Change State Using Variables
I need help figuring out how to change the state of a button using variables. I tried posting this earlier but it's been reported and isn't showing?? (I don't know why, if I did something wrong please let me know what!)
I'm working on a course that has a slide with a series of buttons to branch to one of eight slides. After you've viewed all the linked slides, you can continue to move forward in the course.
What I want is when you go to the corresponding slide and then return back to the original "fork", the state of the button changes to "viewed". Here is the main 'branch' slide. The eight icons around the wheel are the buttons:
This is what I want you to see when you return back to the main branch:
It's not working and I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. I did a similar thing in another course and it worked perfectly, but the buttons were taking you to various LAYERS, not separate slides. I cannot do that this time around because my client has notes they want visible in the sidebar menu and layers have to use the same notes as their base layer. So I had to build each of the eight processes on a separate slide and branch to them.
I have a variable named for each of the eight destination slides with the default value set to False.
On each of the eight linked slides, I have a trigger set to change the variable to True when the timeline starts on that slide. My other trigger is to return to the original branch (the wheel of buttons) when you press the "back button" I created.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!! :)
