Ideal for trade shows…
If you want to use a Twixl-based app in a "kiosk" type of environment, e.g. for iPads on display at a trade show, you may want to integrate an inactivity timer that returns to a certain start situation after being idle for a while. If you have trade show visitors, then you can decide that after a specified amount of idle time, the publication needs to return to the starting page, to make sure a new visitor doesn't get lost…
Configuring a timer consists of two things:
- set a timeout interval (in seconds)
- define an action URL to be triggered on time-out
By default the timeout interval in a build setting will be set to "0", i.e. disabled.
The URL action to be triggered can use custom URL schemes for navigation in a Twixl publication. If you want to integrate a timer in a kiosk app, you can also use the URL:
This will make sure the app returns to the store overview window after timeout.
You can also use the following URL schemes to pause/remuse playback of background music:
