I am new to PsychoPy and so far I have used the PsychoPy Builder so far for creating my experiment. I will describe my problem using the standard template:
OS: Win 10
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): v2022.2.5
Standard Standalone? (y/n): yes
What are you trying to achieve?:
Participants are asked to rate a stimulus at the beginning of the experiment (slider t1). I used the slider component in the builder, and the stimulus rating works.
At the end of the experiment, I would like to show the participants their rating value as a marker on the slider again (slider t2). Therefore, I want to show the slider component marked on the position as in slider t1. Additionally, on the same slider component, I would like to show the rating of the “supposedly other” participants as another marker.
What did you try to make it work?:
I have created a variable with properties/ experiment start value “$slider1.getRating()” in the routine of slider t1. Later, I try to access this variable as starting value for the slider in slider t2.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
The slider t2 does not show any marker on the slider scale. I only have managed to display the rating value from slider t1 and the rating value of the “supposedly other participants” as text boxes above the slider component at t2. I think with “getRating()”, I only refer to a number or string which can be depicted in text boxes, but not coordinates for the slider component. But I don’t know how to access the rating value at slider t1 differently.
Any help is highly appreciated! Thank you so much!
