I've put a text-entry-box into a course, giving the learner three attempts to answer correctly before I just give them the answer. I'd like to be able to clear their answer out of the text entry area and I tried to do that with an advanced action that sets the variable (Answer) for the box with Assign = " " when the learner selects the "Close" button on the popup that appears when the answer is wrong (see below).
That however does not work.
P.S. I made my own "submit" button for the text-entry-box...I didn't use the one attached to it by Captivate.
The only solution is to re-emter the slide. I have explained this workflow when presenting about the Timeline in 2017-2018 (two conferences) and I mention it in a recent post:
Annoying, there are more problems with the TEB. Another solution would be to use the CpExtra widget by InfoSemantics.
You might try this.
document.getElementById("Text_Entry_Box_1_inputField").value = "";
Then change the Text_Entry_Box_1_ part to match the name of your text field.
Do not remove the underscore inputField at the end.
Be sure to remove the value of the variable associated with the TEB as well.
Let me know if you have further questions about this.
That did it! Thanks much for the help!
I've gotta put the effort into working with JS...it's clearly the answer for alot of problems.
