  • Hi,

    I am using the Browser plugin to send and get data from an Adobe Captivate slide. The code I am using to set the data from the Captivate FO1 variable is correct as I have used it before. The get should be working also its the C2 instance variable object property I am unsure about. I'd appreciate some help with this.

    Here is the example code. The set is working but the get isn't showing up.

    "window.parent.cpAPIInterface.setVariableValue('FO1',1);";;;;;;;;;;;;;This works fine

    "this.runtime.textmmm.V1 = window.parent.cpAPIInterface.getVariableValue('FO2');";;;;;;;;;;;;;This isn't working at all.

  • This isn't the right forum to ask general Javascript language questions. If it's not specifically to do with the C2 Javascript SDK, then you probably want to ask on a site like StackOverflow.

  • Ashley hi,

    I am asking a C2 question here. Something I can't find on StackOverflow. I need to know how I communicate directly with a C2 Instanced variable using the Browser plugin. The textmmm.V1 is the variable I want to pass data to. Any help would be appreciated.

    You might trace the data type of private variables, they saves in an array object, so it could not wrote directly.

    A simple solution is - add an expression to export wrote value, then use action to write into instance's private variable.

  • So is that the same as the function that holds the array of variables. If so, doesn't that change on every runtime. Is it a requirement to do a "for loop" to find an var[] position of an instance variable.

    In editor, instance variables are indexed by a string name.

    In rumtime, instance variables are stored in an array (not a dictionary), the name-index info had been removed, even "for loop" could not get the variable back by name.


    There is another solution to have the name-index info.

  • So it's just given a random number and so on....bugger, I was hoping it was a bit more relatable to the editor name.

  • lukeo25

    Not a random number, it maps the names in sequence numbers (array indexes).

  • So is the position determined by a rule set at edit ie; the first object etc?
