Topic: Component 511 - loadNew AS bug?

Hello,

I'm assembling a multi chapter slideshow using the new v511 Flash component and noticed a potential bug.

I have multiple buttons (actually MC's with an onRelease function) that use soundslides.ss_loadNew("xxx"); to load a new slideshow. After the slideshow is loaded, the entire Soundslides interface (photos and navigation) disappears.

Testing the exact code using the previous component version works fine.

Can you do a quick test to ensure ss_loadNew works with the new component?

Thanks.

You indeed found a bug ... it happens on the second load for me.

I can get this fixed by Wednesday mid-morning (GMT -5).

That's great Joe.

Thanks for your excellent support.

By the way, it happens on the 2nd load for me as well.

I think I found another bug with the component. ;-)

It seems that if you try to advance the timeline PAST where the slideshow has buffered to, the slideshow disappears.

Give it a try. While the slideshow is buffering, drag the little timeline circle beyond where it's buffered to OR simply click on the timeline again beyond the buffer mark. The photos and interface should disappear.

Thanks Joe.

If you drag it past the buffered point ... there's nothing loaded so there's nothing to show.

Most linear media players allow you to advance past the buffered point then wait for the buffer to catch up.

What behavior did you expect in this case?

Re: Component 511 - loadNew AS bug?

Joe, I expected the same behaviour but what I got was the entire slideshow disappearing in the same fashion as what we experienced earlier. After advancing past the buffered point, both the photos and interface disappear (sometimes immediately and other times after a few seconds). Once it's broken, there's no way of viewing the slideshow. Happens every time for me.

Joe, I've sent you an email with a video clip screen capture demonstrating the problem.

Thanks.

Ok, that's not what I would expect either.  I've got time this morning to check it out.

Thanks again for the report and the great documentation.
