This component (actually it’s two) will allow you to take a username from one chapter / module and then use it in any subsequent chapters / modules created in Adobe Captivate.
This is useful if you want to use the students name throughout your course / presentation without having the user enter the data more than once.
How does it work:
In the first chapter / module the Username is entered in a text entry box and stored in a user defined variable called v_Name. After the text entry box
you need to insert a special Flash animation, which will save this variable to a Local Shared Object on the users computer.
In any subsequent chapters / modules you insert another special Flash animation on the first page, which will retrieve the stored value from the LSO and populate the user defined variable v_Name in Captivate again.
After this you can use the $$v_Name$$ in text boxes to make your course personal and display the users name or you can use the stock certificate widget,
which will automatically fetch the users name.
