Trigger Wizard in SL1....use = Assignment or = NOT Assignment?

Oct 09, 2015

I want to change Lesson1Completed variable from False to True when the timeline ends on this shape. I think I should use = NOT Assignment because the Assignment initially is False and I want it to toggle to =NOT Assignment. Correct?

Hi Joseph

as an example the NOT assignment (toggle variable) is more suited to when you want to switch between situations.  Eg. I have a Help button on a master slide with a help layer. I have set up the help button with a showHelp variable so when the users clicks it shows the help layer , they click again it hides the help layer. Similarly, an on/off switch.

hope that helps clarify and hope you are getting your navigation issue sorted.

Hey Anthony!

Sorry for the confusion!

You would use the =Assignment operator if you want to adjust the value of a variable to equal another variable or value.

The =NOT Assignment operator is only available for True/False variables.

You would use the =NOT Assignment operator if you want to adjust the value to its opposite. For example, adjust the value from True to False, or vice versa.

This handy tutorial explains how you can use those operators to create a toggle effect in Storyline. 

Let me know if you have more questions about that!
