Repeat current slide

Hello,
I’m trying to find a way to add a button to repeat current slide - I want to use this for the SCORM export so the user can repeat a slide when he reaches the end of it.
I added a button with an:

  • execute java
    and then
  • continue presentation

The execute java is:
Prez.ShowPreviousSlide()
Prez.ShowNextSlide()
(i’m using version 6)

this works fine for all slide but the first one (as there is no previous).
Any idea how to make this work for all slides?

I tried using ShowSlide and GetSlide but the first wants an integer and the second returns an object.
Any suggestions?

Best regards and thanks in advance,
Michael

Hi Michael,

For version 6, you can use the script below to repeat the current slide:

Prez.ShowSlide(Prez.Session.SlideIndex + 1);

Hi Toanls,

This works perfectly - thank you so much. Great!

Also, if you could use your expertise to assist me with another problem, I would really appreciate it:


I’m struggling with a pause/resume button

Thanks again!

I’ve answered that question, please check it.

Hello everybody,

i have the same concern, but in AP7. Currently i am using for a custom repeat button the following code for On Click: Execute JavaScript:

prez.previousSlide(0);
prez.nextSlide(0);

I would like to use

prez.showSlideAt(currentSlideIndex(),0);

but i have no idea how to get the index number of the current slide. Could you provide me with a reasonable solution?

Many thanks in advance and BR
Marcel

Hi,

With ActivePresenter 7, you can get current slide index via:

prez.currentSlideIndex()

The index starts from 1.

More details can be found in the User Manual page 212.

Hi dangle,

thanks for the prompt reply, great support again!

I forgot the ‘prez.’ part inside the brackets. The following code works perfectly:

prez.showSlideAt(prez.currentSlideIndex());
