Hi all,
Would anyone have an idea how I could capture the time remaining on a timer for Question 1 and display that value in Questions 2. Question 2 is on a separate page as part of a "report".

Any thoughts, as always, are most appreciated.

David

I would place a short-text question in the same group (on the same page) directly after the timed question.JavaScript could be used to hide the short-text and load it with the timer text when the page is submitted. You could then use Expression Manager to pipe the value of the hidden question into your report.

1) Add a short-text question in the same group (on the same page) directly after the timed question.

2) Add this script to the source of the timed question:
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
 
	$(document).ready(function(){
 
		// Identify the questions	
		var qID = {QID};	
		var thisQuestion = $('#question'+qID);
		var nextQuestion = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(0)');
 
		// Hide the next question
		$(nextQuestion).hide();
 
		// Interrupt the Next/Submit function
		$('form#limesurvey').submit(function(){
 
			// Override the built-in "disable navigation buttons" feature
			$('#moveprevbtn, #movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').attr('disabled', '');
 
			//  Store the time remaining
			$('input[type="text"]', nextQuestion).val($('#LS_question'+qID+'_Timer').text().replace(/Time remaining/, ''));
 
			return true;
		});
 
	});
</script>

.

Thank you TPartner.
I'll give this a shot...but when I set the timer on a question, it's like I can't proceed to the next page (survey is group by group) until the timer is expired. Is there a setting or something that I'm missing?

Yes, I was missing a setting. But what's weird is that I was misremembering...I can move previous even though the question settings are set to prevent it.

I am using images instead of standard buttons, but like I said, the Advanced settings seem to work fine with respect too the next button.

Perhaps the button id should be renamed?
<img id="alt-prevbtn" class="alt-prevbtn" src="www.springboltconsulting.com/surveyasset...ev_custom2_hover.png">

Hmm. I'll keep fiddling with it. Has anyone else had a similar issue?

Capturing the timer is awesome. Works splendidly. The Buttons don;t seem to respond to the disable command. Maybe it's template specific. I'l update the Forum you if I find out.
Happy new Year TPartner!
