Stop 'Show hint' button deducting from score, after initial click.

Dec 08, 2021


I have created a quiz in which participants start with 100 points. The points are displayed in a text box using the 'Score' reference. As they attempt each question they have the option to click a 'Show Hint' button, to help them if they are struggling. Clicking the button reveals the hint and also deducts 5 points from the score via a "Subtract value 5 from score when the user clicks Show Hint button" trigger.

Is there a way to prevent repeated clicks of the 'Show Hint' button deducting a further 5 points?

Hi, Stuart.

Thank you for reaching out!

There are a few ways to accomplish what you're looking to do. The first one I can think of is to disable the "Show hints" button once it's clicked (and you can enable it again next time they can use the Hint option):

Here's what that would look like:
