More than welcome
Here are 2 timeline actions to keep the dialogues from overlapping
interactive-prologue.hype 2.zip (58.0 KB)
The whole Speech API is new, and really still in its infancy, so has a long way to go. So learning that would be much harder than, say, a click event, or something dynamic. But Hype does much of this dynamic stuff for you using timelines.
youTube is a great place to start, but search for a pacific function in mind. Or even better google it. Many blogs out there that will help. On here, if you have code you do not understand, just ask and I am sure it will be explained step by step with perhaps greater detail
Take a look at this spelling app I did for me lil girl and her class:
Spelling App.hype.zip (920.7 KB)
Using drag and drop, you have to match the letters in order to make the word
It was certainly fun, and she can spell them all without the app. Was designed for car journeys only really, something for them to do while in traffic
Thanks very much for sharing your resources - its very kind. I’m going to try and get my first webpage together now. I’ll post the first version back up here when its ready. I’d really appreciate any thoughts you might have on it.
Thanks again for all your help!
The best place to learn Hype so far has been on the Forums.
We have lots of folks willing to share and help out.
I have always approached my software education by just jumping in on a project and trial and error until I get stuck and then I start asking for guidance.
And I always save a backup of what works before I break it
For instance with Hype Pro during the beta I just did a small project every day focused on one part of the element inspector.
I would make an animation that used buttons for example and then added physics, filters etc etc. Some of the documents would not make sense to anyone but I learned a lot from each experience.
When I teach applications such as Hype I always have my students work on personal projects that mean something to them. A book about their family, a music playlist etc. And then we apply the technology to their project. That seems to cement all the new technology into their long term memory so they can apply it later on in their daily workload.
Feel free to contact me anytime and I will do my best to share a link or a tip if I have it.
Hi Nick - yes that makes good sense. It sounds like we are quite similar - trying to work things out as you go along. Its both a frustrating and rewarding process!
I’ve got a couple of Hype elements ready now that I am going to try and incorporate into my first webpage - another first step! I have a nav bar and the interactive prologue. Fingers crossed - I may well be back on here in a couple of hours asking for some more help!
OK - knew I’d be back!
@Mr Addy - in the example files you sent to me, there is a ‘Retina @2x’ underneath each graphic file. I assume this is for upscaling to Retina resolution displays? Could you explain how you added this to each graphic, and how it works? (Do I need, for example, two copies of each graphic with one at x2 resolution?)
EDIT - sorry - I’ve just seen that my images have this added automatically as well? How does it work? I’ve been dutifully exporting double copies of all my web images. Is this not needed?
Yeah, Hype does it for you
@MrAddy I am trying to build a quiz where someone could drag multiple text boxes to a column and find out the correct answer. The outline of the text box would be colored green for correct and red for incorrect. Can anyone help I have no programming experience and would like to learn how to build this type of interaction? The quiz would be a widget for a book that I am putting together.
I have the files from the spelling app. How do I get one symbol to recognize its correct location and give the user feedback that it is the correct answer?
you can’t do this without scripting. Give yourself a kick and start your project -> then ask questions to specific problems you have. I’m sure you’ll find lot of help here! But don’t expect someone to offer a ready file for you …
I’ve also posted a drag and drop example here: Checking that Multiple Drops Have Completed
In the spelling app, you would look at the function ‘letterDropped’ and the answer would need to be a class. If you look through the spelling app, you can see each letter of the word has its own class name, so when the letter is dragged it know what class name it’s looking for. In your case, you would want to call the class ‘answer’, and the draggable element ‘questions’ and replace the names from my code to those.
I’ll try and do a mock up a little later, see if it helps, but as above, to learn is to do, so ill do
checkWhenDropped.hype.zip (59.8 KB)
tried to simplify it.
drag the questionelement to an answer, then drop it.
if the answer is right the answerelement will get green …
check the js and the answerelements class to see how it works.
hope this’ll work for you to get further
@h_classen This is great! How do I change it so that when the box is dropped it stays in the place because I want the user to see all of their answers.
