Can anyone point me in the direction of how to create or add a volume slider to an existing Captivate playbar? I need to launch my flash course in full screen mode which covers the Windows system tray and prevents users from adjusting their volume from that location.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using Adobe Captivate 9 and I have access to the CC suite for editing FLA's.
There is the VolumeControl widget, but you cannot put it in the playbar. Same for any custom shape button, they both have to be on the slides. Do you want SWF or HTML output? For SWF output, you could edit the widget (those are wdgt files) in Animate CC. For HTML, I'll leave the answer to a JS specialist. You can find all playbars under en_US (or your specific local folder), in the Gallery.
Thanks so much for the clarification. This does help. I will most likely just add something like the widget to the slide. Appreciate your quick response!!
I agree a slide would be ideal but you could create a set of volume plus and minus buttons with the following advanced actions associated with each:
Expression cpCmndVolume = cpCmndVolume + 10
Expression cpCmndVolume = cpCmndVolume - 10
I just picked 10 out of thin air. I tried this once with only an increase or decrease of 1 and it took forever to raise or lower the volume.
I'm havign the same issue. I hope the widgets get updated soon
Thank you Paul!
In our LMS we cannot use widgets at all (Captivate 2019 v11) - on publish Captivate creates SWF files on the widgets. The LMS rejects them. We had to create our own HTML5 specific functions to replace the widgets.
