Controlling the timed display of a hint box
Hi there fellow Captivators
I’m having a problem with controlling the timed display of a ‘hintbox'(Smart shape group). I am trying to achieve the following:
- If the user doesn’t click on the click box within 3 seconds a hint box (Initially set to invisible) will appear.
- If the user does click on the click box within the 3 seconds then the hint box will remain invisible.
I have created a variable to count whether the click box has been clicked or not. However, I believe my problem is because I am running the hint box-advanced action ‘on entry’ and it is checking if the variable is 0 on entry (which of course it is) and so goes ahead with executing that action. My problem is, I can’t find a way of, if within the 3 seconds the click box is clicked then the hint should not appear. I know this might not be 100% clear from my description so I have included a short video showing exactly what I mean and this copy of the example project:
thank you all in advance for any help or advice you can offer.
