Help: Countdown timer(60 mins) to be displayed across several slides.

May 09, 2015

Hi everyone,

Can someone help me? This is what I need:

I've to create a course for 60 minutes and my Client requires a countdown timer to be displayed at the top right corner. How can I make this happen? I came across several custom timers in various threads and I'm unable to get hold of them.

I have a 60 min countdown timer in video/swf format. Is there anyway I can display it across several slides which pauses when the user pauses the time line??


Waiting for help,

Hi Clement,

The only timer that is built into Storyline is the quiz timer as detailed in this tutorial. You could set it up to be accessible from the very first slide and it'll be a part of your player set up. There isn't a way to add a custom SWF timer to the built in player, although it may be something you could accomplish using the Storyline SDK.
