Booting script

function ocOnAppLoaded() {
    player = icCreatePlayer('_icplayer');
    player.load('pages/main.xml', parseInt(location));

    scorm = getScorm();
    var result = scorm.initializeScormCommunication(window);
    if (result === false) {
        scorm = getScorm_1_2();
    var savedState = scorm.loadState();
    if (savedState) {
    var location = scorm.loadLocation();
    if (location === false) {
        location = '0';


This part of a script is required to load a lesson with configuration written in main.xml file. The second part of the script that comes after the 3 dots represents the SCORM communication.

function doUnload() {
    var end = new Date().getTime();

    // This ensures that Player knows to update score before leaving page, event for score type FIRST.
    if (player.hasOwnProperty('forceScoreUpdate')) {

    var ps = player.getPlayerServices();
    var utils = new PlayerUtils(player);
    var presentation = utils.getPresentation();
    var score = utils.getPresentationScore(presentation);
    for(var i = 0; i < score.paginatedResult.length; i++){
        var s = score.paginatedResult[i];
        scorm.setPageName(i, 'Page_' + s.page_number);
        scorm.setPageMinScore(i, 0);
        scorm.setPageMaxScore(i, 1);
        scorm.setPageRawScore(i, s.score);
        scorm.setPageScaledScore(i, s.score);

    var _rawscore = score.scaledScore * 100;
    var rawscore = Math.round(_rawscore);

    scorm.setSessionTime(end - start);

The scorm communication is used in doUnload function which sends the lesson state and score before closing the lesson.
