- Hidetext means, "Make this text box invisible."
Showtext means, "Make this text box visible."
(You can also make a text box visible or invisible by right-clicking on it or placing the eye tool on it and then checking or unchecking the "visible" box.)
- This project uses an invisible text box called questions which has a lot of questions in a list. You can use the buttons at the bottom of the page to show and hide the questions. (It is more fun to keep them hidden, but you can show them to add more questions to the list.)
- Text1, insert textpick "questions means: "Choose any line from questions (the invisible text box) and insert it into the text box named text1."
Note: You need to hit Enter (on PC) or Return (on Mac) after each question. A "line" does not end until you do this, no matter how it looks.
Can you make the text box visible, add more questions to it, then hide it again?
If you like, place your list of questions on another page and keep it visible at all times on that page. Add a button to each page to make it easier to move from one page to the other and back again.
On Your Own - Project Ideas
Write all of your own questions for the list.
If you are using a computer network and have a shared area where projects can be viewed, it can be fun to open other people's projects and "borrow" their questions without looking at them, if they don't mind. Copy and paste them into your own project. Then you will really be surprised when you click the ask_a_question_and_shake button. (Be sure you save your own project before you open someone else's, and save your project again after pasting in their questions. But do not change anyone else's project, of course.)
You can also write the lists of questions in a word-processing document and then copy and paste them into the questions text box.
