What are you trying to achieve?:
I want participants to estimate the age of someone in a photo by typing a number into an editable textbox (32 trials), and I’d like for the experiment to run online
What did you try to make it work?:
I made an editable textbox component in builder! It is called AgeEst below.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
The experiment runs fine on my computer, but when I pushed it to Pavlovia, I can estimate the age of the first photo, but none of the subsequent photos. The mouse click successfully ends each trial.
On the first trial, I can enter the age, as shown below.
When I click the mouse, the next trial shows up, but no cursor. I can click through all my stimuli, but cannot enter any more ages.
I have looked at this post Editable textBox not working in conditional loop and others for guidance, but it doesn’t seem to be quite the same situation.
Also added the code referenced in Editable TextBox component does not register keypresses after updating to version 2021.1.2 AND textbox.editable = true from Editable TextBox component does not register keypresses after updating to version 2021.1.2 nothing changes.
And truly baffling, when I press escape when testing online, the cursor comes back, and I can type stuff in for one trial. When I click the mouse, all subsequent trials have no cursor, just a mouse click that ends the trial.
