Printing a certificate from storyline

Oct 09, 2013

Hello all,

I am needing a bit of help. I have built a game that incoporates a kind of "choose your own adventure" style (I loved those books as a kid...still do.) which allows the user to collect bonuses throughout the game if they make certain decisions. If the user collects all the bonuses, they are then directed to a unique end screen that is a certificate that shows their "perfect score." The problem I am having is figuring out how to create a button in the module that will print the certificate out so that the user can click it, print it, and display their accomplishment at their station.

I tried housing the certificate on a results slide, but since there is no quiz, just choices tracked by variables, it doesn't quite work the way I would like. Any suggestions, ideas, hieroglyphics or smoke signals would be greatly appreciated!!

Oh no, you were helpful!! I did a little more digging and found another thread that addressed this as well. The solution that was super simple for me was just creating a "run javascript" button with the following: window.print(); 

Since I am only needing to print the slide that is currently active, this seemed to be the easiest for my desired result.

Thank you again for your help!! I really do appreciate it!


P.S. I am fairly new to the whole E-Learning world, but am finding Storyline to be very easy to use and extremely intuitive for me. I dig it...a lot!
