    Text Entry Box

    Refika K
      We have been experiencing the following problem in Captivate 2:
      We have created a simulation, which requires users to enter a text via
      text entry box. We defined all possible answers of the correct entry
      (letters all lowercase, uppercase or both) in "correct entries" area.
      However, after we publish and run the simulation, it hangs when the user
      enters the correct text having spaces at the beginning and end of the
      correct text. For example, if the correct answer is "Turkey". It does
      not accept " Turkey ". As a result, it does not jump to the next slide
      in the simulation and gives us incorrect message.

      We would be grateful if you could help us to solve our problem.

          Hi Refika K and welcome to our community

          As you have seen, Captivate has no way of stripping spaces from a term. It is totally literal and counts a space as one of the characters. If you would like to suggest to the developers that its behavior be modified to work in that way, you may do so by clicking here and completing the form you should find.

          Cheers... Rick

              There is no change in the text-entry box behavior in version 3, Refika K. On the other hand, using spaces can trigger a correct answer in version 2. Just configure the acceptable answers to include an entry with the spaces ... or am I missing something?? I just don't see a problem, so perhaps that is the case ... (?)
