Hello!

I've created a Text Entry Box for students to enter thier name. When student enters thier name and clicks "submit" a "start your quiz" button appears. 

 

Using the this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/captivate/using/text-entry-boxes.html I've created an Advanced action to "test" the box and display an error message if nothing is entered into the field when "submit" is clicked. This works as expected. 

 

How can I "reset" the advanced action to clear the error message and "re-test" the text entry box?

 

Thank you all again!

Hmm... was wondering how that help page did solve what you wanted to do. There is no explanation about testing for an empty input. Almost 10 years ago I wrote out a possible workflow, and have refurbished that post because some changes occurred for HTML5 output. Maybe could be helpful?

If you do not need to score the input, and avoid some tweaking tricks needed to reset a TEB, why not try using a Scrolling Text Interaction?

Sorry for all the links, feel free to ignore them. But this one seems to get a lot of visits as well:
