Hi,

In the description of the remote control API it mentions that with the last parameter I can get an array with extended attributes:

"aAttributes(bool|array) An array of extended attributes that can be requested, besides the default ones (default value to false)"

I can't get this to work, what parameter do I use in the Remote Control call and how do I access the results?

Any help greatly appreciated,
Auke

Is there anybody that can help with this?

I did find a work around, using the get_participant_properties. But it is very slow, I have to loop through the list of participants, each time making a RPC call.

This is also my question. Iterating in every single token with get_participant_properties is not a solution...
nobody here can explain a little more?

at the end i got it,after a week of tries.
this string worked for me:

{\"method\": \"list_participants\", \"params\": {\"sSessionKey \": <sessionKey>, \"iSurveyID \": \"<iSurveyID>\",\"iStart\": \"0\", \"iLimit\": \"1000\", \"bUnused  \":\"false\", \"aAttributes \": [\"attribute_1\",\"attribute_2\"]}, \"id\": <magicNumber>}"

where you have to edit <sessionKey>,<iSurveyID>,<magicNumber> with your own values.

Before adding/removing parameters from this string, try it as it is, because you can have troubles, for example, if you set iLimit but not iStart.
