Progress Indicator as a Percentage
I've been an eLearning designer and developer since 2005. In 2015 I started my own eLearning design company. I began to create Adobe Captivate video tutorials to help promote my business through my own YouTube channel at https://youtube.com/paulwilsonlearning. These videos were intended to attract potential clients looking for a skilled eLearning designer and developer. This strategy proved successful as I've worked with clients from all over the world, helping them build highly engaging eLearning solutions. My YouTube channel presented an additional benefit of attracting aspiring Captivate developers to seek me out as a teacher. I now offer both online and onsite training on Adobe Captivate, teaching the skills that users need to build engaging and interactive learning.

In this video, I’m going to show you how you can have a progress indicator in Adobe Captivate expressed as a whole number percentage. Thanks to Philip Wood for providing the JavaScript for this tutorial.

Thank you, this worked great! But I still have a problem…When the user goes to the last slide, it automatically shows that the progress is 100%, even if the user did not saw any other slides. Is there a additional variable or a function to count if the user actually saw the slide?

I often create these tutorials for one specific situation. In this case, the video assumed only a linear progression through an eLearning course. You could write a slightly different advanced action that incremented a variable that keeps track of the arrival on each slide but you would also need to keep track if the user has previously visited that slide before. This becomes a more complicated script to write and I’m not sure it’s worth the effort for something as mundane as pagination.
