The "documentation" for the existing widgets or even how to make new widgets is crappy. Basically you are left to yourself to find out how to use the stock supplied widgets and make your own ;o)
I also tried the combobox widget, but in the end I just abandoned it. I need a drop-down list myself but ended up making it in Flash and importing it into Captivate as an animation. If you know Flash you can use the components to make a quick drop-down list.
Yeah, I'm in the process of learning flash, but hoping to find a quick solution for dropdown menus in the meantime. I might have to get someone more flash knowledgeable in our org to help me out in the meantime. Thanks for the answer, it seems like these forums are pretty dead compared to the other Adobe products.
I just hope I can find the answers quick enough, because our campus is determining what path we cant to use for content creation, and the entire UC system as a whole is researching what content creation systems to use for future coursework and integration into our LMS systems.
You need to deliberatley add the variable "supmat" to captivate using the Actions window. Now on chosing any item from the Combo-Box , write a script on a button which shall invoke an action and then do the intended action.
Let me know, if you need a sample project explaining the same.
I can also send you a mock up, but it wont be till (at least March 7th - O/S on holiday!). BUT, if you assign a variable to the ComboBox and use the OnExit Event you will be able to check the value using a series of conditional actions.
Any sample projects or details would be much appreciated.
Hi Highlander Hugh,
I have created a sample project(test.cp).
You can download it from:
try this sample project and please confirm whether this project addresses your issue.
Thanks for your example. I see where I was confused, I thought the action of selecting an item from the combbox alone was supposed to execute an action. I didn't realize all it does it select an item for the variable, and that another button must be put in to tie the advanced action to. What I might do, is setup the combobox and then have a smaller icon next to it that the user clicks on to actually go to the url they select.
I also was hoping to take a look at that example... can it be posted here? when I went to the link in Acrobat.com it was unavailable. Thanks!
