How to use Keystroke - ie. SPACEBAR - to press Next button?

May 02, 2021

Hi everybody.

I'm an elearning curious at his first demo course and I've got quite a dumb question: how can I set one key on the keyboard - SPACEBAR for example - to act as the mouse clicking on the NEXT button of the player?

I tried to use triggers this way: jump to next slide "when" with "user presses" SPACEBAR but the field "object  after clicking on [this slide]" is mandatory, and this creates a lot of problems as I'm assuming to not use mouse at all - and then clicking on the slide - if I want to proceed only with keyboard...


thank you!

Hi, Francesco, and welcome to E-Learning Heroes! ✨

Thank you for reaching out! 

The setting after clicking on is just making sure the user is on the correct slide\object, but it does not necessarily mean a mouse click. Even when using a keyboard and the tab key to move through the slide, it will count as after clicking on.

The trigger below will accomplish what you need:
