Hi saratogacoach, Depending on what you're doing, you are often best off using just ONE card, and simply looping through the questions or instructions. Granted, you may want to use separate stacks for the quiz versus the tutorial, but even those can often be merged into a single card each! Let's say...

Submit to Google Spreadsheets works every *other* time???

A couple of months back SparkOut was kind enough to help me mimic what Google Forms does using "post ... to url" in Revolution. Seemed to work fine - the data shows up in Google Spreadsheets quite nicely. Except... Lately however, and almost without fail (there HAVE been a few exceptions, but very f...

Revolution Player

Jan, Does the player *not* add itself to the registry? I assumed that once I downloaded the player, I could doubleclick on a .rev file to open it, but it doesn't work. The Revolution icon appears in the taskbar and I can right click on that to open a file, or drag a .rev file onto the player icon in...

mweider, Hey, I downloaded GLX2 installer, and the free tools are great. Bjornke's stack script along with the CNTL Tab to change between editor and browswer tool is certainly workable for me! As for the revTools.rev question, what I see is mostly html code for colorizing the script, and yes, it's g...

Wow! Quite a conversation. This is great. The revTools stack certainly is a jungle. Fascinating to read the programmers comments about bugs though! I felt like a spy. And then, just as SparkOut warned, I corrupted the file (but had made a backup, so it's okay). It would be useful to know what I did ...

Streamline,
You there? I think I've got it all figured out, , but not sure how you feel about the FIRST image being repeated across trials. Say that you show a cat as the first Image on trial 1. If the same cat comes up randomly on, say, trial 68, is that a problem?

Jan,
Very clever. It makes more sense to "do" it dynamically. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself) :)

Walt, Let's say it's a field you're interested in... on mouseUp put the backgroundcolor of field 1 into tString answer tString end mouseUp If there is no background color set, the answer box will be completely blank. If there is a color, you'll get the RGB values for the color. Of course, you don't ...

Preston, do you actually need all the SCORM stuff? If you simply want them to interact with your stack (e.g., a tututorial on some topic) but not collect any data, then it's pretty easy. Yes, as Klaus noted, students will need to download the standalone (until version 4.0 of Revolution comes out, as...

Thanks Bernard. At first, when I read this I thought, "Indeed this DOES sound like an unnecessarily complex workaround." :-) But, I gave it a shot, and with a bunch of fields, it does tend to be faster (although it's an odd feeling for me to place my mouse over an object *without* clicking anything)...

Streamline, You can do pretty much your entire study on one card, using "repeat" statements to loop through the images, checking for doubles with "if then" statements, etc. As Bernd noted, the random() or "any" functions are the way to go, although I believe they give you sampling with replacement, ...

If I recall, in Authorware you could double click on the field and type directly into it. Would it be difficult to get Revolution to do that? Or a setting in preferences that takes you immediately to the contents if you double click?

Unfortunately it now appears that because I do not have the Enterprise version of Revolution, I cannot access google datasets because they require the https (SSL) protocol. Trying to do so using Revolution Studio gets you an "error socket closed" message
:(
