In the Drag & Drop Interaction, there is a check box to Auto Submit correct answers. Is there a way to auto submit after all of the drag sources have been placed on a drop target, even if they are incorrect? I played around a little with conditional actions and couldn't come up with a solution.
Captivate 7, Windows 7
As per the current design, 'Auto Submit' works only for correct answers. You can try adding the following advanced action in case if you don't want to report the Drag and Drop interaction.
1. Create a user variable called 'count' with value '0'.
2. Create a conditional action with the following statements.
Assume your total number of Drag sources is 4, and then create a conditional action with the following statements
Select the Target Object, Click on the 'Accept' button from Drag and Drop Properties Panel. (Accepted Drag Source dialog should open up)
Set 'On Drop action' as Execute Advanced action, select the advanced action created in the above step, (set it for all sources).
This action gets triggered while dropping sources and the else part gets executed on drop the last source object and movie continues to the next slide
As I mentioned before, this doesn’t actually submit the question so it won’t work with 'Reporting' scenarios.
Fantastic solution. Thank you for your detailed response!
I know this is an old posting, but I just wanted to mention that this only works if you uncheck "Redrag the dropped source." Otherwise, the re-dragging increments the counter as well. The simple way to handle a reset is to have the advanced action jump to the next slide, which is an incorrect feedback slide, and have that slide go to the previous slide to allow the learner to try again. Make sure to set the success of the drag and drop to skip the incorrect feedback slide.
Thanks for your answer, have posted mnay solutions to this same problem. Lot has changed also in D&D...
