Unable to show a Fill In The Blank question object from DHTML

Question Objects ››

PROBLEM

Attempts to show (make visible) a Fill In The Blank question object fails within a DHTML lesson if the question was hidden at the moment of DHTML export.


DETAILS

This is a known problem with the Fill In The Blank question object. There are two recommended ways to work around the problem:

Ensure the Fill In The Blank question object is not hidden at the moment of export

This avoids the problem completely by ensuring the question is not hidden at the moment of export.

Instead of hiding and showing, move the object into view

The idea is to position the object off the left edge of the page (in other words setting the left property to a negative number), where it cannot be seen. This effectively hides it. When the object needs to be made visible, position the object back onto the page in its original location.
