Re-using an object that has to change state - Controlled by variable

Mar 11, 2021

Good day,

I would like to use the same object on various screens, and control it with a trigger to change to a certain state. So if the user clicked it, I want it to be seen as "visited" across the whole course. I added a trigger - when the timeline starts - to the object to change state to visited if the variable=true. Now it keeps the normal state(on all screens but the one clicked) even tough the trigger should check the variable. How do I accomplish this, since it should be very elementary, but the trigger does not work once the objects displays on any other screen.

Hi, Lida.

Thank you for reaching out!

You only need to change the variable once (the first time the user clicks the object), but you need to check for changes on each new slide by adding a trigger.

Check out this article that explains this process in more detail!

The alternative would be to add both the object and the trigger above to the Slide Master. In that case, any new slide using the master would be checked automatically. 

Let me know if this works!
