This small project is created as answer to a question on the Adobe forums. You can visit the thread using this link:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/captivate/when-clicked-plus-minus-button-the-red-box-should-move-to-left-right/td-p/11159710?page=1

You will see that the user was using a ‘outdated’ workflow with a multitude of Show/Hide actions and decisions in conditional actions, probably based on equally outdated tutorials which were published before the Multistate objects appeared.  Have a look at this sample project. It has only one slide. Use the Minus and the Plus button to move the slider. There is a protection based on the limits. The text ‘slider…’ to start with zero.

Tow multistate objects (progress bar and Text warning) , two variables and two one-decision advanced actions have been used. If this slider would be reused often, maybe with a different set of  states, I would convert the advanced to shared actions of course.

You will only see output of projects from me in the future, no explanation of workflows anymore. After more than 10 years of providing people with inspiration for advanced and shared actions, it is over.
