Using the Click Box

Hello:
I've created an e-learning tutorial for some of our employees to learn about codes that we use for billing. I wanted to create an interactive experience, but its not working well.
First i created my image in PowerPoint (boxes/headings) and inserted them into Captivate and i then places a click box over top of it so once they click the description pops out.
Issues:
I've selected "infinite", but i am only allowed to click on it once
the word/description caption doesn't stay open long enough for users to read
I don't want it to automatically go to the next slide, I want them to click on the "next" button to proceed, but that isn't working either. I don't know if to choose "continue, next slide, no action" for the On Success action
I noticed at the end of each of the click box on the time line there is a pause.
I've attached a screen shot - hopefully this will help...
I am currently using a Trial version, could this be the reason (I'm waiting for my full version in the mail).
Is there a chance that the "click button" isn't what i should be using? Maybe I should be using the roll over slidelet?
Finally, I've created branching, I have two sections and I've created 2 quizzes, is there a way to have a summary after each quiz? or is it the only the one i can have?
Please help because im stuck and not sure how to fix this.
Thanks!

Trial or full version will both work the same, at least for this situation.
the click box is doing what it's designed to do, based on how you have the options set.  You have it acting like a scored object with the success/fail options in your screen shot.  Unfortunately, there isn't a way to manipulate the success caption's timing to make it stick around longer. 
As Rod indicated to do what it sounds like you want to do, you need to create some advanced actions (which is pretty advanced for a new user) or use the rollover caption as he suggests.  This might help you with the actions:  http://lilybiri.posterous.com/playing-hide-and-seek-with-captivate-objects

As for your quiz questions, Captivate only let's you make one quiz per project, so only one summary/score slide.  You could build your own again, with some advanced actions, but again that's pretty advanced for a new user.
hope that helps.

  • Captivate CS4 - Trouble using the Click box

    Hi.
    I'm hoping someone can help with a frustating problem I am having.
    I'm using captivate 4, and have several slides in my project.
    I have a next button on the slide, with a click box set to pause until the user click the area. Once clicked the slide moves to the next slide.
    However, on the same slide I have two buttons - one which opens a video file (so the button opens a URL when clicked), and a button on a different part of the slide which open a different URL link to different video..
    The click box seems to work, and doesn't move on to the next slide when the first button is clicked on, opening up a URL video.
    However, when I then click on the next button which opens up the second URL video, the slide suddenly moves onto the nextslide, without me clicking on the Click box area.
    Why is this happening? It seems to work fine, until I place two buttons on the same slide, and the second button is clicked. I don't want the slide to move on until the user clicks the click box area.
    Please can someone help!
    Thanks

    Hi,
    After a good night sleep I think I may have resolved the problem (I think). On the two buttons, they are set to open a URL link. Next to where I input the URL link, there is a menu where I select the option 'New' to open the video in a new internet window.
    What I didn't realise in at the bottom of that same menu, there is also an option to select 'continue project'. If I de-select this, if I then click on the button the project remains paused as it should (until the user clicks the click box). So, originally what was happening is I had the 'continue project' selected for both those buttons, and this was overpowering the click box pause project function.
    Fingers crossed it works. It seems to be on my tester!
    Thanks

  • Using the Combo Box

    I am trying to use the combo box, so that the users can type as well as go through the drop down and pick there choice.
    But I have three issues
    1. Whats happening is as soon as I type it in and hit submit it will not do anything, until and unless I click on the drop down and then go and click submit.
    2. The combo box is a text box and the numbers are not sorted, is there a way to sort numbers for a combo box
    3. How do I make the selection appear as the user is typing, for example If I type in 55, it should bring all the entries starting with 55.
    I am using Entrylist which is derived by a standard BAPI.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Naseer

    Hi Marcel,
    I have selected the action as "System Action" "Submit"  "Self". But it still does not work.
    The other thing is the COMBO box is a TEXT box and the Values are "NUMBER" values so even when I select "sort" at the Entrylist level it would not sort it properly, simply because COMBO BOX is a Text box.
    Please let me know if I am clear enough in explaining myself.
    Waiting for you reply..
    Thanks a lot Marcel.

  • How do you change the click box properties (line colour and width) in Captivate 7.0?

    How do you change the click box properties (line colour and width) in Captivate 7.0?

    Yes certainly, we can do that, insert a smart shape and use it as a button, then go to the properties pane, change the Alpha to 0, that will make it transparent, and add the stroke color as red and increase the width.
    In case of a button, you have to select button type as transparent and do the same.
    Thanks.

  • How to use the Combo Box In MAtrix Colums

    HI Experts,
    Good Mornong.How to use the Combo Box In MAtrix Colums?
    Regards And Thanks,
    M.Thippa Reddy

    hi,
    loading data in to the combobox on form load.but, it should be done when atleast one row is active.
    the values what ever you are inserting in to combo should  be less than or eqhal to 100 or 150.if it exceeds beyond that performance issue arises.it takes more time to load all the data.so, it is better to have 100 or less.
    oMatrix.AddRow()
    RS = Nothing
    RS = ocompany.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.BoRecordset)
    RS.DoQuery("select ItemCode,ItemName from oitm")
    oCombo = oMatrix.Columns.Item("ColumnUID").Cells.Item(oMatrix.RowCount).Specific
    For i = 1 To RS.RecordCount
          If RS.EoF = False Then
                oCombo.ValidValues.Add(RS.Fields.Item("ItemCode").Value,RS.Fields.Item("ItemName").Value)
                RS.MoveNext()
          End If
    Next
    the above code is inserting data from database to column combobox.
    you can fill combo directly also as shown below.
    oCombo.ValidValues.Add("x","1")
    oCombo.ValidValues.Add("y","2")
    oCombo.ValidValues.Add("z","3")
    oCombo.ValidValues.Add("","")
    and what ever the values you are filling into combo should be unique.other wise it shows valid value exists.

