Pause/play without using the seekbar

Is there any way to include a pause/play button in the player without using the seekbar? (I don't want to use the seekbar because it allows for users to skip part of the course by clicking on the seekbar.) I want to have a button together with the other buttons in the player, instead of making a customized pause/play button on each slide.

Hi Denise,

Welcome to E-learning Heroes!

Just for my reference, and ease of reading, I'm providing your inquiry below:

Rather than changing all the colors, I changed the transparency to 100% for the seekcontrol features bg, border, seek-bg, seek-border, seek-position. No lines remain...just wish we could disable the ability to seek altogether while keeping the pause and re-load features. Have requested also, and look very forward to an update. When?!

Correct, it's not possible to disable the seeking portion of the seekbar. However, an easier option may be to disable the seekbar, then add your own custom Pause, Play and Replay buttons. You can do this pretty quickly using shapes and triggers

Hello everyone. I was able to minimize at least the scrolling part of the seek bar by setting all its colours to white. There is still a little line that I cannot get rid of though....


Actually, one step further... I changed all colors of the seekbar to match the player colors (with the exception of the play/pause/replay button) and it disappears! The ability to fast forward through the page is still there, but the visual cue to do so goes away.

I am trying to play with the .xml output and create the transparency effect for the seekbar. However, I don't see a transparency attribute. Am I missing it, or does the property need to be added?
