Using true false variables to change states

Hi there

I am pulling my hair out (figuratively) trying to get a state change using variables in Storyline.   It's a free form drag and drop and when all the items have been dragged and dropped I want a state change to show all.

I've attached the SL file if anyone can set me straight.

Cheers and thanks

Helen

  1. Since you don't know what the last drop object is, you need to have a trigger that says change the state of the button to normal when var X changes if YZA are true. Then you need that same trigger on all four possible last drops.
  2. You could create an empty state for each drop. Then create a trigger to change state to the empty state (not hidden). Then get rid of the variables. Add a trigger for the button when the state of all of the drops are empty. 

Here's a recording where I explain both. The second option is easier. I show that at the 8 min mark.
