Cp 4 Button Contingencies

Oct 6, 2011 7:47 AM

I'm using Captivate 4 to build a course that has a screen with 4 click boxes and I don't want the user to continue until they have clicked all 4 in any order. I'd like to add a button with a contingency that it does not show until after all four boxes have been clicked. Can I do this?

    Yes, you can. I have explained that for CP5 (easier UI for advanced actions) in this blog post:


    Template for reusing script


    It is not exactly the same situation but will tell you how to show the button when all click boxes have been clicked. You'll have to translate the advanced action, but it is possible in CP4.


    What has to happen when a click box is clicked? Because perhaps you'll have to rewind the playhead to prevent it moving on after a CB has been clicked (which normally releases the playhead). This can be done with another advanced action:

    Assign rdcmndGotoFrame with rdinfoCurrentFrame

    Perhaps someone else found an easier way, those actions in the template were rather simple. Sorry,

    Sorry, you spoilt my day. I'm just a user like you, not from Adobe at all, trying to help other users. I spent a lot of time trying to help other users, published articles and blog posts.

    Think I will quit after such a reaction
