Launch Pad for Adobe Captivate
A dynamic HTML framework to display multiple Adobe Captivate movies
The Launch Pad for Adobe Captivate is a framework to deploy multiple Adobe Captivate movies within one web page.
Have you ever published a series of Adobe Captivate movies but then had to come up with some method to display them to your end-users in an effective manner?
The Launch Pad dynamically loads your published Captivate movies into a designated content area. You simply publish your movies to a designated folder and then edit the menu links.
The Launch Pad was specifically programmed to integrate with published Adobe Capitvate movies.
Tours of the Launch Pad
Here's some Captivate movies that provide walk-throughs of the Launch Pad:
||Launch Pad Overview|
||Launch Pad Folder/File Structure|
We've designed the Launch Pad to allow developers with technically savvy in HTML and CSS to customize the design and funcationality of the system. You can overhaul the page design, colors used for the menu items - up. over, and active states, CSS, fonts, etc. The Instruction Guide provides documentation on editing most elements of the page.
Create a folder for your project ( typically \My Documents\My Adobe Captivate Projects\MyProject ) and
copy the Launch Pad files into it.
||Publish your Captivate movies as Flash (.swf) files into the \flash folder.|
|Edit the menu items in the index.html file to link to your .swf files.|
Replace the logo graphic and edit the <title> tag.
Optionally, edit the CSS file to match your specific color scheme requirements.
Test the Launch Pad on your local PC in your browser.
Stage the files to production (copy files to web server).
The Launch Pad is compatible with:
The Launch Pad consists of the following elements:
- One XHTML 1.0 Transitional (doctype) web page
- Cascading Style Sheet (CSS 2.0)
