Native Storyline calculator (no Flash)

Mar 23, 2014

Hi everyone, my learners will need a calculator in my courses, and I was hoping to find a solution that doesn't rely on a Flash. I was inspired by a project called BetterCalculator that I found on another thread that was originally developed by Dave Mozealous. Unfortunately, that calculator didn't accept decimals - only whole numbers. Also, having to click everything on screen is a bit of a chore, so I thought allowing keyboard entry would be cool too. 

Well, here's a working demo of the newest iteration of Dave's calculator, and I've attached the Storyline project for you to adapt/improve as needed. 

It includes both keyboard entry and decimal entry (up to 2 decimal places). I hope this is helpful.

Hi Timothy,

I took a look at the calculator that Ren shared above from Charles.

It looks like all the actions are set when clicking buttons on the calculator slide, but not when using any keyboard actions.

The clear total and clear sub-total buttons are on the calculator. If you want the calculator to work with keyboard button presses, you will need to add these additional triggers as well.

Hopefully, someone in the community will be able to pop in and help with your design needs.
