Textbox input not recorded

I’m building an experiment with the builder in which participants need to write an answer. Therefore, I use Textbox response component. But when I run the code, answers written with my keybord are not displayed on the screen and not recorded.

I would need some help…



Hi @kevbague, we need a little more information to help you. Within Builder, Textbox responses should be saved in the output file at least on psychopy versions 2020.2.2+.

I’ve attached a working version of a simple TextBox-- When run in Builder, answers written using the keyboard are:

  1. displayed on the screen during the experiment and
  2. recorded in the output data files.

Check if this works for you, and then see what differs between this simple experiment and the one you created.
