Error when jumping to another page

Charmaine Anderson 7 years ago updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 7 years ago 1

I keep getting an error  below when jumping to other pages in Interact mode.  Error occurs after clicking element and when the requested page starts to load. This happens randomly but frequently, like every other time I visit the same page in Interact mode.  This happens in a number of places in my app.  I checked the code on all the page elements and nothing is obviously causing the issue. Action on element is simple On Tap, animate, jump to page #.  Even occurs on a static element with no animate action, just Tap > Jump Page #.


Please try to fix this as my app is getting close to being launch ready.  Thanks!

Not a bug

It is best that you set all your "Jump" action sets to run AFTER any animations.  Right now our guess is that you have Jump behaviors occurring while there is animation going on.  Make sure also that if you have animations that are in a loop you put a "STOP ANIMATION" action set for each animation prior to running the Jump action set.  You should setup the Jump action set to run after the animation stops.

  

We will put some code in the next version that will prevent this from happening, but for now you can follow the directions above to avoid those errors.

Ezra, this is also happening after I click a STATIC element to launch a new page, so I think it is a bug. This is occurring randomly, but often.  Thanks for looking into this.
