Display the next step name from Creo Illustrate

Hi, 

 

Need advise for my problem regarding my concern on displaying the next step instruction from Creo Illustrate. I need Vuforia to display the current instruction and the next instruction when user click on button. For now, the current step instruction are being displayed, but now I have to display also the next instruction. 


Hope anyone can advise me on this matter. Really appreciate it!

Re: Display the next step name from Creo Illustrate

Hi,

 you can use the following JS:

var instruction = '';
$scope.$on('newStep', function(evt, arg) {
  instruction = arg

});
$scope.UpdateInstructions = function() 
{
  $scope.app.params.StepText = instruction; 
};
  1. Call  ‘UpdateInstructions’ from the ‘Play Started’ event of the model
  2.  You must have ‘StepText’ application parameter
  3. Bind ‘StepText’ to a label showing instructions on the UI

I hope that helps.

Re: Display the next step name from Creo Illustrate

That is a very helpful solution. But it only provide the step name and (current step / total steps)

Is there a way to read the value of the 'step_description' parameter from the .pvi file?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Display the next step name from Creo Illustrate

I guess it not feasible right now hence the .pvi is embedded in the PVZ file.

Easy way to accomplish this by far would be copy those description to an object/json outside of the PVZ for further usage.

 

Really looking forward that Vuforia Studio would have this capability someday, along with Annotations.
