    How can I get around the problem of not being able to use the "on done playing" for a flash?
    We're trying to use some out-of-house flash units inside our course and 
    I need to "show" page navigation controls once the flash has run but not before.
    
    Help!

    You can do more or less anything, by adding suitable ActionScript to the SWF itself. It may be possible to use “On: Timed Interval” actions listening for specific changes in the SWF, but it depends on how the SWF was programmed.

    In fact Flash aint needed for much anymore. All you do in Flash you can do in HTML5 with CSS and Javascript animation. Depending on your coding style in Actionscript the step from Actionscript programming to Javascript in Lectora is easy. Me myself was a Flash actionscript programmer/designer/animator in the ancient past.

    The problem is that the Flash is not ours, it is from a 3rd party. I can’t go in and change anything because I don’t have the source, and I can’t re-do it in HTML5 for the same reason.

    I have to use it as it comes <sigh>

    A few options you got Jana. You can offcourse ask the third party to add the needed script so it works as needed. I am not sure about agreements you have with the third party, but for me it is very common practive to deliver sources too when a job is done. Actually the most contracts i see for freelancers its written down in it black on white. Then you have still a few other options. You could import/run the swf you have from a new fla/swf. In that one you can add any code you need and do as you please. And then there is the option of decompiling the existing swf. Tools like http://www.flash-decompiler.com/ and http://www.sothink.com/product/flashdecompiler/ do quite a good job on decompiling swf of which you dont have any sources.

    Last option, and i do think its the best one. Rebuild the thing in HTML5 and javascript. Actually to convince you thats the best way to go. Send over the swf, and i will rebuild it for you in HTML5 / javascript.

    Kind regards,

    Here is the file I’m using to test with. It is one of twenty-odd that one of our departments wants to use.

    I’m going to try importing it as you suggested and see if that works. Then I’ll be learning to manipulate flash – we’ve not used it (or any video-type media) due to bandwidth issues crossing to Asia and Europe.

    Thanks for your help!

    No file attached Jana. If you want me to check upon it, a .swf would be nice.

    Why can’t you use on done playing with an embedded swf? It seems to work ok in the attached.

    On another note, are these just animations or do they contain interactive content? In other words, can you convert them to videos with something like Camtasia?

     

    Post a swf if you can.

    I’ll have to see if that department can get in touch with the 3rd party. I’m just trying to help them out. Right now, I just have to assume they’ll not goto the next page until the video is done. Usually, I don’t show the button until everything is finished. They want to use these videos because they’re free, and ya get what ya pay for, I guess.

    I appreciate all the help! Sorry it took so long to get back, I’ve been a bit under the weather for a while.

    I don’t know why it doesn’t work, but it doesn’t. When I use that trigger, nothing happens 🙁

    The system won’t let me attach a SWF file – I’m going to zip it to see if that works.

    The difference is that Darrels animation plays on the main timeline, while your Captivate swf contains several movieclips. If at all, Lectora has only ever been able to monitor the main timeline. For me the On: Done playing action only fires in FF and Chrome, but not in IE.

    He needs to decompile the swf back to an FLA then add an externalInterface call at the end of the movie.

    That’s not an option for us 🙁  It’s a 3rd party SWF and we can’t take it apart.
