  1. hello,
    your website is great, i was desperatly trying to integrate a series of captivate swf in a flash swf when i found it. I’m sorry to bother you but i was so happy when i saw your example on auto-load next captivate SWF into a Flash container swf. I tried your source files to practice. But something is not working: the player and captivate swf load but when it comes to the java instruction : the unload command doesn’t seem to re-enter the flash swf. Nothing happens the file stays stuck on the last captivate slide. Would you have an idea? It would be a life saver.
    Thank you in advance.

  2. true, i was distracted by the java instructions not doing what i wanted and didn’t read the top of the page. I’ll have a look.
    thank you

  3. Hello,
    i’ve got a big problem: i’ve created a captivate widget in as3. When I add my published project (with scorm 1.2) to moodle, there’s no data communication between my captivate quiz and moodle. After finishing the quiz there are no results transmitted to moodle. How could I fix this problem (captivate as3 and scorm in moodle)?
    I hope you can help me.
    Thanks and greetings
