Prompt

The prompt is a special-purpose dialog for you to provide instruction to the learner as well as a secondary set of controls for navigating screens.

General Settings
Accessible Name
The visual label that appears on the button.
This value must be a meaningful label for the control. In addition, there must be a visible label in the underlying screen shot that matches this name.
Width/Height/Top/Left
Controls the size of the control and position of the control on the screen.

Tip

With the control selected and focused in the Editing Canvas, you can press the right, left, up or down arrows to nudge the control one pixel in the direction pressed.

Holding the control key while pressing one of the arrows will resize the control in the direction pressed by one pixel.

Holding shift will cause the nudge or resize to scale by 10 pixels instead of 1.

Content
Title
The visible title for the prompt dialog.
Value
The contents of the dialog body. This field allows you to use a limited set of Markdown formatting to style text.
Show Continue Button
If enabled, displays a “Continue” button that will trigger evaluation for the current screen.
The continue button is provided for situations where there is no on-screen button that moves the learner to the next step.
Show Back button?
If enabled, a “Back” button will be displayed on the prompt, allowing the learner to return to the previous screen.
When a learner moves back to a previous screen, they return to that screen in the same state they left it. That is, if the screen was correct, all the correct values are still selected. By the same token, if there was an error on the previous screen, the error will be there when they click back.
Show Next Simulation Button
Displays a “Next Simulation” button that will exit the current simulation and take the user to the simulation you specified in Next Simulation ID in the Simulation Settings properties panel.
A prompt cannot have both a “Next Simulation” and “Continue” button.
