FREEBIE: Automatic Calculation
Feb 29, 2016
I needed to create a simple calculator that could calculate the following equation:
a + 2b + 3c = x
a, b, and c would be input by the user. I wanted my storyline project to give me the value of x. As a final requirement, I wanted the storyline file to calculate this automatically. I did not want to use a "Submit" or "Calculate" button.
This was initially a struggle because I was trying to use the "control uses focus" trigger. Once I shifted to "When the Variable changes" as a trigger, I was able to get the calculator working. This was a bit tricky for me to get set up. Just in case anyone else wanted to look into something like this, I thought I would attach my storyline file. I've left a text box on the slide that I used for debugging.
I hope this is something that the community finds useful.
