[solved] mouseclick response to advance

xuanxuan Posts: 6
edited January 2014 in OpenSesame

how do I advance to the next item right away after a single mouseclick? I am using the sampler tool for my stimuli and the sketchpad as feedback (for about 750ms). The feedback only appears after I click twice to respond. Then, I have to click again to advance to the next item. Is there a way to have the feedback appear right after the mouseclick response and automatically advance to the next stimulus? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Xuan,

    I suspect that you have the sampler wait for a button press, and also have a mouse_response following that. Hence two button presses are required. Is that correct?

    The following sequence should work:

    • sampler duration set to 0, so OpenSesame advances right away to the next item
    • mouse_response
    • feedback

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,
    Sebastiaan

    Thank you for the prompt reply. After setting the sampler duration to 0, only one mouse response was needed. That's fixed =). But I still need to click to advance to the next item to play after the feedback. Do you mean using the feedback or sketchpad for giving feedback? I used sketchpad because I wanted to give immediate feedback after every trial.

    Have you tried setting the sketchpad's duration? It sounds like it's still on 'buttonpress'.

    Hi Xuan,

    Right, like Edwin says. Also, you way want to read the following entries in the documentation. They explain a bit more about how to handle responses and how to give feedback (notably the difference between sketchpad and feedback items).

    Thanks Edwin and Sebastian,

    I set the sketchpad's duration to 750 ms, which I mentioned earlier. On second thought, having the subjects to click before advancing helps them prepare for the next stimuli. Your information has been very helpful. Thank you.
