hello everybody,

For a university project study I need to make an array that looks like:

Do you:
smoke? No Yes [Number]per day
Drink No Yes [Number] per day

and so on....
is a single answer per row with an added number input.


Thank you for your time.

That is a normal array question. You can choose your scale (in this case "Yes / No". I think there is even a "Yes / No" scale already built in, but it includes "yes / no / uncertain".

But just choose the normal array question and you are totally free to create your own array header.

Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Thank you for your answer. Yes it is a yes/no question but the third field should be a text field or number field. Maybe I did not explained clearly enough. I know that I can choose array I define the header and the rows but my question is if I can customize the row content to have mixed content

to be like:

Question text

Answer1 [radio button]No [radio button]Yes [number input]some text
Answer2 [radio button]No [radio button]Yes [number input]some text


the two radio buttons to be like a single answer per row and the number input mandatory if yes selected.

I presume I need some javascript for this. I have seen the topic with grouping of items but is not very doable when you have a list of 50 questions in an array to make this kind of question grouping. That's why I as if is a way to make my own custom array with NO/Yes and a input text.

You will need to add a multiple-short-text question after the array and use JavaScript to move the text inputs into the array.

Here is a similar solution - www.limesurvey.org/en/forum/design-issue...to-text-input#102550
