So I understand that the Textbox component is in beta, and has problems online. But… I have played around with it - and got it to more or less work to do what I want online - apart from the ‘Focus’ problem I have seen other people talk about.
I am trying to gather a freetext response from a user. (Actually typically only a number from 1 to 100 or similar - but it is important that it could be ANY number - so a slider or similar will not work).
The first few textboxes I use only happen once - so that’s fine. If you do the experiment, a bit later - participants are asked for a confidence rating for a decision. And now… the first time the Textbox displays it work perfectly. It has focus, a (wierd barely visibile) cursor, but that’s fine - I can click in the box and enter text. Cool.
On the next iteration of the loop - The textbox displays but I cannot get it to take focus - and therefore cannot enter text.
So is there a workaround for this? OR…
By what other means can I get my users to type some text into a field and record that?
Thanks so much @wakecarter. For your help here and elsewhere.
I’m afraid I don’t understand your reference to a ‘a coded solution’. By this do you mean an experiment built entirely in Python without the aid of Builder at all?
Also - I would like to have a look at the experiments/demos you mention. How should I find these? if I go the Pavlovia ‘browse’ page and enter ‘digit’ and ‘span’ in the search field (spaces seems to create two different search terms - I can’t see a project authored by you. And there are a LOT of digit span experiments. Hmmm…
