UserNote and Variables.

I'm evaluating Just In Mind for my company, so I'm fairly new to the tool. I didn't see anything in the JustInMind tutorial or userguide and UserNote online help, so I doubt this is available. When I publish a project in Usernote, is it possible to allow users to change the values of variables and reload a page? I have several on page load events that show/hide content based on the values of variables. I would like to allow my stakeholders to be able to toggle various options and render the page with those options on demand.

No, but many clients create another screen in the prototype to do so. I've seen prototypes that have a screen that is just to configure the simulation. That screen have input fields to change the values of the variables the way you ask for.

Victor, thanks for the quick response. I did try out the route you suggested. I created a dynamic panel that provides combo boxes to set various aspects of the screen. When clicking on an OK button on that dyanmic panel, the screen is updated based on what was specified by the user.


On an semi-related note, I believe I know the answer to this, but just want to confirm, there is no way to Show/Hide multiple GUI components with a single event, correct?

No, there is no way to hide them all at once unless they are grouped or inside a dynamic panel.

Silly me, I read that in the tutorial and it just didn't click. Thanks again.
