I am designing an experiment where a participant can spend credits per answer. I currently have it set so that once they type in their response, they press a “Continue” button using the mouse to carry on to the next part of the experiment.
This works as intended, however the issue comes when I try to tweak it a bit. I am trying to make it so that if the current count minus their typed credit input is less than zero, that the continue button disappears. I would then like the button to re-appear once their input value is back to 0 or above.
I tried setting the Start/Stop duration in components to:
Start: credit_spend.text Stop: count- int(credit_spend.text) < 0
Which did get it to disappear, but then I couldn’t get it to show up again.
Additionally I tried a code component using the below in the Each Frame box, yet this didn’t make the continue box disappear at all. I also tried this with “NOT_STARTED”:
if credit_spend.text: if count- int(credit_spend.text) < 0: cont_text.status == FINISHED
Is what I am trying to do possible? I’m trying to avoid extra routines to send them back to ask them to input a new answer.
