I have updated the code in the workaround to work in IE8 and to be a little more XHTML valid.

The new code is:
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
    $(document).ready(function() {
 
        /*********** 
        Display multiple questions side by side
        ***********/
 
        if ($('div.qRow1').length == 0) {
 
            //////// Add question classes for later use ////////
 
            // Give questions row specific attributes so we can easily manipulate them by row
            $('#question190, #question191, #question192, #question193, #question194').addClass('qRow1 inlineQuestion');
            $('#question195, #question196, #question197, #question198, #question199').addClass('qRow2 inlineQuestion');
            $('#question200, #question201, #question202, #question203, #question204').addClass('qRow3 inlineQuestion');
            $('#question205, #question206, #question207, #question208, #question209').addClass('qRow4 inlineQuestion');
 
            // Give questions column specific classes so we can easily manipulate them by column
            $('#question190, #question195, #question200, #question205').addClass('qCol1');
            $('#question191, #question196, #question201, #question206').addClass('qCol2');
            $('#question192, #question197, #question202, #question207').addClass('qCol3');

            $('#question194, #question199, #question204, #question209').addClass('qCol5');

I am still wondering what the trailing slash is doing here:

<div id="inlineWrapper1" />

I thought that a DIV always needs an opening tag and an closing tag and can not be used like IMG or similar with just one tag?

Hi holch, that trailing slash does close the tag and is valid XHTML.

In this case it doesn't matter though because that tag is just in the script and the actual generated HTML will be:
<div id="inlineWrapper1">...</div>

Oh, and some XHTML validators might whine about those elements being there but that's just because they're not smart enough to realize that the tags are just quoted inside a script.

Hi TPartner!

Thanks for letting me know. I am little "out" of the whole XHTML and CSS stuff. I know that the trailing slash is closing the element, but I was not aware that DIVs could be used this way. I thought this would be limited to some elements like IMG, HR, etc.

My questions have a different size(height). I want to set the height variable like
'height':'100%'

or

'min-height':'30px'

But this doesn't works. How can I set the questions to a different height???

 // Adjust cell heights so everything lines up nicely horizontally
            $( 'td.answer, td.questiontext' ).css({
                'height':'35px',
                'overflow':'hidden'
            });

Option 5?

Can you provide a screenshot showing what you want?

this is what i wanted to post :

This should do the trick.

Create a short-text question and an array question with only one answer. Insert the following script in the source of one of them. Replace "11" (line 5) with the ID of the short-text and "22" (line 6) with the ID of the array you want inline.

Note that the styles inserted here only apply to the default template and you my need to adjust the padding in line 40 if any of your array labels wrap.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
    $(document).ready(function() {
 
        var qText = 11;       
        var qArray = 22;
 
        // Fix the width of the survey
        $( 'table.outerframe' ).css({'width': '900px'});
 
        // Wrap the 2 questions ina container div and style it
        $('#question'+qText+', #question'+qArray+'').wrapAll('<div class="inlineWrapper" />');
        $('.inlineWrapper').append('<div style="clear:both" />');
        $('.inlineWrapper').css({
            'width': '75%',
            'margin':'0 auto 10px auto',
            'background-color':'#FFFFFF'
        });
        $('.inlineWrapper *').css({
            'padding': '0',
            'margin':'0'
        });
 
        // Hide the question and the help text
        $('#question'+qText+' td.questiontext, #question'+qArray+' td.questiontext').parent().hide();
        $('#question'+qText+' > table:eq(1), #question'+qArray+' > table:eq(1)').hide();
        $('#question'+qText+' td.survey-question-help, #question'+qArray+' td.survey-question-help').parent().hide();
 
        //Hide the answer cell of the array
        $('#question'+qArray+' table.question thead tr').children(":first").hide();
        $('#question'+qArray+' table.question tbody tr').children(":first").hide();
        $('#question'+qArray+' col').attr('width', '');
 
        // Push all question tables to 100%
        $('#question'+qText+' table, #question'+qArray+' table').css({'width': '100%'});
 
        // Get the 2 questions to sit politely side by side
        $('#question'+qText+', #question'+qArray+'').css({'float':'left'});
        $('#question'+qText+'').css({'padding':'15px 0 5px 25px'});
        $('#question'+qText+'').css({'padding-top':'27px'}); // Adjust here for wrapped array labels
        $('#question'+qArray+'').css({'padding':'5px 0 10px 0'});
        $('#question'+qArray+' table.question td').css({'padding':'4px'});
        $('#question'+qText+' table:first').attr('align', 'left');
        $('#question'+qText+' label').css({
            'display':'inline', 
            'width':'auto', 
            'margin-right':'10px'
        });
 
        // Set the widths of the 2 questions
        $('#question'+qText+'').css({'width': '35%'});
        $('#question'+qArray+'').css({'width': '58%'});
 
    });
 
</script>


Hi,
I have a question to this solution. How can I reduce the distance between the first and the second block? Betwenn Option 5 and the short-text is a too big distance. Can you show me the part in tpartners source code to reduce this distance.
Thank you !!!
