Need Variable Names for Matching Items

heidi Community Member Posts: 72 ☆ Roadie ☆
When creating a Matching Type Question in Lectora Inspire, we want to do additional programming beyond what is built in to this type of question. For example, when the user selects a matching item from Left Column and Right Column, to highlight those matches with a specific color...or to have the Feedback reset ONLY the ones that were matched incorrectly.

Can anyone tell me the Variable Naming convention that is "behind the scenes" for each item in the Left Column and each Item in the Right Column. Alternatively, we may use Drag and Drop and the same question stands: what are the underlying variable names for each drag item? Hope this makes sense...I know I used these variables once before but it was a long time ago, and I believe Trivantis provided them to me. Thanks, Heidi

    Both the name of the variable and the names of the items can be found (and edited) in the question creator. The value of the variable is built from the item names, e.g. "L1-R2,L2-R1".
