Captivate doesn't offer this functionality natively. You (and others) may wish to alert the developers to the need for this by clicking here.
I do have in my possession a couple of files that do this. Another contributor here created them at one point and offered them for download. Unfortunately I have no idea as to who that was so I can properly attribute credit. If you shoot me an offline message, I'll be happy to send them along. Send to captiv8r (at) kc (dot) rr (dot) com.
Rick to the rescue again. With the announcement last week of Authorware no longer being developed, I'm back and even more interested in Captivate.
I'll make that recommendation right now. And I'll email you too. I'm so happy to have models to learn from (and use again and again!)
An option for you is to create a Flash movie that performs a text input, whose value you assign to a variable in ActionScript. Import that movie into Captivate. Then, insert another Flash movie that reads/displays/processes that variable. It's a little tricky, because you have the Flash movie that reads the variable accesses something like 4x roots levels in the ActionScript to get to the proper level. Not my area of expertise, but that's my suggestion :)
BTW: I'm an Authorware developer too (since version 3).
The files created in flash did the trick. I don't have flash, let alone know how to use it, but the files that Captiv8r sent worked like a charm. Great idea to put them on the exchange--I think a lot of people could make use of them.
