I am currently designing an experiment where participants provide a numerical response in a textbox which will need to be displayed in following routines and trials.
From what I understand, I need to store the text of my textbox (something like
textbox.text) in a variable component, especially its end routine value, as advised elsewhere by @TParsons. The problem is I do not know where in the variable component I have to specify this. I tried doing it in “Routine start value”, and checking “save Routine end value”. I do not know if that is the right way.
Also, I do not know how exactly to display that text response in a following routine. I tried printing
$var1(the name of my variable) in a text component. But I get a blank, grey screen. When I try
$var1.text, I crash. And when I try
$textbox.text, my screen is blank as well.
From this alone is there anything I’m doing wrong ? If not I can provide some code, although I have tried touching it as little as possible.
All the best,
