Bug fixes!

The CaptivateController has been updated to fix the gotoSlideAndPlay and gotoSlideAndStop bugs.

Also, gotoSlideAndPlay and gotoSlideAndStop have been edited to use standard numbering in place of zero-based numbering. This means when you want to jump to slide 4, you use mycontroller.gotoSlideAndPlay(4) instead of mycontroller.gotoSlideAndPlay(3).

I had a number of requests for adding a ‘toggle table of contents’ method, but unfortunately it won’t be added at this time. It turns out that while you can toggle the TOC using the controller, it breaks the Captivate movie’s playbar — the playbar loses awareness of whether the TOC is visible or not. This is therefore not a feature I’m prepared to add. You can still toggle the TOC yourself using KCWebPlaza’s workaround (listed in the comments).

I will continue to monitor the TOC possibilities and would be happy to hear suggestions.

Thanks to everyone who contacted me about the bugs.

  1. Philip, is the info command working for you?

    I’m using this syntax to trigger it in a hyperlink:

    I’m not seeing the Captivate info box for my published Captivate 3 or 4 movies. I’ve tried skin/no skin options.

  2. Sorry, but so far I haven’t been able to get it to work with CP5.

    It works great with CP4, just not CP5. I tried to see if I could “tweak” it to work, but didn’t have much luck. I’m really liking CP5, but without your fantastic controller, I’ll have to stick with CP4 for now.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

  3. Thanks. I’m looking forward to seeing how you resolve this and I really appreciate your efforts.
