Hi,



I am new to Inquisit and I am unfamiliar with how to edit the input devices and their functions. We want to run a simple IAT that is entirely based on touchscreen functions. I downloaded the example touchscreen and I've read the script but I can't find out how to implement the touchscreen function into a more standard IAT. I also would like to take out any keyboard responses (the sample one requires that you hit enter on the keyboard) as our tablet does not transition to keyboard very well.


If someone could just point out the code (I'm not sure how I'm missing it) I'm sure I can figure out how to copy and paste and alter it.



Thanks



Chris

Touchscreen input essentially works just like mouse input. You set /inputdevice to touchscreen or mouse and define the objects (e.g. <text> elements) subjects are supposed to touch or click on in the <trial> elements' /validresponse and /correctresponse attributes (examples are available in the documentation) instead of the keyboard buttons. Navigating instruction pages should work just as well -- simply touch or click on the navigation button to move on.


Regards,

Hello!


I don't know if I understood right but it reads like there is a demo skript for touchscreens. I didn't find it, so may someone provide the link to that file?



Thanks in advance,


Ewald

See e.g. the "IAT with Touchscreen responses" script at the bottom of https://www.millisecond.com/download/samples/v2/default.aspx.
