Example files: Generating a certificate from Storyline
May 09, 2012
This example demonstrates how you can take user input and generate a certificate for printing. Any Storyline variable or score can be used to generate the output. The file and file add-ins are both simple and straight forward. This will only work in the Flash based output. This will not work in the iOS output or HTML5.
To replicate this on your end:
1) Modify the story file to your liking.
2) Extract the add-in zip file above (certificate.html and certificateBG.gif)
3) Copy these two files into your published output directory. You'll need to do this each time you publish.
This is a really basic example. You really can do quite a bit with this including adding a print button, extra fields, collecting values from the LMS like the user's first and last name.
** I noticed a bug when playing with this file setup. I initially thought I would be able to include the certificate files as resources to avoid copy / paste surgery after publish. Unfortunately, Storyline mangled the HTML file on publish. Will be submitting this as a bug.
