How can I get a name to populate in Certificate Widget?

Jul 9, 2012 1:15 PM



I am using Captivate 5.5.  I am trying to use the Certificate Widget which I pulled into my project.  How can I get a user name to populate in the first line?  I will be using a text-entry field to ask for the name and that is the name I want to print on the certificate. 


Also, I am passing the assessment with a score of 100% but on the Certificate it says 0% and Fail. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    To use this widget, do the following:

    • Insert a minimum of one question slide.
    • Insert a blank slide after the results slide.
    • Insert the CertificateWidget.swf file from the Widget panel in the inserted slide.
    • Choose a template and fill out the appropriate details, such as, course name, course duration, and the signature.

    When users take the quiz, a slide with a text entry box for the user name appears after the result slide. The users type their name in the box and click Submit to view the certificate. The certificate is then populated with the user name and other parameters that you chose while inserting the widget.

    I am having the same problem. I inserted the blank slide after the results slide and then put the widget in that blank slide.


    I also entered the information into the properties box. The only time the information actually came into the certificate was the very first time. The widget does prompt the use for their name but that only worked the first time. I was also not able to print.


    From what I see in the forum, the widget does not work and we have to create our own.


    I also do not see how the results slide helps determine if they see the certificate or not. If the person fails, they should not see the certificate but I don't find any place to set that up. I have not found these answers in the forum so far.
