Actually, I have two updates to report:

SCORM API Wrapper updated to version 1.1.4

I’ve received a number of emails from folks who say their LMS can’t auto-detect the API. Therefore, by popular demand, the SCORM API Wrapper for JavaScript has a new feature: the ability to specify what version of the SCORM API should be used.

Why should specifying the SCORM version make a difference? Well, while in most LMSs the API version detection should work fine — I know for sure it works in the ADL test suites and SumTotal TotalLMS — some LMSs may expose both the SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 APIs at the same time, messing things up a bit. In those situations, specifying the API version manually should clear up any confusion.

Best of all, it’s super easy to use — just add one line of code to your JavaScript, before the LMS connection is initialized:

SCORM.version = "1.2"; var success = SCORM.connection.initialize(); if(success){ //continue as usual }
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

I’ve updated all of the example files to use version 1.1.4, and they all work great in the ADL test suites. If you get a chance, give ’em a run in your LMS and let me know how it goes. Thanks! 🙂

FYI, this update doesn’t affect any of the code in the Flash ActionScript classes. Speaking of Flash ActionScript:

ActionScript 2.0 example file now available in Flash 8 format

I received a few emails from ActionScript 2 developers who don’t have Adobe Flash CS3 yet. My example files were created in CS3, which means they can’t be opened in Flash 8. To help the AS2 guys out, I converted the AS2 demonstration FLA to Flash 8 format and posted it as a separate ZIP file. Hope you find it helpful.

Update: all demonstration files have been relocated to the downloads page.
