Just wondering if you have a snazzy suggestion on how I could insert a functioning calculator in a Storyline slide. I don't think a webobject would work for me as I need to make my content available for offline viewing.

I'm not certain if Eric is still subscribed to this thread, but you may want to send him a private message to see if he's done anything else in the way of this calculator.

The calculator's included at the top of this thread are the ones I normally point to, and I haven't seen one with a decimal point set up, but I hope that if there's a community member who has created one they'll be able to share it here with you!

Hey everyone, I think I've finally cracked the problem of allowing decimal entries using Dave Mozaelous' design that was shared above. Check out my newest version on the other thread I started here. It allows keyboard entry and decimal entry (up to the hundredths place).

If you are looking for a flash only calculator, be sure to check www.canpol.com/flash/kalkulator.swf as it may be exactly what you are looking for. You will need to obtain permission to use from the author though (and I have no clue who they are)...

Just posted this and saw a few other posts about calculators... so re-posting.

We have noticed a lack of calculators out there. A few of the examples out there don't calculate the decimal point correctly once calculated. If you want to create a calculator that has decimal places or +/-, before you do any calculations, you have to turn the number into a whole number. Multiply by -1 if the number is less than 0, and you have to keep track of your decimal place, multiply accordingly (if one decimal place, multiply by 10, two, multiply by 100), then divide by that same number and multiply by -1 again. It is mostly about keeping track.

This version should do the job. We have put this in our freebies at eLearning Locker where it will stay for about a week. It is normally part of the paid subscription, so please download it and use it as you like!

I'm hoping to revive an old thread here. The course we are building requires a scientific calculator that includes a fractions. The Windows calculator does not allow us to perform this function.

Does anyone know of a good scientific calculator application?

This does not have to be embedded in the Storyline file.

I have looked online and there are a tonne of options. I was hoping that someone in this fine community could actually recommend one. Hey, maybe a future plugin for Storyline from Articulate? :)

Hi Deepak - I'm not sure that Eric is still subscribed here. That response is quite dated. If that example does not work for you, you may want to try one of the others shared here.

Hey Isa,

Is this what you are looking for: http://www.articulatetest.com/Calculator/story.html

It was developed during the beta.

@Dave Mozaelous - Thanks for developing this!!

bettercalculator.storyHi Isa,

Sounds like you might want to create (or find) a Flash-based calculator app that you can insert.

Here are some hits from a quick search on building one yourself...

I'm sure there are some finished ones that can be downloaded as well.

Hope that helps,

Bob

Glad Eric had a copy of Dave's calculator this will not work with decimals though

Wow - ya'll are better than PB&J!

thanks guys!

That looks really great...

Do you know if there were some adds since 2012? meaning, implement decimals on that awesome calculator...

I have added a Flash file...it could be help others users,

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the update - although the link doesn't open up a valid page for me. I found your thread here, so I've included a new link.

Thanks for catching that, Ashley,

I've fixed the link in the message above.

No problem Robert!

Thanks Robert, looks awesome!!

BTW - Eric, thanks for posting your calculator as well.

Hi Andrew!

Not a question I believe I've seen in the forums and hopefully someone will be able to chime in and assist. Seems there are a few online options at first glance in Google search.

I have looked online and there are a tonne of options. I was hoping that someone in this fine community could actually recommend one. Hey, maybe a future plugin for Storyline from Articulate? :)

I understand wanting to refine that selection for sure :)

You are always welcome to share your thoughts with our product development team here Andrew.

It's a great product already, but always room for improvement. Thanks for the link.

i think this is allowing only two numbers to calculate

i mean if i add 2 + 3 the answer is 5

If i add 1 + 2 +3 the answer is again 5
