How to disable "Next" button until all tabbed buttons have been visited

Jul 24, 2020

Dear Community,

I am using a template from eLearning Heroes' Downloads. I have disabled the "Next" button using a trigger but it does not become "Normal" even after I set the condition for it to be - after the tabbed buttons have all been visited. 

the goal is that only after all 5 buttons have been clicked (visited), the "Next" button becomes Normal. 

Appreciate your help.

Dear Matt,

Thanks for the tip! I did as you advised and it worked.

However, once I link those buttons out to another scene/slide, and learner returns to the slide by clicking the "Previous" button, the states of my button no longer stays visited. 

As a result, the "Next" button doesn't appear even if learner has gone through all 5 scenes. 

So I am back to square 1. Pls advise.

Have attached the file. Content not all in yet, so its only 7mb. Thanks.

Thanks for responding Lauren. I found an alternative solution via a separate thread by James Holt. Using true/false variables instead to control the behavior. 

The community support here is amazing.  Love it.

Perhaps due to recent updates, there seems to be an easier way to do this:

1. Add trigger to Disable/hide next button when timeline starts on base layer

2. Ensure all objects/tabs have Visited states

3. Add trigger to Set Next button to Normal, when the STATE of (select objects/tabs) is Visited.


This doesn't dictate the order in which they can view the objects but it won't let the learners proceed without viewing them all first.
