Disabling Next button failure
Nov 05, 2016
I want the NEXT button disabled until the user interacts with a slide element (text box). That text box has initial state of NORMAL and then SELECTED once it is, well, selected. By linking the state of the NEXT button to the state of the text box my intent is to have the NEXT button active if the user returns to the slide later because the slide is set to RESUME SAVED STATE which means the text box would be remembered as being SELECTED.
Slide triggers are:
1) Set NEXT button to disabled when state of text box is NORMAL
Text box triggers are:
2) Change state of text box to SELECTED when clicked
3) Change state of NEXT button to NORMAL when user clicks
However, the NEXT button is always active despite the fact that it's state is tied to the state of the text box.
I don't want the NEXT button tied to the timeline because when the user returns to the slide later the timeline will reset the NEXT button to disabled even if the slide is set to RESUME SAVED STATE (feature request submitted to fix that programming). In my mind the logic is sound. Text box is initially NORMAL when the slide starts therefore the NEXT button would be disabled. When the text box is selected, it state changes to SELECTED and the NEXT button would then become active but it's not working that way.
I have attached a sample for review. The links won't work because they go to a document behind our firewall. But the triggers would still work.
Help, I have 6 slides that all need to behave this way.