    I have tried in-installing safari but it seems not to help. I have tried installing it to a third, newly installed pc and come to the same result.
    All PCs are fully up-to-date as it regards Microsoft and Apple patches. Any ideas as to why this might happen?

    Still having the same problem. Ever the optimist, I submit the following info.

    I have tried re-installing iTunes, and restarting the Bonjour service, sadly there is no change.
    earlier before i updated iTunes it recognised my iPod but said that I had to update iTunes in order for it to work.
    So i updated iTunes but now it's not even showing the device anywhere.

  • Using the click wheel quickly pulls up a letter...but the WRONG LETTER

    OK, this is funny and somewhat topical. I am afraid it is a predecessor to future problems though.
    When using the click wheel rapidly in song selection we all know that letter pop up to help you scroll quicker. Well, the series of letters for me goes something like this:
    A B T B C D E T E F G H T H I J K L T L...you get the idea. Yes, it repeats the letter "T" over and over.
    Does anyone have any ideas about this? I have reset the iPod, but am leary about restoring it because I have 45 episodes of The Office and 6700 songs to mess with.
      Windows XP Pro  

    I am going to post, no so much an answer, but an observation. Here is what I noticed. The letter 'T' pulls up whenever there is the word "the" in the title. So, I am thinking that with the new iTunes, it updates the iPod not to recognize the word "the" when alphabetizing, but it recognizes the letter 'T' when scrolling.
    Example: Bananarama - Venus would come first, then the next song is The Band - Acadian Driftwood. So, Band comes after Bananarama if you omit the word "the", but the letters recognize the 'T' in the. Make Sense?
    Anyone have any thoughts on this? Does anyone know where I can tell Apple about it?
    Apple needs a section that we can click on called "stupid things we seem to overlook" and then fill out opinions on dumb screwed up options like this.

  • Why is the click box Failure Caption Display property disabled?

    Slide is 10 sec long. Click box appears at 7 sec, display to end, pause for response and failure caption, 2 attempts allowed before continuing.
    Failure caption > Properties > Display time is disabled--and set to 10 sec.
    Only want 3 sec with fade in and out 0.5 sec.
    This in the only one of the entire collection of failure captions doing this. While I "fixed" the slide by just deleting this one and re-doing what works, I want to know why I could not access or edit the Display time.
    Thanks.

    I expected the failure caption to last 3 sec (since that was the default for all the failure captions to begin with). There are only 2 attempts allowed before proceeding  to next slide.
    So, Here's what was expected. Slide opens. Text caption must be read, then an instruction given. At 7 seconds the click box becomes active. the failure caption should be 3 sec duration with fade in and out set to .5 sec each. So if the viewer clicks inaccurately, the failure caption appears for as long as 3 seconds waiting for a response. Respond incorrectly again, the failure appears again for 3 sec then the project moves on to the next slide. If the viewer doesn't click, the slide just waits without generating a failure caption.
    However, I don't know how the failure caption got set to 10 sec and I usually can modify the duration. The problem is that the duration property is disabled/not available to edit/not like the rest of the captions in the entire project. How do I activate it?

  • Resizing in Illustrator CC using the Bounding Box is no longer accurate. What happened?

    In Illustrator CC, resizing an object using the bounding box is no longer accurate. Snapping to other objects or the grid or anything is completely wrong and, worse, inconsistent. Here is a single box being resized 3 times to the same object. Each time, it becomes a different size.
    I used the center-left handle to resize the black box, snapping it to the right edge of the red box. You can see that, each time, it "snaps" to the edge incorrectly. My 80 pt box becomes 78.479 pt, then 79.295 pt, then 79.518 pt.
    This is totally unacceptable, obviously. I'm not sure what the point of guides are if they aren't actually guiding. Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Ethan,
    Did you reinstall after updating to Yosemite? I believe the right order/way is to update the OS first, then reinstall the applications, see 6) below.
    Or you may have a look at the list since something is obviously wrong.
    The following is a general list of things you may try when the issue is not in a specific file (you may have tried/done some of them already); 1) and 2) are the easy ones for temporary strangenesses, and 3) and 4) are specifically aimed at possibly corrupt preferences); 5) is a list in itself, and 6) is the last resort.
    1) Close down Illy and open again;
    2) Restart the computer (you may do that up to 3 times);
    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (easy but irreversible);
    4) Move the folder (follow the link with that name) with Illy closed (more tedious but also more thorough and reversible);
    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options (follow the link with that name, Item 7) is a list of usual suspects among other applications that may disturb and confuse Illy, Item 15) applies to CC, CS6, and maybe CS5);
    Even more seriously, you may:
    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool (if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6/CC), and reinstall.
