How to inactivate button until all shapes are visited
Jun 12, 2012
I am trying to force learners to interact with all shapes on a slide before the next button is activated. I've read a number of tutorials, including the following: http://community.articulate.com/forums/p/12791/76784.aspx#76784
Here's the situation: I have one slide with 5 shapes. Each of these shapes jumps to a different slide containing four layers. After the learner has clicked through all of the layers, the jumped-to slide redirects back to the original slide containing the five shapes. The original slide is set to resume its saved state. I want the user to have to click through all 5 shapes before the next button is activated.
I have assigned true/false variables to the slide for each shape and set them to false. Upon clicking the shape, I've included a trigger to change its corresponding variable to true. I then attached "AND" conditions to the next button, requiring that each shape be equal to true before jumping to the next slide. This did not work- the next button will not bring me to the next slide.
I then tried attaching visited conditions for each shape to the next button, but that didn't work either- the next button did nothing.
Does the fact that I'm jumping away from the slide with the clickable shapes reset the variables or conditions? Is there any way to make this do what I need to do? I just can't figure out why this isn't working. Thanks!
