Match activity using the new engine

Adrienne Brown 4 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Inna Komarovsky 4 years ago 1
Hello,

In a previous post about 4-6 months ago you mentioned that you were working on a small document/tutorial that will describe how to setup a Match activity using the new engine. Is this document/tutorial ready yet?

Answer

Hi there,

The matching effects are not yet completely fixed, so we will put together the tutorial when that is working smoothly. I apologize for the delay. We've had to focus on other bug fixes and improvements at this time.

animation won't play on second tap

Charmaine Anderson 5 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Inna Komarovsky 4 years ago 12
Animated graphic elements (.png sequences) set NOT to loop won't play in Interact mode on second tap.   I tried changing the replay from 0, to 1, to 100 and it still won't play again on second tap.  Kids will want to keep tapping things to make them happen again so it would be nice if we could resolve this.Thanks for looking into this or advising what I might be doing wrong.

global counters not working

SeanB 5 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated 5 years ago 6
You may already be tracking and fixing this, but just in case.

  1. Create a global counter on page 2
  2. add a button tap > counter add 1 to it, then counter display
works as expected. now,
  1. on other pages add this action to any element:
  2. behavior counter display, target our counter, execute on page load "yes"
Run in Design mode
Expected: increment counter on page 2 to X, navigate to other pages and back and continue to see X on all pages that execute counterDisplay

Actual: global counter behaves as a page counter - not available to other pages, value is discarded after leaving page 2.

This is urgent for me as I want to use it to allow user to toggle off app-wide audio. See http://feedback.interactbuilder.com/topic/531056-how-can-you-play-page-and-narration-audio-together/?user_satisfaction=1#satisfaction_rating_edit

Hi Sean,
Here's a way to get around this problem:

1. On the pages that have CounterDisplay on page load, add a text element, and use that as the target of the CounterDisplay behavior. The CounterDisplay behavior has a separate field for Target and Counter, and the Counter field is where you can select the global counter that will display in the Target text element. So the global counter keeps track of the value, but the text elements on each page act as a container for displaying the value.

2. On the pages that use CounterDisplay on page load, go to the page properties, and set the Save Page State field to No. This makes sure that the "on page load" behaviors happen each time the page opens.

stop import psd file

Serge Patry 6 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 0

When importing PSD file is it possible to had a button to stop that transfer. Reason if by mistake I am importing the wrong PSD file or for what ever reason, a button that would stop that PSD import would be useful.

Thank you.

Serge

Answer

This might be useful but I'm not sure what we would do if a user cancelled the import.  What if it got through a part of the import, should it delete everything it did so far?  We will investigate this further.

Speed up page loading in design / interact mode

Charmaine Anderson 6 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 1

It would be awesome if you could speed up the loading of pages when one clicks on a go to next page button.  Not sure if this is dependent solely on the weight of the assets on the page being called, but if there is anything you can do to speed this up both in design mode and interact mode that would be great.  It takes about 10 sec for me to load each page in design mode.   Thanks for your consideration.

Answer

I'm not really seeing any issues loading pages in design mode.  On a complex app that we have it takes less than 2 seconds to move between pages in design mode and about the same amount of time to move to interact mode.  I am going to close this topic for now.  Try the latest version 3.3, if you still have an issue we may need to look at your app.  I'm sure by now you have optimized your graphics. Do you have animations with a ton of frames?

3.4 Locking up and not allowing edit or delete.

Judy K. Johnson 5 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 5 years ago 0
I work on P.C.  I downloaded Builder 3.4 today Sat 1/25.  I am having same problem in 3.4 as Clint.  When working in Design I have a couple pages that just lock up.  I can't even get out of Builder without Task Manager.  The pages have several elements with simple linear transition so I thought I would try deleting a few elements.  The program will not even let me delete an element but locks up listing a problem with database.

There is no way to edit and try to adjust the page to play appropriately.  I really need a fix for this.
Answer
We are fixing this and an update will be released shortly.

Draw Line

Jen Hoyte 5 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Inna Komarovsky 5 years ago 3
In the old version, the DrawLine allowed you to start drawing, stop, start back drawing in a different direction, stop, continue in a different direction and so on.  In this way you could get a bent line.
Now once the mouse is released, the line cannot be continued in any direction.
How can I get it to work like before?
Thanks.

Hi Jen,
If you add a Drag-Move (Self) action set to the element, the effect should work as it did before, where you can continue adding to the line.

Android player issues

Ranco 6 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Inna Komarovsky 5 years ago 2
Tried the InteractPlayer on my brand new Samsung Galaxy S4.
First, as already mentioned, it is hard to see the login window, but it's only once.
Second, it takes 25 seconds to start (!), the screen is black (no splash), as if it is off. Very frustrating. And not only in the first run. Same with my S3 mini.
Third, when I download an app, I get an error message:

I can't click the "Send Error" (and can't hardly see it). Download continues and completes, but there's nothing in any of the shelves.
And forth - the icon for the player is SO similar to Google Play icon:


Please advise...
