To test your work while editing it, Intuiface Composer embeds two instances of Intuiface Player: 1) Player for Windows, and 2) Player for Tablets/Kiosks. Each of these two Players is based on different technology: the former uses .NET, the latter uses HTML5.
Running the Player corresponding to your targeted device's operating system ensures the most accurate test of your project in Composer before deployment.
NOTE: Because Composer runs on the Windows operating system, setting Composer's Play Mode to use Player for Tablets/Kiosks results in only an approximation of actual experience performance. It is possible that some aspects of your experience will work in Play Mode but not on your targeted device. Always test your experience on the targeted device; never assume that flawless playback in Composer's Play Mode means it will be flawless elsewhere if using Player for Tablets/Kiosks.
The Player for Windows option, on the other hand, is identical to standalone Player for Windows. There is no difference.
Running Play Mode
To use Composer's Play Mode, click the triangular Play Mode button located at the top of Composer on the button ribbon. The default Player is Player for Windows.
When creating a new experience targeting a tablet or kiosk resolution, Composer will automatically configure Play Mode to use Player for Tablets/Kiosks.
To manually select the appropriate instance of Player for Composer's Play Mode, select the Project menu item then indicate your preferred Player:
- Use Player for Windows
- Use Player for Tablets/Kiosks
