Is looping supported now? I'm tired of using the page load trick!

This seems like a functionality that should be added and needed. I would like it to integrate with the active panels to have looping images etc. while navigating the interface.

I am not sure if this feature is included in the upcoming release. I will let you know when I hear back from our product manager.

John,


Have you heard anything?

Unfortunately, I don't think the loop feature will be included in this upcoming release. You will have to wait a little longer. Sorry about that.

John, It has been at least two years since the topic was first brought up and nothing yet! I don't understand can we expedite this feature?

Solved - I think ...


Here's my loop scenario - screen has a set of circles that need to flash (like an alert). I tried the hide-pause-show-pause-reload trick but it seemed very bad. I also want to play an alarm beeping sound and dont want it to play over and over - so linking to same screen again wasn't a way for me.


Alright, I broke my head over this and solved it this way -


I added two input fields, made them completely transparent (no lines etc). Upon page load, I set focus on first text field. In the On-Focus-In event of textfield1, i hide the circles, pause and set focus on textfield2. In the On-Focus-In event of textfield2, I show the circles , pause and set focus on textfield1. And now I have a loop and my flashing circles forever without reloading the screen ! :)
