Is it possible to display two drag items at a time in a freeform drag and drop interaction?

Jun 01, 2016

I would like to create a freeform drag and drop interaction with multiple drag items, but I want only two images to be displayed at a time.  The learner will drag each image to the correct drop locations.  Once Submit is clicked and feedback is displayed, I would like for the two images to disappear and for two new images to take their place.  Is it possible to make this happen on one slide, or will I have to create a new slide for each interaction?

You should be able to do this by having some custom buttons & triggers on your slide.

  • Create all your objects and set up Drop Correct & Drop Incorrect states on everything where the items disappear within those states.
  • Set initial state of all but the first ones to be hidden
  • Set triggers on a custom button (not your final submit button) to change the states of the objects to drop correct/incorrect if they are placed appropriately
  • Set triggers to change the states of the next two items to normal when the previous ones are drop correct or incorrect
  • Rinse and repeat as many times as required
  • On the last pair make the custom button disappear and your proper submit button appear
  • Clicking submit should use the drop stats to assess your answer.

I've not actually tried to build this but In my head it feels like it should work. I hope you are successful with your attempt!
