Saving Variables in Storyline

Oct 31, 2013


I have a Flash file that sets and gets variables in Storyline. The issue that I am having is getting the variables to save and hold when the course is resumed. The only way I can get the variables to save is if the user navigates to another slide. Is there a way to have the variables save and hold without navigating away from the slide with the Flash file?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Mike:

When you write vars in SL, or from a Flash file in your content area, SL will store the information in cache.

Cache, by nature, is static until a process is told to send it.

As an example, when you publish your SL project for TinCan, the cached information is sent to the LMS each time you click the Next button. The Next button calls the trigger process to send the data.

If you are sending data from the content area, you will need to use an equivalent type of process.

To do this, you can have your Flash data be processed using a JavaScript trigger to PUT the processed data.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
