Time in Captivate – Building a clock (Part 1)
I'm a former teacher (and headmaster) in french primary schools. Now I work as a freelance on the net as a webmaster. I used to work with Flash for many years, but now I'm starting to discover Captivate and find it amazing !...

Hello Captivaters !…

After playing with variables concerning the Time (see Part 1), I thought I would be able to build a clock easily !…

In fact that was not the case… I think that the problem is that we can run actions “on entered” or “on closed” a slide, but not during it… (I even tried the “while” option with advanced actions without any success… ).

So I had to cheat !!!…

Play

Do you have a better solution ?…

In my next attempt, I will try to do the same but with an additional javascript like “rotate.js”…

Happy Captivating !…

Commands in the while lloop will excute with on average a 1 second delay, besides the delay you already added.

I prefer using the Timer interaction to show time, although I use advanced/shared actions for calcuations.
