Hey CTAT-team,

when a student clicks the Done button in an CTAT-Flash-interface before having entered anything, CTAT displays this message in the hint window:

"I'm sorry, but you are not done yet. Please continue working"!

Can this message be changed? I wasn't able to find an option for that in CTAT or the CTAT-Flash-components.

Thanks,
Alex

Hoi,

It looks like that message is hard coded in the tracer/behavior recorder. For the dev team
here as a reference it is set in TutorController.java and is a static called: NOT_DONE_MSG

I think it's reasonable that this is configurable however, maybe as a graph parameter. I will
bring it up with the team here to see if we can change this.

Cheers,

Martin

Ah, okay. The reason I'm asking is, that I have authored my tutors in German language, so having that one English clause remaining there creates a slight inconsistency. However, I'm sure my students will manage anyway ;-)

It's a totally fair question though. I've already started work towards supporting internationalization by making a lot of the hardcoded strings in the flash file parameters in the CommShell. This is just one we hadn't thought about. Important though.

While testing, I just stumbled upon another message that appears to be hardcoded and thus might be a candidate for making it user-editable:

"Please click on the highlighted button".

It is shown when the right solution has been entered, but the student nonetheless clicks on the Help-button instead of the Done-button.

Hoi there,

We've made a note of it. If you find any more of those please let me know. We'll see if can
start to construct things like language packs.

Cheers,

Hoi,

It's been a long time coming but in our upcoming HTML5 release we provide authors with
a way to modify all built-in strings with custom ones. You can preview the documentation

Hi Martin,

grateful for the contribution. I managed to change the captions of the buttons, but in the option "NOTDONE": "I'm sorry, but you are not done yet. Please continue working.", Has not been modified. What's the problem?

In this tutor, the message has been changed to "Please answer all the questions before moving on." with the following in the HTML <head> element. Be sure to use  https://cdn.ctat.cs.cmu.edu/releases/beta/ctat.min.js as shown. Thanks

<html>
  <head>
      . . .
      var CTATLanguagePack = {
      "NOTDONE" : "Please answer all the questions before moving on.",
      "NEXTPROBLEM": "Retrieving the next page ...",
      "CONGRATULATIONS_YOU_ARE_DONE": "Great job! You have finished reflecting on your practice today!",
      };
    </script>
    <script src="https://cdn.ctat.cs.cmu.edu/releases/beta/ctat.min.js"></script>

Thank you very much for your feedback.
However, the problem still remains. The screens are attached. What's still wrong?

Please try replacing lines 10-15 of your .html (CTAT.css through jquery.min.js) with these lines 
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://cdn.ctat.cs.cmu.edu/releases/beta/CTAT.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Assets/reflection.css">
    <script src="https://cdn.ctat.cs.cmu.edu/releases/beta/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://cdn.ctat.cs.cmu.edu/releases/beta/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

and insert this line after line 28 (ctat.min.js)

Also, if you're testing with the CTAT authoring tools, please exit and restart the CTAT program, for it can cache old versions of files. 

If these steps don't help, please zip and send me the files in your tutor, so that I can try to reproduce the trouble here. Thanks,
