Prevent unchecking selection for Choose Your Own Adventure?

  1. John

    Trying to figure how to start this new project, it will be similar to a Choose your own adventure story so it's important that someone can't check and uncheck selections to see possible outcomes or variables.

    Example.
    Choice 1: You are in a room with 5 objects, select object A, B, C, D, E.
    Choice 2: You go to next room that has 5 different objects, select: F, G, H, I, J.
    Choice 3: etc, etc

    After someone selects Choice 1 and are at Choice 2 I don't want them to be able to go back and change Choice 1.

    How could I get this started/structured in GF? Thoughts?
    Thanks,

  2. Will you be doing this with multiple forms or a multi-page form? Or just a single page form?

    Good question, not sure. There will be only about 5 questions so it won't be huge. I'm just trying to see what would prevent returning to change your choice (thinking multi-page form) and still compile all your selections in 1 final entry.

  4. You will probably have to either hide the back button (which can be done with CSS) in a multi-page form, or you can try to disable the browser back button functionality. Not everyone appreciates when you do that (mess with browser default functionality.)

    The visitor could always load the form all over again and make a different choice if they wanted, somewhere along the way. How will you handle that situation?
