Slide Show


This RCO provides what could be described as interactive PowerPoint. It's like a slide show presentation, except each slide can have image loops with interactive controls such as VCR-like buttons and tracing.

Each slide is specified independently in the XML configuration file, so you can mix-and-match functionality as desired. There is no hard limit on the number of slides you can have. The best way to get an idea for how this RCO works is to try the Example usage link.

The sample XML file provided below must be populated with appropriate data and placed in the same location as the HTML file used to access and present this RCO.
