Hi all,

I am wondering if there is an easy way to have a vertical slider? Instead of moving the slider to the left and to the right, I would like to turn the slider by 90° and move it up and down. Any ideas? My search for "vertical slider" did not yield any results so far.

Best regards

Andreas

Well, not out of the box but I got to playing a bit and wrote a small jQuery plugin to apply vertical sliders to multi-numeric questions.

1) Create your multi-numeric question. Do NOT use any of the slider advanced settings.

2) Add the following to the end of template.js. Replace "QQ" (line 5) with the question ID and adjust the options in the function call as desired.
$(document).ready(function(){
 
	// Call the vertical slider plugin with the question ID
	// Edit options here as desired
	$('#questionQQ').lsVerticalSlider({
		minValue		:0,	// Minimum value (default 0)
		maxValue		:200,	// Maximum value (default 100) 
		startValue		:100,	// Start value (default null)
		step			:10,	// Slider increments (default 1)
		height			:100,	// Height of slider in pixels (default 200)
		recordStart		:true,	// Record the start value? (default no)
		showMin			:true,	// Show minimum value? (default no)
		showMax			:true	// Show maximum value? (default no)
	});
 
});
 
// NO EDITING REQUIRED BELOW HERE
 
// A jQuery plugin to convert multiple-numeric questions to vertical sliders
(function( $ ){
 
	$.fn.lsVerticalSlider = function(options) {  
 
		// The defaults, extended and modified with any passed in the function call
		var opts = $.extend( {
			minValue		:0, 
			maxValue		:100, 
			startValue		:'',
			step			:1,
			height			:150, 
			recordStart		:false,
			showMin			:false,
			showMax			:false
		}, options);
 
		return this.each(function() { 
 
			var $this = $(this);
 
			// Some classes for the question and sub-questions
			$this.addClass('vertical-slider-question');
			$('li:[id^="javatbd"]', $this).addClass('vertical-slider-sub-question');
 
			// Loop through the sub-questions
			$('li:[id^="javatbd"]', $this).each(function(i){
 
				var itemID = $(this).attr('id').replace(/javatbd/, '');
 
				// Check for pre-existing answer
				if($('#answer'+itemID).val() != '') {
					opts.startValue = $('#answer'+itemID).val();
				}
 
				// Insert the slider elements
				$('#answer'+itemID).after(
					'<div class="vertical-slider-max-min" style="height:'+(opts.height+2)+'px;"> \
						<div class="vertical-slider-max"></div> \
						<div class="vertical-slider-min"></div> \
					</div> \
					<div id="vertical-slider-'+itemID+'" class="vertical-slider" style="height:'+opts.height+'px;"></div> \
					<div class="vertical-slider-callout-wrapper" style="height:'+(opts.height+2)+'px;"> \
						<div class="vertical-slider-callout" id="slider-callout-'+itemID+'"></div> \
					</div>'
				);
 
				// Show min/max if option is set
				if(opts.showMax) {
					$('.vertical-slider-max', $this).text(opts.maxValue);
				}
				if(opts.showMin) {
					$('.vertical-slider-min', $this).text(opts.minValue);
				}
 
				// Initiate the slider
				$('#vertical-slider-'+itemID).slider({
					orientation: 'vertical',
					range: 'min',
					min: opts.minValue,
					max: opts.maxValue,
					value: opts.startValue,
					step: opts.step,
					slide: function(event, ui) {
						$('#answer'+itemID).val(ui.value);
						$('#slider-callout-'+itemID).text(ui.value);
						setTimeout(function() { 
							$('#slider-callout-'+itemID).css({ 'bottom':$('#vertical-slider-'+itemID+' .ui-slider-handle').css('bottom') }).show();
						}, 10);
					},
					create: function(event, ui) {
						// Initial values and positions
						if($('#answer'+itemID).val() != '') { // Pre-existing answer
							$('#slider-callout-'+itemID).text(opts.startValue);
						}
						else if(opts.recordStart) { // Record the start value (if option is set)
							$('#answer'+itemID).val(opts.startValue);
							$('#slider-callout-'+itemID).text(opts.startValue);
						}
						else {
							$('#slider-callout-'+itemID).hide();
						}
						$('#slider-callout-'+itemID).css({ 'bottom':$('#vertical-slider-'+itemID+' .ui-slider-handle').css('bottom') });
					}
				});
			});
		});
 
	};
})( jQuery );

3) Add the following to the end of template.css (these styles are for the default template):
/* Vertical slider styles and overrides */	
 
.vertical-slider-question p.tip {
	display: none;
}
 
.vertical-slider-sub-question {
	float: left;
	margin: 0 3em 0 0 !important;
}
 
.vertical-slider-question label {
	display: block;
	padding: 0 0 0.75em 0 !important;
}
 
.vertical-slider-question span.input {
	padding: 0.3em 0 0 0;
	display: block;
}
 
.vertical-slider-question input.text {
	display: none;
}
 
.vertical-slider {
	float: left;
	border-radius: 4px;
}
 
.vertical-slider-question .ui-slider-handle {
	top: auto;
	border-radius: 4px;
}
 
.vertical-slider-max-min,
.vertical-slider-callout-wrapper {
	float: left;
	position: relative;
}
 
.vertical-slider-callout-wrapper {
	min-width: 3em;
}
 
.vertical-slider-max-min {
	margin-right: 0.5em;
}
 
.vertical-slider-max,
.vertical-slider-min {
	font-size: 0.8em;
	color:#666666;
	line-height: 1;
}
 
.vertical-slider-max {
	margin-top: -0.5em;
}
 
.vertical-slider-min {
	position: absolute;
	right: 0;
	bottom: 0;
	margin-bottom: -0.5em;
}
 
.vertical-slider-callout {
	position: absolute;
	top: auto;
	margin: 0 0 -0.6em 0.5em;
	padding: 0.1em;
	font-size: 0.9em;
	color:#000000;
	line-height: 1;
	background: #F8F8FF;
	border: 1px solid #D2E0F2;
	border-radius: 4px;
}

So, the result is:

Here is a sample survey and template. Note that in this sample, to make it more portable, I have called the plugin using more generic selectors (simply the first and second questions) instead of using the question IDs.

This solution sounds great and would be exactly the thing I'm looking for right now.
Unfortunatly, I'm not able to make it work and I'm wondering if it's my fault or if I could blame it on somebody else - does this work for 2.00+?

Also, this should be working, no matter what template I'm using, shouldn't it?

1) The workaround does work in LS 2.0.

2) It should work in any template with some small changes to the styles.

Attached are a demo survey and it's associated template (a modified version of the default template shipped with 2.0).

Yes, in fact, the plugin was originally developed in LS 1.92.

Here is a working survey and template for 1.92.

vertical slider 6 months 3 weeks ago #107286

I imported the "default_vertical_sliders_2" template and "DEMO - Vertical slider" survey into L.S. 2.05+ (build 140302). Could not get the sliders to work, see attached image.
Did I overlook something here?

The default_vertical_sliders_2 template is for 2.0, not 2.05. Use the first template attached above (default_vertical_sliders.zip).
