You may want to provide a user with Immediate Feedback when they respond to a question in a ToolBook course. ToolBook provides multiple ways to display question feedback to the user.
One available option uses a popup to display the Immediate Feedback. Unfortunately, you cannot control the appearance or location of this popup. This Mini Lesson will demonstrate how to create your own custom feedback, so that you can control the appearance and location of your own popup.
On each question page, a Text Pane will be needed to display the feedback. ToolBook provides a wide variety of pre-built Text Panes.
Rename the Text Pane "Feedback" or something that will designate that it will be used for question feedback.
Text panes are not auto-sizing, so you will need to size your text pane to fit the longest feedback text.
An "X" button, or close button, can be created and added to the text pane. When this "X" button is clicked, the text pane will close.
This step will briefly describe a way to create the "X" button:
The logic to set the text of the text pane to the question feedback text and to make the text pane visible will be added to the question object.
Below is an outline of the general steps necessary to have the text pane appear, with the appropriate text, when the question is answered.
The logic to close the text pane when the "X" button is clicked will be added to the "X" button. When the button is clicked you will need to set the visible property of the button and the text pane to false.
See the example logic below:
