Hi Community, I have a head-scratcher. I have variables in place to indicate the path a user takes (based on a button click on the second slide of the course) that I am using to branch later in the course using a conditional advanced action. Seems simple enough...if varLaunch_[pathname] is equal to 1 then Jump to Slide X. It is not working and I have no idea why. All the tabs of the AA are set up properly and I have verified that the variables are correct using the list of variables as a debugger. Any help is appreciated. It is driving me nuts.
Please do not attach screenshots but insert them. Reasons: I had to download that screenshot, then open it in PS (associated with PNG on my system), look at it, see that it is pretty useless, now have to delete it.
I would have loved to see the complete action, not just half of the first decision. that dialog box has a Preview button (first button in top right control panel) where you can see all the decisions at once.
Branching is rather simple, but to see the full workflow need a lot more. Advanced Interaction panel will show you all the interactions and to which events they are associated. I don't even know which event is used for this advanced action.
Have a look at:
I see that you are trying to execute that action on slide exit.
I might suggest tying your conditional action to a button press such as a next button.
Even if you ran that action on slide enter of the next slide you might have better results.
One of the links I offered explains all events in Captivate.
The On Exit event should be used very sparingly because it happens AFTER leaving the last frame of a slide. That may lead to unexpected problems. Ony Pause command on Exit is safe to be used, if you have no pausing points on the slide.
