Intro

Eight years ago I wrote a blog post about ‘Secrets of cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice’. Of course the embedded example file was published to SWF at that moment. This specific quizzing variable is very useful when you need to evaluate the results of survey slides to make decisions. I created a new example file, partially based on slides from the Quick Start Project Alliance. It is part of a ‘decision tree’ which could be used for those who want/need to convert legacy projects to make them ready for publishing to HTML5.

Example file instructions

There is no audio in this example. All quiz slides are Survey slides, and navigation is based on the results of the Survey slides.  Type of slides used are True/False, MCQ with one correct answer, MCQ with multiple correct answers. At the end of each branch (there are quite a lot of possibilities) you will end up on a slide with possible workflows. In this example you’ll find only three ‘results’ slides:

  1. If you have only the SWF output of the legacy project.
  2. If you have the cptx-file but cannot use it directly in the present Captivate version
  3. If you have the cptx file, it can be opened in the present version.

To explore a new branch, please refresh the browser.

Explanation needed?

How did I use cpQuizInfoAnswerChoice and which other features were used? It was rather challenging, due to the topic with its multiple navigation branches. Maybe in a next blog post? BTW I did only use variables and actions, no JS.
