Class s7sdk.common.PlayPauseButton

Extends s7sdk.common.Button, s7sdk.common.TwoStateButton.

The PlayPauseButton is a two state button that is typically used for toggling between playing (or replaying) and pausing of the video playback in the VideoPlayer component. This component toggles between the play (or replay) and pause icons depending on the selected state and enableReplay() API call. The selected state is automatically changed when user clicks/taps on the button. Alternatively, the state can be changed through setSelected() API. In addition enableReplay() method controls the icon displayed in selected state, it can be either "play" or "replay" icon.

The component can be added to ControlBar and grouped with other video UI components.

Currently this component does not support any modifiers.

Defining the Appearance using CSS

You can define the appearance of the PlayPauseButton component using CSS rules. All HTML5 Viewer SDK components use class selectors for styling. You can style the body of the PlayPauseButton component by using the .s7playpausebutton class selector. The styles that are associated with this class selector are applied to all instances of the PlayPauseButton component. You can style particular instances by prefixing the class rule with the instance #id. For example, styling rules for #myComp.s7playpausebutton are applied only to the particular PlayPauseButton instance.

CSS ClassAttribute SelectorDescription
.s7playpausebuttonselected=[true|false] state=[up|over|down|disabled] replay=[true|false]Define appearance of the PlayPauseButton component. Each state can be styled independently.
.s7tooltip(None)A global class selector that defines appearance for the tooltips. To disable tooltips set the display style to none.

Localizable Symbols

PlayPauseButton also has text symbols that you can localize either in a preset or in the viewer page though the mechanisms provided by the ParameterManager. For more information on localization consult the ParameterManager API documentation and HTML5 Viewers SDK User Guide.

PlayPauseButton.TOOLTIP_SELECTEDTooltip for selected button state
PlayPauseButton.TOOLTIP_UNSELECTEDTooltip for unselected button state
PlayPauseButton.TOOLTIP_REPLAYTooltip for replay button state

Example Code

This example demonstrates how to use the PlayPauseButton component in a simple video viewer. In this example a Container object, a VideoPlayer object, and PlayPauseButton object are created. Every time a user clicks the button, the VideoPlayer playback starts or pauses. The code below does the following:

  1. The Scene7 HTML5 SDK is linked to the page and the required s7sdk components are included in the document head.
  2. The s7sdk.Util.init() method is called to initialize the SDK.
  3. A ParameterManager object is created to handle component modifiers for the viewer.
  4. An initViewer() function is defined. This function initializes several modifiers (hard coded for example purposes), then creates the component objects required for this simple example. The initViewer() function also adds event listeners that designate functions to handle relevant component events (which might be dispatched by the components as a result of user interactions, changes in a component's state, etc.).
  5. Handler functions are defined to respond to the component event listeners added in the initViewer() function.
  6. An event listener is added to the ParameterManager object that designates the initViewer() function as the handler to call when the Scene7 SDK is loaded and ready.
  7. Finally, the init() method is called on the ParameterManager object to start the viewer.
