Piping 'Other' option/category from multiple choice using array filter

Hi All,

Just wondering if it is possible pipe the 'Other' category from a multiple choice into an array using the arry filter. Ideally I would like to pipe the specified text, but even the broad category of 'Other' would suffice.

I am using LimeService.

Thanks.
Glen

To my knowledge that was something that wasn't implemented at the 1.91 branch yet.

Limesurvey 1.92 (RC4 was just released) uses the Expression Manager for this and I saw a working example at the forums which showed how to pipe the "other" text.

There is a working example on the 1.92 Demo site here .

You can login as admin and show its logic file to see how the piping works.

Looks great. Are there plans to upgrade LimeService (v1.91+) to 1.92 in the near future?
Cheers.

Thanks a lot! It solved my problem.

Experimenting with javascript and the jsName attribute I have got "<span id='LEMtailor_Q_21_30'>java87887X14X211</span>" instead of 'java87887X14X211'. Should I report it in Bugtracker or I made a mistake?
Cheers

Limesurvey version 1.92 will be available at LimeService once it is fully tested and runs stable. This might take some more weeks.

No, that isn't a bug. That code is how EM supports dynamic substitution on the same page. Perhaps you were testing the Demo listed below, selected the Other option, and saw the message asking why you liked {Q1_other} best. The reason it didn't show the fully substituted value is that EM would have had to do recursive substitution within a page, which it can't do. However, if does do recursive substitution between pages, so if you want to use the Other value on a different page, you will see the entered value for Other was you would expect.

Just upgraded to 1.92 and trying to solve this piping problem. I now have the issue that 'Other-specify' is always piped to subsequent array question and it doesn' seem to be a "checkable/selectable" item in the multi-choice question.

I am but a simple man. To me Java is an island in Indonesia..... Therfore if anyone can help me pipe the 'Other-specify' text into the following question (when it is selected!) I would be most appreciative. I have attached a screen capture of the relevant questions.

Many thanks.

You can use an answer code "other" for the question 2 "Other" option and an expression to pipe in the value as in the illustration below (where my Q1 code is multiOpt_p1_1). This will make both the filter and the piping work.


So the result is:


Here's a working example:
