Drop Down menu choice filling a variable value

Dec 08, 2022

I am working on creating a website simulation and have created a drop down menu that has a number of different choices.  I would like the choice the user select to populate a text variable.  Currently I have created a trigger for each choice to populate the variable when selected.  Just wondering if there is an easier way.

I think you found the easiest way. (At least, without using outside programming such as JavaScript.)

If there were only 2 choices, you could use one trigger with the new if-then-else feature (https://articulate.com/support/article/Storyline-360-Conditional-Trigger-Enhancements ). But with more than 2 choices, I'd say it's best to use a separate trigger to populate each variable.
