Random Numbers and Layers

Jan 14, 2013

Thanks to the generosity of a forum member, I have created a button that uses java script to return a random number between 1 and 10. Using the random number that is generated, I would like to show the corresponding layer. Random Number 1 = Layer 1 etc. Each layer is to display a spinning while animation. If this topic has already been covered in another post, please point me towards the solution. Thanks.

Hi Katherine,

First you will need to setup 10 layers with unique names.

then you need to create 10 triggers similar to this:

Action: show layer

layer: the layer you want to show

when: timeline starts

object: the slide you are working on

click 'show conditions'

click the '+' icon


List: Variables

If: variable with random number in it

Operator: == Equal to

type: value

value: the value you want the random number to be when you want to show the layer you selected earlier in the trigger menu.

Here is a storyfile, I did not use a random number. However it shows the setup of the layers and triggers.
