Dropdown in Multiple short text

Is it possible with javascript to change one of the short text fields in a Multiple short text into a standard dropdown list?

I managed with a lot of help to make a preselect dropdown, so I guess it is possible to make a standard dropdown also?

Have a look at the Autocomplete workaround - docs.limesurvey.org/Workarounds%3A+Manip...y#and_later_versions

Thats an autocomplete, which I use elsewhere. What I am looking for now is a normal dropdown box.

If you for example accidentally make the wrong choice in the autocomplete above, the list will not open again until you remove the text which is there.

Okay, to do that you will need to use JavaScript to:
- Define the select element (dropdown)
- Hide the text input
- Insert the select elements
- Initially select an option if the question has already been answered
- Insert selected values into the hidden text input when the dropdown is changed

Add the following script to the source of the your question.

Replace "QQ" with the question ID and "NN" with the row number of the text input you would like to replace.

Modify the HTML for the dropdown as required.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		var qID = QQ;
		var inputNum = NN;
 
		// Define the select element (dropdown)
		var select1 = '<select id="select1"> \
							<option value="">-- Please Choose --</option> \
							<option value="Apples">Apples</option> \
							<option value="Oranges">Oranges</option> \
							<option value="Pears">Pears</option> \
							<option value="Bananas">Bananas</option> \
						</select>';
 
		// Hide the text input
		$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').hide().parent().hide();
 
		// Insert the select elements
		$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+')').append(select1);
 
		// Initially select an option if the question has already been answered
		if($('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').val()) {
			$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') select').val($('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').val())
		}
 
		// Listener on the dropdowns - insert selected values into hidden text input
		$('#question'+qID+' select').change(function() {
			$(this).siblings('span').children('input.text').val($(this).val());
		});
 
		// Some styles
		$('#question'+qID+' select').css({
			'margin':'0.3em 0 0 1em'
		});
	});
 
</script>

Would it be possible to replace more text elements with dropdowns ?

Yes, simply repeat the script with different question IDs or row numbers.

Since 1.91 (or before) you can use :
var qid={QID}

Sure, you can use this with IDs of array text inputs as selectors.

To use an example similar to your other post about time inputs, this code will insert the dropdowns in the first column of the array:
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Text inputs to be replaced by dropdowns
		var dropdownAnswers = $('#answer97841X5X16SQ001_SQ001, #answer97841X5X16SQ002_SQ001, #answer97841X5X16SQ003_SQ001');
 
		// Define the select element (dropdown)
		var select1 = '<select class="select1 insertedSelect"> \
							<option value="">-- Please Choose --</option> \
							<option value="Apples">Apples</option> \
							<option value="Oranges">Oranges</option> \
							<option value="Pears">Pears</option> \
							<option value="Bananas">Bananas</option> \
						</select>';
 
		// Hide the text inputs
		$(dropdownAnswers).hide();
 
		// Insert the select elements
		$(dropdownAnswers).parents('td').append(select1);
 
		// Initially select an option if the question has already been answered
		$('.insertedSelect').each(function(i) {
			if($(this).parent().find('input[type="text"]').val()) {
				$(this).val($(this).parent().find('input[type="text"]').val())
			}
		});
 
		// Listener on the dropdowns - insert selected values into hidden text inputs
		$('.insertedSelect').change(function() {
			$(this).parent().find('input[type="text"]').val($(this).val());
		});
	});
</script>

Oops, found a bug, use this instead:
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Text inputs to be replaced by dropdowns
		var dropdownAnswers = $('#answer97841X5X16SQ001_SQ001, #answer97841X5X16SQ002_SQ001, #answer97841X5X16SQ003_SQ001');
 
		// Define the select element (dropdown)
		var select1 = '<select class="select1 insertedSelect"> \
							<option value="">-- Please Choose --</option> \
							<option value="Apples">Apples</option> \
							<option value="Oranges">Oranges</option> \
							<option value="Pears">Pears</option> \
							<option value="Bananas">Bananas</option> \
						</select>';
 
		// Hide the text inputs
		$(dropdownAnswers).hide();
 
		// Insert the select elements
		$(dropdownAnswers).closest('td').append(select1);
 
		// Initially select an option if the question has already been answered
		$('.insertedSelect').each(function(i) {
			if($(this).parent().find('input[type="text"]').val()) {
				$(this).val($(this).parent().find('input[type="text"]').val())
			}
		});
 
		// Listener on the dropdowns - insert selected values into hidden text inputs
		$('.insertedSelect').change(function() {
			$(this).parent().find('input[type="text"]').val($(this).val());
		});
	});
</script>

Hi,
I created a multiple short text question and want the first row to display as a dropdown. I'm sure this is what I need. I copied this script and modified it using my QID

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

$(document).ready(function() {

var qID = 9334;
var inputNum = 1;

// Define the select element (dropdown)
var select1 = '<select id="select1"> \
<option value="">-- Please Choose --</option> \
<option value="Mrs.">Mrs.</option> \
<option value="Mr.">Mr.</option> \
<option value="Doctor">Doctor</option> \
<option value="Miss">Miss</option> \
<option value="Other">Other</option> \

</select>';

// Hide the text input
$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').hide().parent().hide();

// Insert the select elements
$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+')').append(select1);

// Initially select an option if the question has already been answered
if($('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').val()) {
$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') select').val($('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').val())
}

// Listener on the dropdowns - insert selected values into hidden text input
$('#question'+qID+' select').change(function() {
$(this).siblings('span').children('input.text').val($(this).val());
});

// Some styles
$('#question'+qID+' select').css({
'margin':'0.3em 0 0 1em'
});
});

</script>

However the first row is still empty...no dropdown anywhere. I'm using LS Version 2.00+ Build 130423

You have an extra line in the dropdown definition that may be causing an error. Try this:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		var qID = 9334;
		var inputNum = 1;
 
		// Define the select element (dropdown)
		var select1 = '<select id="select1"> \
							<option value="">-- Please Choose --</option> \
							<option value="Mrs.">Mrs.</option> \
							<option value="Mr.">Mr.</option> \
							<option value="Doctor">Doctor</option> \
							<option value="Miss">Miss</option> \
							<option value="Other">Other</option> \
						</select>';
 
		// Hide the text input
		$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').hide().parent().hide();
 
		// Insert the select elements
		$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+')').append(select1);
 
		// Initially select an option if the question has already been answered
		if($('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').val()) {
			$('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') select').val($('#question'+qID+' li:eq('+(inputNum-1)+') input.text').val());
		}
 
		// Listener on the dropdowns - insert selected values into hidden text input
		$('#question'+qID+' select').change(function() {
			$(this).siblings('span').children('input.text').val($(this).val());
		});
 
		// Some styles
		$('#question'+qID+' select').css({
			'margin':'0.3em 0 0 1em'
		});
	});
</script>
