Hi everyone,

thanks for the great software and forum! I have a question regarding an issue I am currently facing while working on a survey and hope for some support here if possible.

I would need something like in the picture I attached: A radio list with two items (yes and no / none) and if the first one (yes) is selected, the user has the option to enter text (specifically: numbers only) in 2 or 3 inputs.

I know that I could do it with two seperate questions, but I really need it in one question. As there is more than 1 user input, the "other" option is not enough.

Is there any Javascript hack or idea how to solve this? Maybe creating a 2-option radio list and a separate multiple text input question that is then "hacked" into the first radio element somehow?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions ;-)

Hi, horsti,

so you would like to have this kind of display.
Of course, you do not need it, because you know that there is a good looking alternative.

This way you can have as many text inputs as you like.
And you can improve the look by a bit more css.

Well, I can offer something that looks like your chart.








Just use a question of type "mulitple with comments", enter this script
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Identify this question
		var qID = {QID}; 
 
		// The sub-question codes to have no text input
		var sqCodes = [1,5]; 
 
		// Loop through those sq codes and remove their text inputs
		$(sqCodes).each(function(i, code) {
			$('#question'+qID+' input[type="text"][id$="X'+qID+code+'comment"]').remove();
		});
 
	});
</script>

and use relevance equarions to show the text inputs:
Like:
(Q1_SQ001=="Y")
(Q1_SQ001=="Y") and (!is_empty(Q1_SQ002comment))
...

Regards
Joffm

Hey Joffm,

thanks for the reply and indeed, that is a way I can work around towards my requirements. That helps a lot!
Sometimes you (myself in this case) don't realise the easy solutions and try to approch it from the difficult path. Your script and some css-tuning will most likely do the trick here.

Cheers and have a great day,
horsti
