Dear all,

For questions such as Name, I'd like to put the "short free text" answer box at the same line as the question. The purpose is to make the survey look shorter. I have played with the template with on luck. Any suggestions? Thanks!

If you ask more than one short text, try multi short text.

If you want answers with questions in one row, edit the template file question.pstlp

To get this:

Attachment name_same_row.png not found



remove two lines from the default template:

Attachment name_same_row_edit.png not found



but this will change all appearence of question and answer.

look here for changes on a single question:

In the template I am dealing with, <div> is used. I could use div {display: inline;} to make it happen. But as you said, that will mess up the whole layout. I guess this is no easy work-around at this time. Thank you!

If your template uses <div> elements, you should be able to use JavaScript to wrap the question and answer divs in a new div and then display them inline. The script would only affect the parent question.

Can you attach an export of your template or activate a test survey?

Below is the code from question.pstpl. My understanding is that it applies to all questions.

<div {QUESTION_ESSENTIALS} class="{QUESTION_CLASS}{QUESTION_MAN_CLASS}{QUESTION_INPUT_ERROR_CLASS}">
<div class="survey-question">
<div class="survey-question-text">
<!-- {QUESTION_CODE}: --><span class="asterisk">{QUESTION_MANDATORY}</span><span class="qnumcode">{QUESTION_NUMBER} {QUESTION_CODE}. </span>{QUESTION_TEXT}<br />
<span class="questionhelp">{QUESTION_HELP}</span>
{QUESTION_MAN_MESSAGE}
{QUESTION_VALID_MESSAGE}
{QUESTION_FILE_VALID_MESSAGE}
</div>
<div class="survey-question-answer">{ANSWER}</div>

</div>
<div class="survey-question-space"></div>
</div>

Oh, that's even easier than I thought. The question and answer divs already have a wrapper div.

Set up your survey to use JavaScript and add this to the question source. This script will apply a new "inlineAnswer" class to the question.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
	$(document).ready(function(){
		$('#question{QID}').addClass('inlineAnswer');
	});
</script>


Then you can add something like this to the end of template.css:
/** Inline answer questions **/
 
.inlineAnswer .survey-question-text,
.inlineAnswer .survey-question-answer {
	float: left;
}

I think you can also remove the <br /> tag in question.pstpl to get rid of some of the whitespace under the question. The following spans are set to display block so should end up on new lines anyway.

It is not working in my case. I tried IE, Firebox, Chrome, and Opera. I tried adding display: inline; right after float: left; in the template.css and that did not help either.

I activated the survey at survey.bluevalleyk12.org/index.php?sid=28238&lang=en so that you can take a look. Thank you very much for your help!
