This is a tough one, so any help or suggestions with just where to start
looking would be fantastic!
I am an academic researcher using authorware for my dissertation. In my
experiment, I need to make my participants experience a time delay. I want to
display something on the screen that shows the passage of time (i.e., "counts
up") in days, even though they are experiencing it in seconds. For example,
while the participant is experiencing the delay, I want to have the screen
display something like, "It has been 2 days since you have contacted your
partner". I would like to have the "2" change to a "3" after 10 seconds, and
then to a "4" after another 10 seconds, etc. Eventually after several days
have passed, they will move onto a new screen. I have already used
systemseconds to put a time delay into a different authorware piece (i.e., so
that participants could only access something after a certain amount of time),
so I know how to do that. However, I am not even sure where to start with
displaying the "count up", particularly displaying it in such a way that it
doesn't actually show the number of seconds that have passed, but a
corresponding amount of time.
If this doesn't make sense or needs clarification please let me know. I
appreciate any and all advice!!
