Is it possible to use the text variable reference within a data entry box?

Hi Cory,

The data entry box would be for the user to type in information, and as such I don't believe there is a way to call the information in as a variable reference. If you have the user enter the information in earlier, you could then use what they entered into a data entry text box as a variable later in the course.

For more information on working with variables you may want to review the tutorials available here.

Hi Ashley, I have the same question and I'm not sure of the answer. I checked out the link you provided, but it's not what I need.

I have a client who wants a text entry box on a screen to collect the number that a learner will enter. How can I display this in a later slide? When I added a text entry box, it created a trigger, but I'm struggling to figure out the variable to use.

Thanks, Marissa
