How To Control the Topics width in Grid questions rendered as Two Statement or Table layout

August 31, 2015 Leave a comment

 

Overview

 

When using a Grid question with a Table layout rendering mode or a Two statement table layout you may sometimes wish to change the width of topics or answers cell.

Answers cells width cannot be controlled but you can control the width of the topics cells.

 

Step 1: Create a grid question with a table layout, flipped table layout or two statement layout rendering mode:


 

Step 2: Change Topic percentage

 

In the topic percentage text box enter a number between 1 and 100.

The column width will be relative to the screen resolution on which the interview will run.

For example if you’ll enter 50 for the topic percentage then the topic column width will be half of the size of the table.

That’s it!

How To Dynamically Display Answer Images based on an answer of a question

August 24, 2015 Leave a comment

 

Overview

Part of the SurveyToGo features is the ability to attach and display images as answers. One way is to assign images manually to each answer, as you can learn in this link:http://support.dooblo.net/entries/22814656-How-to-add-images-to-Answers-and-Topics

In this How To, you’ll learn a dynamic way to assign and display images as answers based on an answer of a question.

 

 

Step 1: Add the wanted images to the survey

All images used, need to be uploaded to the survey. To upload images files to the survey, go to the survey’s advanced tab, click on the “Edit survey attachments” link and add your files through the “New” button:

 

Step 2: Create Attachment Source

 For example let’s assume the question I would like to base my answers images has the following 3 answers:


Then these are the steps you should follow:

  1. Go to the survey Advanced tab and open the “Edit attachment source” link:

 

  1. Click on the “+” button to add the attachment source, and name it as you will. To add images to the attachment source, you need to use this code:

    list.AddFromAttachment(“ImageName”);

    “ImageName” should be replaced with a name of an image you uploaded to the survey.

    For each answer you have in the question you should have a part in your script which adds the images for this answers.

    In each part, each image you’ll add to the attachment source will be displayed for each answer, according to the order you added in. For example, in the screen shot below, you see the “Country” attachment source, where we have 3 “if” statements and in each of them three images are added. This means that in the question I’ll use this attachment source, the coca-cola image will be displayed in answer index 1, the sprit4e image will be displayed in answer index 2, and the Fanta image will be displayed in answer index 3.


    When you finish with the attachment source, click “OK”.

 

Step 3: Assign the attachment source to the question

Go to the question’s Advanced tab, and choose the relevant attachment source to be defined for the “AnswerAttachmentSource” property:


 

 

The attached sample survey will show you an example of the method described above.

In order to test the sample, you’ll need to perform the following:

Every survey in SurveyToGo has a name and ID. When you contact us for assistance and refer us to a survey (the issue or question is related to) we would want to receive the Survey ID which is the unique identifier of the survey and will make sure we are looking at the correct survey.

How To Filter Answers/Topics based on additional data lists

July 28, 2015 Leave a comment

Overview

 

There are many cases where you have two different Answer/Topics lists in two different questions, where one list relies on the other and the responses given in one question will determine the Answers/Topics displayed on the other. One example is Car brands and Car models. Selecting specific brands in one question will determine which models will be displayed on the second.

A good way to perform such filters is using an external data list that will hold both lists and the filtering code will be based on its content.

 

The attached sample will show you an example of this filtering need.

 

In order to test the sample, you’ll need to perform the following:

  • Import the attached .srv file. Click here to see how to import a survey into your account.
  • Create the additional data list from the attached excel file. Click here to learn how to create an additional data list in your account. Make sure to call the data list “CitiesFilterSample” so it will match the script.
  • Add the additional data list to the sample survey: By default the survey is not imported with the subject store assigned to it. Go to the survey’s Advanced tab -> Edit Subject Store -> mark the subject store you see as “deleted” and click on “Remove”. And add the new data list you’ve created with the “New from common” button.

 

 

That’s it!
