Adding a click box for a pop up on a quiz page

Aug 18, 2009 8:08 AM


I would like to add a pop-up scenario review on a quiz page so that those doing the elearning can review the case history.  I have the file saved as a pdf and it allows it to pop-up on other pages of the learning module but I can't figure out how to get this to work on a quiz page.  This is the page I especially want them to have the information so that they can make an informed choice. Does anyone have a thought on how this can be done or what i need to do differently?  Thanks

    Hi Deb


    This will be a bit on the cheesy side, but as your name infers you are from Wisconsin, that shouldn't be a big deal, no?


    What you might do is to create a blank project sized at 100x100. Configure it with no preloader and no playback control. Then insert a Click Box that opens the PDF. Just insert the PDF file name and no path information. Publish that as a SWF.


    Now return to the project where you want to open the PDF from a question slide. Insert the SWF as an animation object. Perhaps layer the area over an image of a PDF or some other trigger to clue the user they may click.


    Give that a go and see if it works for you... Rick

    Excellent!! I have been trying to find a way to add on-demand audio to a quiz. You can't add a button or a click box to a quiz, so I was ready to settle for a rollover caption but I didn't like it.

    BINGO -- another captivate piece (or I guess I could have used Flash) with a button and audio. published to a simple swf and loaded as an animation. Now I even get the 3 stages of the button instead of a static graphic.


    LOVE IT!!!

    Thanks Captiv8r
