Hi. I'm doing some modularization of surveys over here. Key to that is the ability to not custom code the javascript as much as possible - rather, I would prefer to have something more generic that can be applied to different surveys regardless of the SGQA.

To whit... is there a shortcut? More specifically, I'm calling an ajax function on the final screen (embedded in the end message, actually).

I want to reference 3 fields that were populated earlier in the survey. While I could reference via SGQA, the survey, groups, questions, etc... are being generated dynamically so I'd prefer not to track S / G / Q / A variables for each survey if I can help it. I'd really like to be able to do something along the lines of $('#foo').val() with #foo being the question 'code' used during question creation.

Is this possible?

Thanks.

You can use Expression Manager variables in the end message.

So, assuming the question code is foo, if you want to pipe in the answer code, something like this should work:
{foo.value}

Or, if you want to pipe in the answer label:
{foo.shown}

Cheers,

Sweet. Thanks. That's perfect. I haven't done anything with expressions (they look daunting). Time to tackle it.

I appreciate your assistance.

For the next person who finds this useful - as a hint, you may need to escape using quotes. For example, if there's a question with code "foo", the following displays the value in the console:
<script>
console.log("{foo.value}");
</script>
My point being that the above would break without the double-quotes encapsulating the expression var.

Hope this helps someone!
