Explain prompts


Is it possible to detect whether the explain prompt attached to a maths input has been submitted?

The only submitted sources for math seem to be for the original expression input.

There’s a source for the explain prompt content. You can use isBlank to see if anything has been entered, or, if you use initialContent, see it is equivalent.

I don’t think that’s useful though. That will tell if they’ve started typing a response. What I need to know is if they’ve finished.

It might be easiest to hook up a button and text input to get the desired behaviour, rather than using the ‘explain’ that’s built in to the Math Input?

I could do that, but I’m not sure it’s worth the effort in this instance.
