I think you may find that you need to have a more sophisticated On Success action set up for each clickbox.
Could you give us a bit more information about what it is you're trying to accomplish?
What do you want to happen when you "disable" an option?
How have you set the number of attempts? Infinite or a finite number?
Using clickboxes will pause the movie slide. How have you prevented the slide from continuing to play so that the user still might have a chance to click the other option and find out that it's disabled?
Thanks for the reply. I'll try to be more specific.
What I want to happen is when one click box is checked the other click box doesn't work so the success text doesn't appear. I had the attempts set to infinite and then to one and it didn't seem to make a difference.
I've also set up Back and Next clickboxes at the bottom of the screen to get to the next slide. The project is a converted PowerPoint presentation that's an ethics tutorial, so I have a couple of scenarios where I'd like them to choose if something is allowed or not. I made buttons in PowerPoint and just have a clickbox over the top of each one and then the success text below in an empty part of the slide.
I thought I'd post how I figured this out in case anyone else has the same question. The problem seemed to be the success captions, so I took them out and used text boxes instead with "Not Visible" selected. Then I created an Advanced Action to Show the Correct answer and Hide the Click box for the other option: click Yes, and hide No, etc. The one thing I can't figure out now is how to have the slide refresh if someone wants to go back. I have infinite attempts set, but when I go back to the slide a second time, it still shows with the first thing I did. I can't go back and choose the other option. Not a deal breaker for me, but it would be nice. Anyone have any ideas?
You will have to create another advanced action to be triggered when (re-)entering the slide, so that everything is enabled again, or hidden or disabled. This action will be executed every time you re-enter the slide. I call it an 'initalizing' action.
This is just what I needed. It took a little bit for me to figure out what you were getting
at (I haven't been using Captivate for very long), but it worked. Thanks so much!
Can I disable a click box within its own advanced action? I'll just explain the context...I want the click box to be available only for one successful click. Once it has been clicked, I want to disable it. The advanced action for this click box consists of a few variables being set, and some captions displayed or hidden. So can i include a disable command for this click box here itself (ie., within its own 'On success' advanced action)?
No problem, have done so multiple times.
Thanks.That's a big help. I wasn't sure that was happening. Now I need to
check the rest of my logic to find why the program is not behaving as it
Sorry about the delayed response (I was on vacation).
