Error when submitting a numericentry field with a value of 0
Oct 05, 2017
Hoping someone may be able to shed some light on a problem I have. I have a variable which I calculate during my project which I want to send to the LMS when the user finishes and exits.
I do this by setting a NumericEntry interaction to the value of my variable and submitting it. In my project this is all hidden from the user. This all works perfectly except for if the value of my variable is set to 0 (zero) in which case I get the 'you must complete the question before submitting' message. This causes all sorts of problems because the user can't even see a question, or get to it (by design).
I have attached an example to show the problem. You will see in the example that if you submit the value that has been put there by storyline you will get the message. If you click in the field and type 0 (zero) (or any other value) before submitting, you won't get the message. If on slide one you set the variable to anything other than zero, it also submits OK without displaying the message.
Hope this all makes sense. Any help would be appreciated.
