Customizing default Resume Course screen

Feb 26, 2015

Hi All,

I'm trying to figure out a way to customize the way the default "Resume Course" screen looks when a user returns to the course. Ideally, I'd like to not have the default grey background and pop-up in favor of one of my designs, and if possible update the button styles as well, but I can't seem to find that template screen in SL2. I thought it would be in the Master Feedback slides, but it is not. I've tried searching the forum before posting this but haven't really found what I've been looking for.

Has anyone tried to accomplish this before?

I've done a relatively good job at customizing almost the entire player to remove the default features and such. This seems to be my last hurdle. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the reply Emily!

We might have to settle for the changing of the colors if I can't figure something else out. It seems strange that with all of the options available for removing and customizing the design of the standard player that this isn't possible at this time. Hopefully in a future release we'll have access to this the same way we have access to the Feedback Master Slides.

I'm currently trying to take the concepts in this link ( a step or two further to see if I can get a custom resume screen to work the way I'm envisioning. 

Thanks again!

Meant to mention - it doesn't actually clear out variables, or prior states, etc.. it merely directs the user to one specific screen or right back to the last place they were. If you want to specifically clear out variables, you'd need to do those manually. You could do that via JS. Resetting states would require setting up your slides and layers to reset to initial state.

Hey Steve,

Thanks for the sample file! I'll definitely be taking a look this morning. I'm using the Restart course trigger to reset variables. It seems as though this was recently updated for SL2. The rest of the slides are set up to return to initial state since I'm using a custom replay button on each slide. I'll let you know how this works out once I've gone through it.

Thanks again!

Give this a shot. Story file attached.



Hi, everyone...

I dig this threat after a year hoping some help. First of all thank you very much for this contribution Steve.

I can't understand from where you pull: window.temp="loaded";

It's working fine on flash but not on html5.

Any clue on this?
