Javascript for Storyline

Apr 18, 2019

Anyone knows where can I find a good compilation of JavaScript codes for storyline or how could I began exploring the feature to learn more about creating my own code? Like training materials/ courses etc?

I know html and css but have minimal experience in Java.

I'm actually putting together a 1 day workshop for this and looking for some guinea pigs to go through a beta version.  Zsolt Olah is or possibly has pulled content together for a book. I'm not sure what his publishing target is.  

Is there something specific that you are interested in accomplishing with JavaScript and StoryLine?

Between Matthew and Owen you're pretty much covered for your first year of JavaScript! :) 

As Matthew pointed out is a collection of JavaScript examples for Storyline (and some Rise) with code. It's a living document collecting more and more examples. It also has suggestions how to start, what tools you need, etc. 

Just because the Storyline trigger is probably the last place you want to write code in. Only copy-paste the most. It's much easier to use a tool that supports the syntax.

I am looking along these lines and parsing through the links. I am looking to pass variables (via javascript) to a web server. One way trip. It is so I can gather analytic data.

For example, I have 4 sliders that have variables. After the user makes the selection, I want SL to fire off those variables to my web server to log in a database.
