Multi-Variable Variables

Feb 05, 2015

I am trying to a dynamic interaction that will eventually use mutliple sliders.

What I want to create is that once Sliders A, B, and C reach set ranges then a final set action will happen.

I have tried two ways of accomplishing this: "Slider Moves" and "Variables," which will set one or more variables to "True" from "False" once the sliders reach the set ranges. To this point can I have been successful in making these slider moves and variables work and resulting in what I want, but with on major problem: you have to do them in a set precise order.

So the question: How do I accomplish my desired final task, but remove the set ordering of it all? I do not want to discourage students who might have the settings on each slider correct, but are not being given the correct feedback because they didn't perform in a perfect set order. I want a dynamic failure/success instant reaction modle.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Thanks for the help Wendy.

Unfortunately your file has the same issues as mine. The layer showing is conditional on completing the steps in the exact correct order. I am trying to make it more dynamic where ordering is not a condition of a variable and therefore a layer showing.

The eventual goal is to have multiple steps/ranges on three or more sliders and as any slider moves, it will show a new layer. Eg. If I change the value of slider one by one step then this happens. Changing it another leads to a different result. While at the same time I can then change another slider resulting in a completely different series of possible resolutions.

But as I said, mine and yours have the same issues. If you do not move the right slider last then the variable never changes.

So Emily, any additional help would be appreciated.
