Hello,

In my array I would like to maximise and minimise 3 selected rows in total and 1 column per row. See the figure. Can this be done in LimeService ?
I am an unexperienced user and not a programmer.

Thanks.
Peter

You can use an array question with "Maximum answers" set to 3 - docs.limesurvey.org/Advanced+question+se...meSurvey#max_answers

Thank you Tony,
Now I set the question to a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 3 and so far it works.
The problem that comes up now is that once you have made a choice and want to undo it, its not going. So in that case it counts for the maximum of three.

If this can be made working I have 2 extra questions:
1 is it possible to maximise and minimise that in each row 1 answer is choosen ?
2 The min and max item is as far is a understand only available in version 1.92. I am using LimeService which has version 1.91 Maybe for an other topic ?
Thanks,
Peter

This is true with any radio question. If you want the ability to uncheck, you will need to use an array-numbers question with the checkbox layout.
is it possible to maximise and minimise that in each row 1 answer is choosen ?
A radio array only allows one answer per row. If you use the checkbox option mentioned above, you will need to use JavaScript to limit one answer per row.
I am using Limeservice which has version 1.91
Then you will need to use JavaScript.

Attach a small sample survey with the array-numbers/checkbox question question and I'll give a little script to:
1) Limit to one answer per row
2) Limit to 3 rows answered
3) Require that 3 rows are answerd

Good morning Tony,
My apologies for my non reaction on your offer. I was abroad for a long time. Thanks for your reaction and offer. I have to study now all the changes and new possibilities of Limesurvey. It looks good so far.
Best regards, Peter

And you should really think about a upgrade. 1.91 is quite old and since then LS has advanced quite a bit and also a lot of bugs have been solved.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Hello Holch, thanks for your advice. I was not here for a long time. Now I am using the LimeService and building seriously my first survey.
Have a nice day, Regards, Peter
