Print Results and Ipad

I created 4 survey questions and am using the Print Results and modified the (report.html) page to have only the question number, question and the student response. This works beautifully on the computer.  I ran a test of it on my Ipad and the Print Results button doesn't do anything.  Can anybody shed light?  Help please and thanks.

It has been a while since I ran into this, but I have a vague recollection that Articulate overlooked converting the Print to HTML.  I seem to recall that Print remains a Flash option, so it doesn't run on an iPad.  Someone might jump in and confirm or deny this.

One option, if you absolutely *had* to print something would be to publish an index.html page along with your course.  Clicking a button to open that page might be an option, but again, you're stuck with whether the iPad has printer support or not.

Sam,

I was thinking along the same lines--of incorporating a Web Object that referred to an html file (such as index.html) that I'd include in my SCORM package. I don't know how I'd pull the question and answer data into that webpage, though, or even where to get started looking for it. Do you have any ideas?

Thanks, Sam. I'm not looking for a completion certificate. Rather, I'm looking for a way to allow learners to save text they've entered into the tutorial. 

This reference looks helpful: http://www.articulate.com/support/kb_article.php?product=st1&id=llwes8cn32vg 

I bet I could use player.GetVar to populate a nice-looking HTML page with the user entries and even put a print button on it. I like this solution a lot better than editing the story.html file.

Since JavaScript won't work in the Articulate iOS app, I'm still stuck for a solution for the iPad. Wouldn't you know, iPad compatibility is a requirement for my project. 

So back to Dianne's original question: how the heck can we make learner entries on the iPad available to them from outside of the Articulate app?

Well, you could test your course in iPad/Safari/SCORM on the LMS.  Perhaps you'll be in luck and your course will run in Safari.  There you will have complete JavaScript support.
