    stop a movie file to display a text box.

    I have an experiment where I want a movie file to play and then when the participant hits the space bar, I want the movie to stop and a text box to appear so that they can type in an answer. So I have my file set up so that the movie plays and then the text box is the next stimulus and it is supposed to clear the last screen (the movie)-- but the movie continues to play while the text box is up. I dont need to resume the movie-- i just want RT to the movie and then their typed answer. I have attached my file.

    stop movie for text response

    Hi Blair--

    this example does not work the way I want it to. No matter when i hit the space bar to start typing a response into the text box, the movie continues to play until the end. I need it to stop the movie, put up the text box and then, after a response is typed, move on to the next trial.
