Show Layer Multiple instances

Aug 07, 2014

Hello, I'm new to the Articulate family and I'm developing a course and had a quick question regarding layers.

I have a page which contains a process overview and I want the learners to click on ALL 5 hotspots before they are able to advance to the next page. So this is what I've done thus far:

  1. Created 5 "True/False" variables, one for each Hotspot,
  2. Added the following triggers to each Hotspot on the base layer (1) Set "variable" to True; (2) Show the respective layer.
  3. Added a notification message layer instructing learners they must click each hotspot before proceeding to the next page. (The Player trigger being: Show layer "Layer name" If (all 5 variable names) is equal to False.
  4. Added Player trigger "Jump to next slide when user clicks the next button if (all 5 variable names) is equal to True.

So here is what happens now:

  1. The slide appears and when I click the "next" button without clikcing on a hotspot, my Notification layer message appears as it should. I have a button on this layer which then hides this message layer.
  2. Then back on the base layer, if i click the "next" button again (before clicking on all the hotspots) the notification message layer doesn't re-appear. Thus my dilemma - I want the message to appear anytime the learner clicks the next button until all 5 hotspots have been visited.

Any assistance, guidance or tips are greatly appreciated.
