Free BMI Calculator - Standard & Metric

Hi All,

Thought I would share this Body Mass Index (BMI) calculator I created.  There are plenty of these calculators online, but I wanted to see if I could build one in Storyline.  This would be great for people in healthcare.  I got the idea based off of Jeanette's Variable Tutorial with Calculations demo.

Thanks also to all of the Forum folks that answered my question about measurements in metric units.  I went with centimeters.

Here is the demo.

And here is the source file.

Charles,

Thanks for sharing!  I like your take on the same topic.  I'm eager to take a look at your source files and see how you built your demo.  I focused on the interaction, whereas you made it more of a complete module.  Nice work.

On a side note, I see you are with Yukon. Will you be at DevLearn next week?

Hi Rebecca,

I think there would be a way. It wouldn't yield a BMI value but you may be able to get people into categories by using a series of branching questions. Here is a chart that you may find helpful.
