My experiments with Captivate widgets was mainly at the Static and Interactive Widget levels. Tonight, I took a look at the Question Widget. In order to better understand the concept, I decided to recreate the JumbleWord Question Widget in AS3. Cp4 doesn’t have an AS3 version and it’s also missing from Cp5. So, I’m offering to the community a JumbledWord AS3 widget. While redoing it, I corrected some of the shortcomings of the AS2 version. If the question is incomplete, Captivate will not allow you to submit the question and once submitted, the tiles cannot be dragged anymore. I also improved the tiles dragging: you can now swap tiles in the word. If you drag a tile on top of an already placed tile, the previous tile will be kicked out of its current location. If I find some time, I will improve on the interactivity and if someone with good graphic skills comes across this widget and is interested to jazz it up a bit, contact me.
