Control Time! Well in #Articulate Quizmaker
A friend mentioned to me that it would be cool if someone could pause the timer in an Articulate Quiz on certian questions. Turns out its not that hard to do!
For my fellow ActionScript geeks here is the code that matters:
_level0.g_mcFrame.mcClock.m_bStopped //Boolean indicating if the timer is currently stopped
_level0.g_mcFrame.mcClock.StartTimer() //Starts the timer
_level0.g_mcFrame.mcClock.StopTimer(); //Stops the timer
For my non-Flash developer friends you may download the swfs used in this demo from my sister site: http://elearningenhanced.com/products/articulate-quiz-timer-pauser
