/ monitor = integer


integer The ordinal number of the monitor.


This attribute specifies which monitor a given stimulus should appear on for experimental paradigms that use multiple display monitors connected to the computer. If the specified monitor number is greater than the number of monitors connected to the system, the stimulus is not displayed. Note that Inquisit assumes all monitors are set the same refresh rate as the first monitor. If this is not the case, timing of stimuli on nonprimary monitors may be off.


The following text is presented on the second monitor connected to the computer:

<text option1>
/ items=("1.jpg", "2.jpg", "3.jpg")
/ monitor=2
