I did research the answer to this question but could not find the simple solution I looked for (always a bad sign...).
Here goes, I have a drag and drop interaction with learners having to place countries in certain boxes (it is on a scale from high to low showing a certain propensity for something).
I want to show a hint after 2 wrong tries.
This I would do using states in a text box (normal = invisible, first state = hint)
So, in order to switch to the "Hint state" I need to track number of attempts.
I thought I could just use an AA to increment a variable by 1 for each attempt. But for that I need that number.
All solutions seem to have to do with an AA for each objects being dragged. But I have 5 drag sources and targets.
There has to be another way to track attempts, no?
Thanks for your help!
This tells more about the incompetence of search tools.... I have answered this question multiple times and have even a couple of blogs.
For attempts on theD&D level, not on the individual drag level (where Object actions are used) why not use the available built in messages? Here a couple of links:
Thanks a lot!
Hope I guessed correctly what you are looking for? It is pretty simple, I try to use included features as much as possible...
