Variables and Radio buttons

I'm not sure how to explain this.

In my course I have a story (Comic strip style) working on a timeline.  After each strip of story (relating to a time on the timeline) the trainee has to select a colour button for each charactor.  At the end of my story I want to have a results slide that show which colour buttons was selected for each timeline strip.  I hope this makes some sense.  I have no idea how to do this and have been struggling with the 'Search' function on this site. 

I have attached a demo of what it should look like.

Thanks!

Hi Nelia, I've updated and attached your .story file with your radio buttons fixed for the 18 month "shining" example (Karl).

Here is a tutorial that walks through creating variables, then triggers that adjust these variables: http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/working-with-variables.aspx

I also adjusted the state of the radio button on your results slide for Karl dependent upon the value of the variable set in the 18 month example on slide 1: http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/evaluating-text-variables.aspx

Here is a screenshot for creating the variables - 

A screenshot for creating triggers that adjust the value of the variables, dependent upon which radio button is selected - 

And finally a screenshot for changing the state of the radio button on Karl's result slide (18 month) dependent upon the value of the variable - 

Hope this helps!

Thank you this was really helpful, Brian.  In the end I changed the states of the markers to reflect the colour of the button selected at the relevant slides.  This looks better in the end.  :o)

Thanks again for helping me with this, your variable suggestions came in very useful to make this work.

Regards,
