Hi everyone, 
I am trying to create a trial with a stimuli image, a question underneath it, and two response options. The question should be in white color font while the two response options should be in black font inside a white textbox. However, when I run the code all the test items are black font inside a white textbox. 

Could someone please help?
I also cannot get participants to actively click on the textboxes to move fowards as the "validresponse" line does not work.

Here is my code:

*****ITEMS & STIMULI *****
<text DetectionQuestion>
/ items = DetectionQuestion
/ position = (50, 70)
/ select = sequence
/ txcolor = (white)
/fontstyle = ("Arial", 3.0%, true, false, false, false, 5, 1)
</text>

<item DetectionQuestion>
/1 = "Did this statement correct earlier misinformation?"
</item>

<text NoDetection>
/ items = ("0 - No")
/ position = (25%, 80%)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)

The default screen color is white as is the default txbgcolor, so:
(1) You won't see the white font <text DetectionQuestion> at all against the white background.
(2) You won't see any "white box" around the two response options against the white background.

Set your /screencolor to black per <defaults>. Set /txbgcolor = black for the detection question <text> element.

/ validresponse = (NoDetection, YesDetection)

</trial>

It works perfectly fine. Note that you have fixed the trial's duration to 8 seconds, so you'll wait a couple of seconds before the next trial starts.

Thank you very much it worked, great help!!
Is there anyway to keep the stimuli and text elements on the screen even after participants have made their response?

Best,

Set their /erase attributes to false if you want them to remain on-screen.
