I'm new to limesurvey and I'm in the middle of designing my first survey. I'm generally fairly good with computers and I've used javascript before, but I'm struggling right now.

I need to create a question that has two inline dropdown lists, so it's like a "fill in the blanks" sentence with specific answers. I've posted the layout I want below. The labels for each dropdown should be identical

question text [dropdown] question text [dropdown] question text.


I've tried fiddling around with the source code and hunting through the workarounds, but I'm coming up empty right now. Any suggestions?

Its just an idea,

Add a Text display question with some <span id="foranswerSXGXQ"></span>.

Add the 2 question with the select box.

The select box are identified with SGQA S = survey, G = group, Q = Question.

For the example : survey 1 , group 1, question 1 and 2 (and add the 2 span according to the id)

Hide the question block with some css.
#questionQ1, #questionQ2 {position:absolute;top:-9999em;left:-9999em}

And the javascript
$('select#answer1X1X1').appendTo('#foranswer1X1X1');
$('select#answer1X1X2').appendTo('#foranswer1X1X2');
