Hi,
I am looking for a solution, I think it's necessary to use javascript, but unfortunately I can't write javascript :blush: :( .
Well, I need a text-array-question with suffix like in the fake-image at the bottom.
In one column I ask for gains in € and in the next column I asked for percentage.
All in all the question is very complex and the suffixs would be a great help for the participants.
Beside this, I have a similar problem with a multiple options question with comments, it would be great to have suffix also there.

I would be very grateful, if you could help me.

1) Set up your survey to use JavaScript.

2) Add the following script to the source of the array. Replace "12345" with the array question ID and modify the suffixes as required.

The function call must consist of a question ID followed by the suffixes yo want in each column. Suffixes must be enclosed in quotes and comma separated.

So, in the example, question ID 12345 will get an "in €" suffix in the first column and an "in %" in the next 3 columns.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Call the function with the question ID followed by a comma-separated list of suffixes
		addSuffix(12345, 'in €', 'in %', 'in %', 'in %');
 
		function addSuffix() {
 
			var qID = $(arguments)[0];
 
			// Assign some column-specific classes
			$('#question'+qID+' table.question tbody tr').each(function(i){
				$('td', this).each(function(i){
					$(this).addClass('answerCol-'+(i+1)+'');
				});
			});
 
			// Some styling
			$('#question'+qID+' table.question tbody input[type="text"]').css({
				'width': '50%'
			});
 
			// Insert the suffixes
			$(arguments).each(function(i, val){
				if(i > 0) {
					$('#question'+qID+' td.answerCol-'+i+' label').append(val);
				}
			});
		}
	});
 
</script>

Very nice, Tpartner!

I would volunteer to put this into the work around section.

Just one quick question, because it might be only a small difference: is it possible to do prefixes with this as well?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

You should be able to do so by changing this:
$('#question'+qID+' td.answerCol-'+i+' label').append(val);

To this:
$('#question'+qID+' td.answerCol-'+i+' label').prepend(val);

Works like a charm and is added to the workaround section:

Hey, nice Code, thank you for this.

I am in a need for a bit different solution and wanted you to ask if this is possible.

Is it possible to use a suffix in only one column ?
Or, the other way around, is it possible to hide suffixes of specific columns?
(I have build an optional list, and i just need one suffix for the "others" input mask.)

If you have an idea i would love to hear it.

Best regards,
mozart

If you only want the suffix in the last column, do something like this:
		// Call the function with the question ID followed by a comma-separated list of suffixes
		addSuffix(12345, '', '', '', 'Other Suffix');
