State Issue

Aug 12, 2020

Morning heroes! 

Please can someone help me with this - I've tried several ways of doing this and I'm wondering if I'm missing something. I am trying to get a 'Click Next' box to appear after the markers have been clicked. I have tried:

  • change state of box to normal (from hidden) when all markers are clicked
  • added a T/F variable that changes to 'True' when all markers are visited and the box to change to normal when that variable is true
  • added a number variable that adds 1 for each marker and the box to change to normal when that variable is 4
  • last thing I have tried is show next layer once all markers are visited and just had that box on the layer

Either Storyline is being temperamental or I'm being silly. Please help!

Hi, Charlie,

Weird! Your trigger to show the layer with the Click-Next message sure looks fine to me. Not sure why it doesn't work when the 4 buttons are Visited.

However, when I edit the trigger to execute when the 4 related rectangles are Visited, it does work, as shown in the attached file.

FYI: I couldn't help myself: I also reformatted some of the text in two of the rectangles. The first and third messages included underlined text. That was the best way to add emphasis back pre-Internet. But since underlining has become the standard way to indicate a link, it should not be used solely for emphasis. So I removed the underlines and colored the text instead.
