1000 - Is there something in Authorware like UPDATESTAGE in Director?

by - Joseph Ganci

Is there a method in AW that corresponds to Director's UPDATESTAGE?

If not, do any work-arounds exist?

If you mean you want to make sure that everything is up to date in the presentation window, such as making sure transitions have finished, you can accomplish this with a simple short Wait icon, even one that is set to 0.0001 seconds. This forces Authorware to finish updating everything in the presentation window before it goes on to the next icon. If you mean you want to make sure that expressions and variables in the presentation window are always updated to their current value, check the Update Displayed Variable checkbox in the icon properties of the Display and Interaction icons in question.
