Modified on Mon, 08 Jan 2018 at 09:07 AM

IMPORTANT: This feature is only supported on iOS and Android and must be bypassed if the asset is loaded to myINTERACT Desktop.


To force enable the back button in an asset that links to video files please implement the following script

<script type="text/javascript">
function forceEnableBackButton() {
document.location = "ni-action:enableback"
}
</script>

The HTML, ensure that you add this to the <body> tag

<body onload="forceEnableBackButton()">

Lastly ensure the file named nexti_metadata.plist is updated to include the below:

<key>property_html_showBackButton</key>
<string>YES</string>
