There are a number of ways to stop an event from playing.
Press the Escape Key
Select this option to allow you to stop a playing event by pressing the ‘Esc’ key on the keyboard. This is the default setting.
Press the Right Mouse Button
Select this option to allow you to stop a playing event by pressing the right mouse button.
Enter a 4 digit Password
You can enable a 4 digit password that can be entered on the keyboard to stop the event playing.
Clicking or touching screen corners
By enabling this option you can touch (or mouse click) on the screen corners with the following sequence of 4 touches: top left, top right, top left, top right to stop the event playing.
All these options can be found in the RightBooth Settings --> Security tab, which is accessed by clicking the Settings button on the RightBooth main window.
But what If you don't have a keyboard available?
Is there any way to stop the event running?
RightBooth includes the event Click actions: Stop and Exit
When either of these actions are activated, they will stop the event playing and return you to the RightBooth main window,
To enable this feature you must add the action to any item on one of the event screens. Here we describe how to achieve this.
From the RightBooth main window, click the Edit button to take you to the Screen Editor.
The following steps refer to the image below, and the red number labels on it...
Now return to the RightBooth main window and click the Play button to play your event. Then if you click on the newly added button, the event will immediately stop playing.
Hiding the Button
What if you don't want your users to see this Stop button, yet still be able to click on it?
Setting the button item to Opacity 0 causes it to become invisible, but it will still react to a click or a touch when the event is playing.
You could also reduce the size of the button and perhaps place it in the top left corner of the screen to prevent anyone from accidentally touching it.
