Hi! 
I wanted to let you know about a potential bug.
I have a trial in which the valid response options are any of a set of pictures (they look like buttons but are picture elements).

When I use the list element to store the pictures and then refer to the list in the /validresponse subcommand, I have to double-click on a picture to interrupt (end) the trial.
In contrast, when I list each picture element separately in the /validresponse subcommand, I need only click once on a picture to interrupt (end) the trial.

I don't think that it should work that way.

Also, I have a question. Is there a relatively easy way to "animate" the picture element when it is clicked on (i.e., to acknowledge the mouse click)?

Thank you!

(1) Can you provide example code illustrating the issue? Ii's not entirely clear what "[w]hen I use the list element to store the pictures and then refer to the list in the /validresponse subcommand" means, this could look a number of different ways.

(2) Regarding changing the image in some way to acknowledge the click, you'll want to look at using /responsemessage.

Here are the relevant code snippets:

Thank you for the example. I think there is a misconception here.

This

<trial LadderA> 
/ skip = [values.ageyr >17]
/ pretrialpause = 500
/ inputdevice = mouse 
/ stimulusframes = [1=ladderAfam, skip
rung01, rung02, rung03, rung04, rung05,
rung06, rung07, rung08, rung09, rung10]  
/ validresponse = (list.rungs)
/ responseinterrupt = immediate 
/ timeout = 240000  
/ ontrialend = [
  trial.LadderSocial;
  values.ladderAresponse = trial.LadderA.response
  ]
</trial>

is not, in fact, equivalent to

<trial LadderA> 
/ skip = [values.ageyr >17]
/ pretrialpause = 500
/ inputdevice = mouse 
/ stimulusframes = [1=ladderAfam, skip
rung01, rung02, rung03, rung04, rung05,
rung06, rung07, rung08, rung09, rung10]  
/ validresponse = (picture.skip,
picture.rung01,
picture.rung02,
picture.rung03,
picture.rung04,
picture.rung05,
picture.rung06,
picture.rung07,
picture.rung08,
picture.rung09,
picture.rung10
)

/ responseinterrupt = immediate 
/ timeout = 240000  
/ ontrialend = [
  trial.LadderSocial;
  values.ladderAresponse = trial.LadderA.response
  ]
</trial>

/ validresponse = (list.rungs) just means the list is queried when some response occurs. That does not mean the list will happen to return the object that happens to match the response at that point. In other words,

/ validresponse = (list.rungs) does not expand to /validresponse = (picture.skip, picture.rung01, picture.rung02, ..., picture.rung10)

If you wanted to do that, you would have to actually reference the specific items on the list. I.e.

<list mylist>
/ items = (text.a, text.b, text.c)
</list>

<trial mytrial>
/ posttrialpause = 500
/ stimulusframes = [1=a,b,c]
/ inputdevice = mouse
/ validresponse = (list.mylist.items.1, list.mylist.items.2, list.mylist.items.3)
</trial>

<text a>
/ items = ("A")
/ position = (45%, 50%)
</text>

<text b>
/ items = ("B")
/ position = (50%, 50%)
</text>

<text c>
/ items = ("C")
/ position = (55%, 50%)
</text>
