Count variables and storing values of the buttons clicked

Oct 31, 2020

Hi all, I'm trying to create a Johari Window in Storyline 360. I'm facing an issue with the count variable. I created a variable to add 1 if the button is clicked, but when I click the same button again, it should subtract 1. I'm not able to get this done. It keeps adding and when I add a trigger to subtract, it keeps subtracting when I click the button.

Also, how do I store the button (text written in it) which I clicked on slide 1 to slide 2? 

Any help on this, please?

Hi, Sharath,

If you want one button to sometimes add and sometimes subtract, you need to apply conditions to the triggers. The easiest in this case to use a condition based on the value a T/F variable, because those are easy to toggle.  You can see this in action in the attached file. 

If you want to "store" the text from a button that was clicked on slide 1 so you can use that info on slide 2, add a trigger to that button that puts the text into a text variable when it is clicked. 

  • If there are multiple buttons, and you only want the last one clicked, put the text into the same variable. 
  • If you want to track multiple buttons, put the text for each button into its own variable.
  • To show the value of any variable, type the variable name within percentage symbols. For example, this would show the value of a variable called Count:
