Creating your own navigation buttons, and Javascript

I have been working on creating my own navigation buttons and template. I want to use more traditional forward, back and exit buttons. With PowerPoint actions, the forward and back buttons work well. The Exit button is not as easy. I downloaded someone's Exit button SWF, but I am concerned about losing tracking information between the course and the LMS. I want to run a Javascript command when the user clicks the Exit button. This command [javascript:LMSCommit();] will force sending this info to the LMS.

I am not sure how to insert a javascript command in Articulate. Can anyone help?

Hi Kevin,

Questions like this come up here every so often, and while there may be several answers, the one we settled on involves Flash.

For an exit button, we simply inserted a small SWF movie that makes the javascript call upon clicking.

Here is a link that describes it with just touch of tech talk... http://blog.codefidelity.com/?p=15

Hope this helps,
