Hello,

I just tested the code on a participant tonight and it worked flawlessly.

I owe you two my master's thesis!

Thank you Michael and Bernd, you prevented a mental break down :)

It works well!

Even when my system is processing other things and slowing runtime down it does not result in a messed up scrollbar.

I will tune 'my' code tonight and probably use it tomorrow.

Thank you both!

Gotta love the Germans and Australians ;)

That did the trick,

Thank you Bernd and Regulae!

I will give this new code a run through to see if the hang up occurs.

When I look at the source of the image "photo" says "-25.bmp" indicating it is not getting the actual image name... yet it should put in the actual image name from "imagenameExp" - as this should have "item 6 of line trialnum of stimlist" in it...

I meant Imagename to imagenameexp (I thought I used 'imagename' earlier in the study for compiling the stimlist so I used imagenameExp instead of imagename). Unfortunately, after making the changes - the image is still not showing up. the imagenum part does seem to work though as the "slider" is mov...

Thank you for the incredibly thorough reply. You were right about what my study entails, very impressive. Rather like palm reading, except actually true. I have taken your code recommendations and attempted to apply them, however, it appears that the image field "Photo" is not changing the image dur...

When the scrollbar is moved by clicking on the bar (not the button that moves) one of the messages sent is "ScrollbarPageDec" I will look into this, but does anyone know what that means?

I have a "demo" card that basically demonstrates what a trial is like, however, that scrollbar and the one on the experiment card act very differently. The scrollbar on the democard requires that you click the actual button and move it - while the scrollbar on the experiment card moves no matter whe...

I tried switching from the scrollbardrag to "onmouseup", however, the bugged slide bar still occurred after a few trials and time-outs (testing it out myself). I think it has something to do with the 'timeout' code because after it has timed out a few that is when it seems to occurs... but i'm not s...

I just appended "with messages" to the waits and it still seems to get bogged down. I suppose the program gets bogged down/ slowed down and then messes up, that is why it seems to have no pattern? This is frustrating, perhaps I need to program it more efficiently to reduce strain...

I changed hide scrollbar "slider" set the thumbpos of scrollbar "slider2" to 25 to hide scrollbar "slider" lock messages set the thumbpos of scrollbar "slider2" to 25 unlock messages I did this twice for "experiment" and "experime...

Strange sporadic slider behaviour

Hello Run Rev Gurus, I am having a strange phenomenon occur with a slider during a psychology experiment I am conducting. (I am a masters student) I use a slider to change an image field, and most of the time it works properly all the way through (there are 144 trials). Today, however, I had the sli...

Hey AcidJazz, It turns out that although using disable has helped with a problem with my scrollbars - the button is still clickable while my scroll bar demonstration is going on. I will post the code for my "experiment" card - I think because the code is under my "on experiment" handler (if that is ...

Thank you both for the fast replies

Hey thanks guys for the fast reply, I have decided to go with the "disable" and "enable" route - this seems to solve the issues I was having. So I will disable the hidden objects and when I reveal them I will enable them. I suppose I was under the impression that hiding an object also disabled it. A...
