Media Action Menus


These pull-out menus appear when you select a media action in the Add an Action menu or click an existing action block in the Events & Actions panel.

The Stop Video, Stop Background Music, and Stop Sound Effect action menus have only one field, where you select the media asset to be stopped.

Depending on the action timing settings in the Events & Actions panel, the Play Video, Play Background Music, and Play Sound Effect action menus may have the following options.

Note: In the gesture Properties, media action menus appear as action blocks under the selected gesture. See Gesture Actions and Transitions.
