How to check if required objects on the page have been viewed?

I have a page with 5 buttons and 5 information boxes. The information boxes are hidden by default. The user has to click on each button to show linked information box. Also, the user can click in any random order.

I am aware that if these objects were in there own layers I could create an action on stack on onAllLayersViewed but I am not sure about checking page level objects.

What method /approach do you suggest?

Hi Daljit,
The simple answer is you need 2 parts to this.  An event (when ANY of the objects are shown), and a condition (to filter the response to only happen when ALL the objects are currently visible).  You could create Global Variables to keep track of this information, but it's unnecessary in this case because you have objects that are shown, and those objects stick around.  So you can just ask them if they are visible.

Here's a video that walks through how to set up this sort of functionality -
If you have objects that hide (say rollover > show, rollout > hide), then you may want to show another persistent element (like a checkmark shape).  This persistent object could even not be viewable to the learner - perhaps it is placed outside the page boundaries, or behind another object, but you can use it to "remember" what has been done.

Local Variables wouldn't help in this case because they cease to exist at the end of their action.  Currently, there is no "Page Variable" like there was in v3, so they won't be of any help here.  See this video for more information about local variables -
