Ok, this one's A BIT tricky...
Jul 14, 2013
I have been banging my head against the wall for the past 3 days trying to find a way to do the following.
I need to implement a timer function (both count-up & count-down) and also save the count-up timer to resume from where it left of if a question slide is revisited.
The current count-up timer variable values do not reset to zero (although the triggers are right there in the base layer of the master slide). As a result, when visiting question 2, the count-up timer resumes from where it left off from question 1, instead of inheriting the values of question 2. Same thing happens when going back to Q1 (count-up starts from Q2 value instead of Q1).
Since this is for a client, I have sanitized it to the point where some workarounds may not even apply to my case, however PLEASE DO give the attached story a try.
Variables included :
CUpM1, the current count-up timers minute value
CUpS1 & S2, the current count-up timers seconds values
CDnM1, the current count-down timer minute value
CDnS1 & S2, the current count-down timer seconds values
Q001M1, the saved minute value for count-up timer - Question 1
Q001S1, S2 the saved seconds values for count-up timer - Question 1
Q002M1, the saved minute value for count-up timer - Question 2
Q002S1, S2 the saved seconds values for count-up timer - Question2
curQ : The current question variable
Any suggestions are very very welcome.
