CU3ER - Previous Button: <prev_button>

XML location & structure

<cu3er> <settings> <prev_button> <defaults ... /> <tweenIn ... /> <tweenOut ... /> <tweenOver ... /> </ prev_button> </settings> </cu3er>


Navigation buttons, represented as graphic shapes, are used for navigating through slides. Include the node in order to display "Previous" navigation buttons in the user interface.

By clicking this button, you instruct CU3ER to perform 3D transitions and to show the previous defined slide in XML. Take a look at the following graphic, which displays possible scenarios for previous (navigation) button graphics with various round_corners settings:

The "Previous" button may be disabled when you are seeing the first slide before the last slide is loaded. CU3ER sets the buttons alpha transparency property to 0.15 and make the button non-clickable until the last slide has been loaded.

The "Previous" button may contain the following four nodes:

  1. <defaults />
    Node containing general attributes for previous button. Available attributes:

    round_corners = "topLeftRadius, topRightRadius, bottomLeftRadius, bottomRightRadius"

  2. <tweenIn />

    Transition in tween node - tweening properties for item appearance on stage: tweenIn

  3. <tweenOut />

    Transition out tween node - tweening properties for item disappearance from stage: tweenOut

  4. <tweenOver />

    Tween node defining "on mouse over" tween: tweenOver
