MaplePlayer Questions and Posts

These are Posts and Questions associated with the product, MaplePlayer

I have written a maple-code that is visualizing cycles or periods of inverse numbers in any base in a coloured plot.

For example 1/13=0,76923 076923 ... (so period-lenght is 6, the cycle-digits are visualized)

Now I would like to run the Maple Code wich produces the plot (via display-comand) on an ipad.

The ipad will be located in a museum or galerie. In the most easily way the user just touch a button on the ipad-screen and the maple-code produces a random plot which is displayed. Later some choosable parameters for the plot are added.

I have make some tests with embedded components in Maple.

So my idea is to do this with maple-player. I read about Maple Player features:

- Interact with applications that make use of embedded components, such as sliders, buttons, and math entry boxes. Maple will perform the computations and display updated results and visualizations


1) how do I run Maple code in Maple Player (a little example with a button- and a plot-component will help)

2) do I need to upgrade Maple 2021  to do that ?

3) What does a mapleplayer license cost for each ipad ?

Thanks for support :)

Any idea of how to import necessary libraries for use in Maple Player?

With each new release of Maple Player, there are more and more restrictions. Tell me, please (in the latest release 2020.1) the ability to copy data from the Maple Player window was removed? (Ctrl+C)? And how do I find out all the restrictions?

The following worksheet was run from my desktop and finds both currentdir() and interface(worksheetdir) to be "C:\Users\dharr\Desktop" (either from opening it within Maple 2017 or double-clicking on it). The startup code is


But if I load it from Maple Player 2018, then both currentdir() and interface(worksheetdir) are "c:\program files\maple player".

It means an interactive application that runs in Maple won't run in Maple Player.

Is this a bug or deliberate strategy to make it harder to open datafiles within Maple Player?

(Can't load the worksheet contents right now)


I'm really after a simple workaround for a file open dialog with embedded components - any suggestions?

I am preparing a Slideshow with Maple 2018.2
I want to use a small laptop to do the presentation with MaplePlayer 2018.1 without purchasing and installing the hole stuff.

The presentation contains some 3d animated plots controlled by some DocumentTools,Components,Button components just
to start and stop the animations during my talk.

The Player dont appear to run (!!!)  the worksheet at startup, so the Plot components dont get an identity and the Button components dont get the Plot components identity neither to set their "play" property. As a consequence Button components appear useless.

Is there any mean to make this work?


Hi folks,

I've just now installed Maple player, and I find it crashes immediately when I run it:

The operating system is CentOS 7 (64 bit).   Any idea how I can fix this?
