Text entry without a Submit button

Is there anyway to set up a Text Entry object to jump to the next slide when the correct characters are entered and no other action takes place.

In other words - no submit button or user action of any kind other than typing the correct string. Simply a situation where the "entered" characters are evaluated until the correct string is entered and then automatically advance to the next slide.

Hi Bruce, 

Yes, that's what I saw and what I expected based on the triggers you had set up. Entering 1 on it's own, submitted the item even if that was the only value as the text entry was set to match what the user inserted and therefore it was a value of 1 in the condition. Instead, you could look at setting the condition to match a pre set value of a variable (not connected to a text entry). 

Let us know if that's what you're thinking!

Hi Bruce,

Sorry for the delay - we were at of offsite meeting! 

So it's going to involve "faking" it just a bit - but I thought a Peek video recording may help explain what I've done. Since the value of your text entry isn't set till the user actually clicks outside the field, you have to make it appear as if it's relying on the user typing it - but in reality it's already a set value or it's set based on the user being on the slide for X seconds. 

Play around with that and let us know if you need anything else!
