Power Apps | Variables exercise | Use a variable to display a message if a user pauses a video
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise if you attend the course listed below!
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
The idea behind this message is to display a label when a user presses paws on the video they are watching:
When your users paws the video, a message should appear asking them to press play to resume it.
Although this uses a multimedia file, don't worry - you don't need to know anything about these (the exercise will guide you through).
Start by creating a new app called Stop that cat. Add a video:
Choose this Insert menu option to add a video player control.
Now add the video in the folder shown at the start of this exercise to this video control:
Choose this option to add a media file (in this case a short video of Annie, the cat).
Everything will now be controlled by a variable called IfShowLabel which we'll create and set. Set these properties:
|The video player control||OnPause||An action to set the value of this variable to true|
|The video player control||OnStart||An action to set the value of this variable to false|
|The label||Visible||The value of your variable|
When you run the app, pausing the video should display your message, and restarting it should hide it!
The video only lasts 7 seconds, and wouldn't win any awards.
When you've finished testing your app, save it and close it down.
