    Making a Slideshow

    Document ID: IR10049
    The information in this article applies to:
    • AutoPlay Media Studio 5.0 Professional Edition

    SUMMARY

    This article describes how to make a slideshow

    DISCUSSION

    The purpose of a slideshow is to display images at a predetermined rate. In AutoPlay Media studio 5.0, this is accomplished by creating a project with one page per image you wish to display.

    1. On every page in your project, create one image object containing the appropriate image.

    2. Create the following action in the On Show event of every page in your project:

      Page.StartTimer(5000); --fires the timer once every 5 seconds.

    3. Create the following action in the On Timer event of every page in your project:

      Page.Navigate(PAGE_NEXT);

      The only page that does not have this action is the last page, because there are no more pages to jump to.

    4. Create the following action in the On Show event of your last page:

      Page.StopTimer(); --stops the timer

    The On Timer and On Show events are found by right-clicking on a blank space on the page and choosing Actions.

    MORE INFORMATION

    Help for slideshow enlargment

    As a Newbie, I have successfully previewed and published a crude slideshow
    demo as recommended in this thread. My effort has an opening and closing page with a button action as described in the Speedy Training disc shipped with my 5.0 Standard. I am using a trial of the 5.0 Professional as it has a timer.

    When I duplicate the middle pages to expand the slideshoe to 10 pages, my
    Published product remains at 5 pages only. What am I overlooking?

        George, to help with the graphics and buttons for a project, you can export the project to a single file that can then be opened in AMS. To do this click on File->Export Project...

          Delivering a single file to Forum

          I"m still two loads shy> My Manage Attachments dialogue box will
          identify the .apz .apt project file, but I cannot get either of them to
          upload. The Wait sign appears in each instance for 50-70 seconds before
          the failure is identified.

          Is there hope?

            Have you tried to manually .zip the file?

              Buggy prototype delivered

              With thanks to all, zip efforts in my hands have not succeeded.
              I am working with a new build from scratch and will hope to have a
              preview soon.

                Emailing Slide Show

                Hello,
                I looked through the tutorials, and help, but maybe I just missed it but I have completed my slideshow for publication, how do I publish for emailing, and what total project file size limitations should I be concerned with in order to email the entire slideshow?

                Thanks,
                Protoplasm

                  Ok, it's official, I am a complete and utter noob. I had to stop being so lazy and actually review the tutorials to realize this though :lol
