Custom slider trigger need

Greetings all!  I have an usual (at least for me) trigger need for a slider. First, there is a text field next to the slider that displays the value of the slider as the slider is moved up and down the scale (easy). HOWEVER, what I need now is a trigger that is activated only when the mouse is released and then the final value of the slider is evaluated. This can easily be done if using a Submit button, but my client doesn't want the learner to use the Submit button. He want's the evaluation to occur the instant the mouse is released.  The trick is that both the text field value tracker AND the mouse release trigger are needed.

Any clues? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Russell Lash

Hello Wendy - sorry for the delay in responding to your last post and example. Unfortunately, the example does not work. The 3 sentences on the top right that are supposed to display when the slider is "released" (mouse up), are displaying when the slider passes over that value with the mouse still down.

Thanks Wendy, but still no luck. Now the other function is not working, the tracking of the slider values as the slider is moving. Now you can see the problem I'm having. Because the Update setting for Slider 1 is set to "When learner releases" the variable of Slider 1 is not updated so slider 2 can't follow, and only gets updated when the mouse is released.

It is either one or the other, but not both at the same time UNLESS the Submit button is used (which the client doesn't want - but may have to give in somewhere, either don't track or use the Submit).

Thanks and cheers,
