Can I require a user to choose hotspots in a correct sequence?

Apr 25, 2014

I need to develop an "exercise" where the user is viewing items (numbers)  in random order. They need to click on the numbersin the correct sequence. Can that be done with hotspots?  Or is there a better way?  Also, at the end of the time limit, they either need to input the hightest number they reached or if there is a way for the program to count for them, that would be even better.  Here is the screen they will be viewing.

These were very helpful. Thank you.  As I was pondering how to get the slide to work on a timer, I discovered a hybrid solution.  I set my slide timeline to 30 seconds.  Then, instead of hotspots, I used shapes with 100% transparency and started them in the hidden position.  When the user clicks #1,  the trigger changes the state of #2 to normal and #1 to hidden in sequence to #49.  Then I made a final layer that displays the total number found at the end of the timeline.  (I used Garth's sample for the variable and the count). 

Success!  Thank you!!

I am attaching the file here.  Our security system thinks there is sensitive information in the file, even though there isn't, so it encrypts the file when sent by e-mail. (Apparently anytime there are at least 9 numbers, it thinks it's a SSN!)  Just an aside: The sound quality is not good because we reccorded "on site" in an office, so there is a lot of background noise.
