Hello,

I am trying to create on experiment during which participants will sort images. I want them to do this by dragging and dropping them into either the red or the blue rectangle. See code below. Even though I'm using dragdrop and dropsource and droptarget, it does not seem to work. Any advice on what is wrong?

Once this works I also want to save in which rectangle a participant has placed each image, I guess I should save this by saving the position on the screen?



<shape bluecircle>
/ shape = rectangle
/ color = (0, 0, 200)
/ position = (80%, 50%)
/ droptarget = true
/ size = (20%, 20%)

</picture>

<picture egg6>

/ position = (20%, 10%)

I managed to get it to work, thanks! One more question about this. Is it also possible to keep looping the trials until the participant presses a certain button? (i.e. that the participant can determine when the stop the task)

Yes, that's possible. Taking the 1st example I posted here, you would do it like this:

<instruct>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.8%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/ txcolor = (white)
/ screencolor = black
</instruct>

I managed to get it to work, thanks! One more question about this. Is it also possible to keep looping the trials until the participant presses a certain button? (i.e. that the participant can determine when the stop the task)

Yes, that's possible. Taking the 1st example I posted here, you would do it like this:

Sorry for butting in here.
But this script will help me a lot in my new experiment. My query is that - at present in this script, participant has to drag only one of the positive / negative words. How to do it in a way that participant has to drag both positive and negative words on to targets before he/she is taken to next set of words.
Thanks
 Abhi

You need to run two trials in sequence -- one for the 1st word the participant decides to drag to its position, followed by a second one for the 2nd word. Then start the next two-trial sequence for the next set of two words.

Thanks Dave. Sorry not clear. How to ensure that the next trial is the same set of the words as the previous one ?

I managed to get it to work, thanks! One more question about this. Is it also possible to keep looping the trials until the participant presses a certain button? (i.e. that the participant can determine when the stop the task)

Yes, that's possible. Taking the 1st example I posted here, you would do it like this:

<instruct>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.8%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/ txcolor = (white)
/ screencolor = black
</instruct>

<page intro>
^In the following task, you will be presented with negative words related to outcomes of smoking or with positive words you may experience if you quit smoking. You will also see an image of a cigarette, and the word 'me' on the page.
~n~nYour task is to:
~n* Drag the negative words away from you and towards the cigarette.
Drag the positive words towards the word 'me'.
~n~nPress the spacebar to begin.
</page>

<page end>
^This is the end.
</page>

Sorry for butting in here.
But this script will help me a lot in my new experiment. My query is that - at present in this script, participant has to drag only one of the positive / negative words. How to do it in a way that participant has to drag both positive and negative words on to targets before he/she is taken to next set of words.
Thanks
 Abhi

You need to run two trials in sequence -- one for the 1st word the participant decides to drag to its position, followed by a second one for the 2nd word. Then start the next two-trial sequence for the next set of two words.

Thanks Dave. Sorry not clear. How to ensure that the next trial is the same set of the words as the previous one ?

Something along the following lines:

<item negative>
/1 = "lung cancer"
/2 = "addiction"
/3 = "heart disease"
/4 = "clogged arteries"
/5 = "blindness"
/6 = "amputation"
/7 = "death"
/8 = "tongue cancer"
/9 = "throat cancer"
/10 = "gangrene"
</item>

<item positive>
/1 = "healthy"
/2 = "vibrant"
/3 = "free"
/4 = "happy"
/5 = "in control"
/6 = "long life"
/7 = "energetic"
/8 = "refreshed"
/9 = "good"
/10 = "rewarding"
</item>

<item smoking>
/1 = "smoking"

Thanks for this Dave. Working perfect.

I still have'nt understood the 'value function' so far. That's the key, I think.

One last thing- In this script participant cannot undo the decision of drag /drop. i.e., if he/she changes his/her mind after dragging, that can't be done. What is the command for that ?  Thanks.
