I’d do it by holding an array of coordinates, and looping through that using the interaction icon to trap the completes, incrementing your index, and re-animating See attached. From: xerte-bounces at lists.nottingham.ac.uk [mailto:xerte-bounces at lists.nottingham.ac.uk] On Behalf Of Dave Burnett

Trying to solve that posters animation issue. A loop would have been handy.Animate tonext pageAnimate froloop. It's trying to demonstrate say, Brownian motion of atoms.So a couple hundred individual drawn items being animated. So what's the easy way I'm blind to?  From: Julian.Tenney at nottingham.ac.uk

Subject: [Xerte] Re: Decision icon repeat  "No, if you have 10 children and repeat is 3, you will loop through three children and then exit, not 10 children three times and then exit," We have a semantic difference.I don't see showing icon 1 then 2 then 3 as "looping"I see passing through the decision icon and repeating the above as looping.At least, that is how AW functioned. I'm sure I did this in the past.But maybe I was in a fever?It's like distant ship's smoke on the horizon. From: Julian.Tenney at nottingham.ac.uk

Subject: [Xerte] Re: Decision icon repeatNot sure. It works the way it has for the last 5 years though. Maybe the loops were done by creating the children dynamically protoPage style?

So it does differ from AW then?And then RepCount is a different var as well then? I am positive I have had it operate a s a looping structure in the past.  From: Julian.Tenney at nottingham.ac.uk

Subject: [Xerte] Re: Decision icon repeat Hi Jonathan.Thanks for looking in to that. The issue is that in Authorware, which Julian based the flow structure of Xerte on, setting a decision icons repeat property meant it would loop through that decision icon and all attached icons that specified number of times. It would essentially repeat the entire attached sequence of icons x times. I know I had this issue a couple years back, and the solution was a bit obtuse, but I can't remember it or track it down in the archives. Dave Date: Mon, 3 Dec 2012 14:05:23 +0000
