2.0: Insert A Pause

    Thank you for your help with this. I have two additional questions:


    1) How do we simply tell EPrime to pause and resume the experiment. The script is a little confusing and I'm not sure what we can extract from it for our use.


    2) At what point do we enter the script? We have a pretty lengthy overall script at the beginning of the experiment- should we just insert this new script at the end of that one? Or does it belong elsewhere?

    Thank you!

    The sample demonstrates two method to "pause" the experiment. In the first block, it uses a conditional exit (e.g. x number of trials then pause). The second block uses the UserBreakState method to pause the experimetn when the Ctrl+Shift key is pressed. 

     The InLine CheckForCtrlShift, runs the Pause2 TextDisplay object from the Unreferenced E-Objects if Ctrl+Shift is pressed. The user can press Ctrl+Shift during the trial and Pause2 will run once the current trial completes.

    Please also see 5105 - FEATURE: Ability to customize UserBreakState, ConditionalExit, and SystemAbortWatch key sequences and 2634 - FEATURE: Conditional Exit (Graceful Abort).
