I love Storyline variables. Which might come as a surprise if you know me, because I am SO not a programmer! But that's the cool thing about Storyline—variables and other concepts that used to feel way above my head are now actually really easy and <gasp> fun if you use Storyline. Even cooler is the fact that variables can be great tools for making a course more interactive and responsive to your learners.

Check out the example below. It's a simple demo that was shared in a forum conversation with fellow community member Anne England. Anne wanted to create a seek-and-find interaction in which a visible counter shows learners how many correct objects they've found so far. Storyline variables to the rescue! By using a number variable and just a few simple triggers, you can easily create a tally to keep track of how many items the learner has clicked.

Or, if you have a project where you think variables might be useful but you're not sure how to incorporate them, post your questions in the Storyline forum and let the community help you out!

I have used this tutorial to set up a variable on a slide where I would like the "Click NEXT to continue" layer to appear only after the learner has clicked seven objects. I set up each object to have a Normal and Visited state. Pretty much followed the tutorial. Trouble is when I give my variable count the number 7, my "click NEXT" layer never appears. If I give it a count value of 6, my "Click NEXT" layer appears on the first click. I'm sure it is something simple. Would anyone mind taking a look?
