Unload isn't triggered

Problem: In the last slide of my prez I want to jump to a different slide on Unload. It seems as if the unload event is not triggered. What am I missing?
I tried both with and without AutoAdvance.
In another slide it works …
Thanks,

Rolf

Notes:

Hi Rolf,

When the presentation is about to show a new slide, it’ll trigger the unload event on the current slide, and the load event on the new slide. The presentation will pause or end (depending on AutoAdvance value) at the last slide, so there’s no new slide to show and no unload event for the last slide.

Moreover, unload event is aimed for cleaning tasks, you should not add jumping slide actions in this event.

Thanks, Toan,

okay, I got that.

Since unload is only for cleaning tasks, what would be a ‘safer’ way of jumping to new slided? Maybe a timer and jumping to the new slide on timeout?

Thanks,

Rolf

Hi Rolf,

Can you please let me know the criteria to choose the new slide to jump to?
If it depends on the user interactions, you can check and change the slide on the interaction event.

Hi Toan,

it really is just a little animation. After this animation, I want to jump to another slide.

I think a could have the animation in another timeline and jump after this timeline. It would just be easier to have something that jumps after the slide. And I thought unload would be the right place to put it.

I’ve also tried to have the slide to which the prez should jump after the animation after the slide. That worked fine as well.

Is one of the methods better, ‘cleaner’ than the others?

best, Rolf

Hi Rolf,

I’m afraid that I don’t understand your use case correctly to give an advice on choosing the better method.
