Storyline: Enabling the Submit Button Only After Selecting an Option

Storyline: Enabling the Submit Button Only After Selecting an Option

Recently, we were asked by a client to develop an assessment containing multiple choice questions (MCQs). The client laid a condition that the Submit button should be enabled only when the user selects an option for an MCQ. He wanted to do this in order to prevent the learner from inadvertently clicking the button without selecting an option.

We met this interesting requirement using Articulate Storyline by following the steps given below.

Step 1: Create a multiple choice slide as shown in the screenshot below.
