I am wrting an Advanced Action to check the value of  TEB variable. It is kicked off using Auto Submit but it is failing. I've traced it to the TEB variable has not been updated with the last character when the check is performed. For instance, if Auto Submit is used with a Max Length of 2 and I enter "AB", the variable only contains "A" when the "On Success" Advanced Action is kicked off.

 Is there a way to force the variable to record all characters entered before executing the advanced action? Thanks

Today a new update to 11.5.5 was released.

Had the same release. Can you insert the variable in a text container on the slide?  That way you can check if the variable is correctly filled. It adds each character immediately when it is typed.
