Progress indicators on menus

Nov 19, 2012

Traditionally we've used our own authoring tool to build courses that have a clear hierarchical structure of chapters and sections.  We want to replicate some of this functionality.

Specifically, on the menu screens (main menu and sub menus) we want an indicator to show whether the user has not started, started or completed all pages/slides under that chapter/section.  We can't however see a way of querying other slides for their completion state in order to devise an indicator.

In the example screenshot, all slides under chapter 1 are complete; some slides under chapter 2 are complete and no slides under the other chapters are complete.

We're not adverse to a bit of coding so is there a way under the hood to locate this information?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for you reply.

I did consider this.  If I am correct in your approach, will that require me setting a unique boolean variable for every page and then testing a large set of variables to determine whether a given section (set of slides) are complete, partially complete or not started?

If so, this might be become unmanageable as new pages are added/removed etc.

I was hoping for a facility to iterate though a list of slides in a given scene and test each one in turn with a 'local' variable of some sort.
