Change the state of Next button on the player?


I'm working on an e-learning project where the learner is allowed to proceed to the next slide only when she / he viewed all of the content on that slide. I managed to set up conditions with variables ( Next is only working when the learner clicked all of the buttons...etc) My problem is that there is no Inactive / Hidden state for the Next button so it can be very misleading for the learner why the button is not working. 

The other solution I have come up with to disable the Next button and put it inside the slides...But I don't think it is a 100% solution. 

You can view here my sample about the problem\public\UNHCR_nav\story.html 

Is there any other prerequisities configuration possibility to automating the process of disabling / enabling next button on the engine?

Or any ideas, suggestions?

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Mariann,

You can control the behaviour of the Next button via Triggers Variables and Conditions.

Set up a Variable such as "all slides viewed" = False.

Have it change to true when all sections complete and assign a condition to the Next button to go to next slide when this variable = True.

You can also set up a layer that says "Please view all the slide content before pressing Next", and show via Conditions and variables. There are a number of ways to do all of this.
