- published a captivate project with 7 text entry boxes on a slide
- a single submit button with advanced actions to validate user input.
Issue: The text entry boxes do NOT display in Safari browser, but they DO display in every other browser.
Additionally, the text from the TEB will magically display once i roll over the Submit button i have created.
Which version do you use? Responsive or non-responsive project?
Captivate Version: 126.96.36.199
Not responsive project
Please update to 188.8.131.526. You are publishing to HTML only, did you test after uploading the published folder to a webserver?
I shall do my best to get IT to update me.
Side note: for SOME FREAKING REASON... Safari, and ONLY Safari, decided not to recognize the layers i have established in Captivate. But all other internet browsers were capable of rendering the activity correctly.
Answer: The text entry boxes were hidden behind a PNG graphic, even though they are layered in front of it in the design.
Lesson to learn: Missing a Text Entry Box, make sure it's not behind something else.
That is the most weird situation because TEB's by default have priority on graphics. Even more strange that Safari only has this problem, I never heard about such a situation in Captivate and answered tons of qestions.
I had some issues testing my content (text entry) on a mini IPad. Worked as designed on all other hardware. I found that I could not use a transparent text box, I HAD to select 'Show Text Box Frame' in the Style options. Otherwise, the text looked 'invisible' as you typed.
