Hmm. In this case, you know the condition of failure, so if everything else is working as you need, i'd just check for that condition and act accordingly.. if char 1 of the last item of tInstructions is "W" and the number of items of tInstructions > 1 then.. Do you want tInstructions to be empty

Hi Mike, Thanks for your answer! The exercises are actually binary exercises but the children don't know. All they know is a 'puzzle' to solve with pixelcoloring. Funny I can solve it this way :-) Still figuring how to do it because the children instruction is not just binary writing as you

If you want to know which "pixel" is on in a row, you could treat them as binary bits. Farthest right in a row is bit 1, next to the left is bit 2.. So your buttons could be 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 64 32 16 8 4 2 1 for a total of 21 which would

Thanks for your reply! Your app is the same as what I did before and that's quit easy to do. For now I want to build instruction cards based upon a pixel drawing. First you makel your drawing and then it gives you your instruction card. The other way around. My question is how to do that?

Hi there, This is quite a challenge for me. I an trying to build a template in which users (small children) can 'pixeldraw' something and based on the drawing the instruction will be made. The instruction is needed for other children to make the pixel drawing. The instruction is quite special.
