I'd like to be able to auto-play a slideshow when a visitor lands on my home page, but then have it pause after a couple of slides and wait for them to proceed using the <Next> arrow. Is that possible?

Hi Mark,

Unfortunately this option is unavailable in the current version of the slideshow.

OK. That's fine. Is it possible to stop the show after a single run through all the slides? So I currently have it set to autoplay when the page loads. When it gets to the end, I'd like it to stop rather than restarting at the beginning. Can I do that?

So I never saw a response to my last question on this topic... is there a way to stop the slideshow after a single run through of the images?

Dear Mark,
You can use the behavior connector and do the following:
-Click on the last slide
-Click on the blue paperclip /to open the behavior connector/
-Choose "Control HTML5 Slideshow"
-Choose "when the image is displayed" and add the behavior
-Select "Pause" as a slideshow action

This will stop the slideshow when it reaches the last image.

Hi Teodor,

Thanks for your help. That works... sort of. The problem is that it uses an onMouseOver action which only seems to fire if the mouse is actually moving over the image when it appears on the screen. If the mouse hasn't moved since you started playing the slideshow, no joy. The slideshow just starts looping back through. I've tried using onLoad and that doesn't work either.

So, any suggestions? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Here's the code snippet:

<div class="dmxSlide" onMouseOver="dmxHTML5SlideshowAction('TGLB_Main','pause')">
<img src="./images/18.png" border="0" width="1024" height="768" alt="">

can the behavior connector be used to dynamically go to a specific record? I can't find the documentation on this.
