I made a 45-slide course in Flash 8 using slides, and have
put some learning interactions throughout to check knowledge before
moving on. The documentation says that I should select navigation
Off in the component inspector, but then there's nothing that keeps
the user from skipping the interaction and just going to the next
slide. If I select Navigation On, it doesn't work.
The navigation in the Quiz template works great, but that's
not slide-based and I don't know what to copy over into my
presentation to make it work there, or where to put it. (On the
master slide, on every slide, where?)
OR - I can just manually do it by disabling the Next button
until the user enters something and checks it, but where in the
learning interaction code can I find the part where "user checks
result," and how to pull that check into the button behavior?
I've spent hours and hours looking for answers, and can see
that others have had similar problems but nobody has answered them.
Resolved - mostly:
1. Navigation for the learning interactions won't work in a
slide presentation without making changes to section 4-1 in the
superclass. Replace every reference to "frame" nav with "slide"
2. I put nav buttons on every slide instead of just the
master slide and assigned behaviors for the first, last, and
previous (but not next) buttons.
3. Enabled navigation in the component inspector to next
slide (which takes care of slides that have learning interactions
4. For slides that don't have learning interactions on them,
I added a gotoNextSlide behavior to the next button.
It's probably not the best way to do this - I tried to put
the buttons on the master slide and use a flag to enable or disable
the next button, but I couldn't get it to work.
