For a survey, I need to complete a few questions based on info in the token table. The idea is to load info from an external database to the token table, than use limesurvey to check if these data are correct.

Based on info here,I got it to work for text input questions, for example below:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$(document).ready(function() {

if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}' == '1') {
document.getElementById("answer74931X156X880").value = '{TOKEN:FIRSTNAME}' }
});
</script>


But I failed in both multiple choice and single choice questions.

I tried like this:

if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}' == '1') {
document.getElementById("answer74931X156X885").value = 'A1' }

and like this

if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}' == '1') {
document.getElementById("answer74931X156X884A1").value = Y }

and even

if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}' == '1') {
document.getElementById("input#answer74931X156X884A1").attr('checked', true)}

Hello,

You don't have to use document.getElementById with jquery, and here you use jquery and pure javascript, i don't think it can work like that.

Try:
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}' == '1') {
("input#answer74931X156X884A1").attr('checked', true);
}

I tried both
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$(document).ready(function() {
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}' == '1') {
("input#answer74931X156X884A1").attr('checked', true);
}
});
</script>
and also just to check
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$(document).ready(function() {
("input#answer74931X156X884A1").attr('checked', true);
});
</script>

and neither of them worked.

Joost, to share your knowledge with other users, ca you write a short tutorial how to prefill different question types like text, single choice, multiple choice, ...?

That would be great!

I'm still working out some details, but I'll write it out soon. I'm making an xls to make programming easier, should I include that file somehow too?

Still having some trouble. I got everything to work fine for both single and multiple answers. But I have one multi answer question with over 60 answer options. I have it encoded in 12 attributes, each of which can contain one of the 60 answer options.
For example for person Y, attribute_3 may contain 21, which implies answer option X21 on question 884.
The code below does the trick in simple test, though it's not elegant. But when I encode all the attribute fields for all the answer options, Limesurvey freaks and messes with the code. Which is totally rational, given the redundancy of all that code.
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_3}' == '21') {$("input#answer74931X156X884X21").attr('checked', true);}
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_3}' == '22') {$("input#answer74931X156X884X22").attr('checked', true);}
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_3}' == '23') {$("input#answer74931X156X884X23").attr('checked', true);}
 
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_4}' == '21') {$("input#answer74931X156X884X21").attr('checked', true);}
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_4}' == '22') {$("input#answer74931X156X884X22").attr('checked', true);}
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_4}' == '23') {$("input#answer74931X156X884X23").attr('checked', true);}


I guess it would be better to do it something like this:
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_3}' == '21' OR '{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_4}' == '21' OF '{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_5}' == '21' OR ...) {$("input#answer74931X156X884X21").attr('checked', true);}

But I can't find the proper JQUERY syntax for OR statements. Any hints?

It's not jquery, but javascript here ;)

OR = ||
if('{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_3}' == '21' || '{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_4}' == '21' || '{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_5}' == '21' ) {
$("input#answer74931X156X884X21").attr('checked', true);
}
