesn't take into account if the slide is paused somewhere.

I like this approach, good idea for sure.  I was hoping I could place a button or shape in the timeline - something to generate an event that could be interpreted and Show the Playbar.

I might be able to get this to work.  I appreciate it.  Thanks

Can you explain more clearly what you mean by 'could place a button or shape in the timeline - something to generate an event that could be interpreted and Show the Playbar.' You can always put a button or shape button, where the Success event triggers 'Hide Playbar'. However the exact time it will happen depends on the frame the play head is at the time of the 'click' on that button.

What you describe here is possible if you know how to program Event Listeners in JavaScript or you have access to the CpExtra JS library widget for Captivate.   Be aware, this is not a free widget.

 

More information about CpExtra's Add Even Listener function is found here:

Event Listeners | CpExtra Help (widgetking.github.io)

Event List | CpExtra Help (widgetking.github.io)

 

Basically what you want to have happen is that an Action to Show Playbar is triggered when a specific slide object (e.g. a SmartShape or button) enters the slide timeline.  All of this is possible to achieve with CpExtra.

 

If you read through the Help files in the link above, but you feel pulling this off is still beyond you, you might choose to pay for the services of the widget developer to do it for you.  Your call.
