Changing the state of a hidden button to visible

Good day. I am trying to finish a course in storyline but I am having a real great challenge about enabling a button.

That "submit" button should only appear when the course taker is done typing his/her answers on the boxes provided. I am really having difficulties doing it. I would really appreciate it if someone would share how to do it or if it is possible in storyline. Thanks.

Hi Vince,

I don't know if there is a more elegant way to accomplish what you are trying to do, but I have done so using the text entry fields to change the state of some off-screen shapes from hidden to normal first and using these state changes to control the state of your submit button.

Basically, I have added an off-screen shape for each response and set the initial state to hidden. I have then added a trigger to change the state of each hidden shape to normal when the control loses focus on the the respective text entry. Finally, I have added a trigger to change the state of the submit button to normal when the state of all of the hidden shapes is normal.

I attach a very rough draft that hopefully will make my explanation clearer - I hope it helps!
