I tried to write a little jquery code showing my thoughts . Please suggest how it looks.
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$('button#movesubmitbtn').on('click',function(){
var $otherRow = $('div.array-flexible-row table.subquestions-list tr:has("input:text")');
for(var i=0;i<$otherRow.length;i++){
var checkedRadio = $otherRow.eq(i).find('td:not("td.noanswer-item")').find('input:checked').length;
var boxVal = $.trim($otherRow.eq(i).find('input:text').val());
if(((checkedRadio != 0) && (boxVal == "")) || ((checkedRadio == 0) && (boxVal != ""))){
alert('Please review your answer in other specify row.');
return false;
}
break;
}
});
//clear other specify value on click of no answer
$('td.noanswer-item').on('click',function(){
$(this).parent().find('input:text').val('');
});
//uncheck no answer on keydown inside otherspecify box.
$('div.array-flexible-row table.subquestions-list input:text').on('keydown',function(){
$(this).parent().parent().find('td.noanswer-item input:radio').prop('checked',false);
});
});
</script>

Okay, using the "No Answer" survey setting simplifies things a bit and to expand a little on your line of thinking...
  1. Add a class to the "Other" row for styling and manipulation
  2. Use question-specific selectors
  3. Use keyup and change events to on the text inputs (in case someone pastes)
  4. Prevent the click event on the submit button from firing more than once if there are multiple instances of these questions
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Identify the questions
		var thisQuestion = $('#question'+{QID}+'');
		var nextQuestion = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(0)');
 
		// Hide the short-text question
		$(nextQuestion).hide();
 
		// Move the hidden text input into the array
		$('th.answertext:last', thisQuestion).append($('input[type="text"]', nextQuestion)).closest('tr').addClass('otherRow');
 
		// Some styling...
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).css({
			'width': '50%'
		});		
 
		// Handle the "Other" radios
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).on('keyup change',function(event){
			event.stopPropagation();
 
			if($.trim($(this).val()) == '') {
				$('.otherRow input:radio[value!=""]', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
				$('.otherRow input:radio[value=""]', thisQuestion).click();
			}
			else {
				$('.otherRow input:radio[value=""]', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
			}
		});	
 
		// Handle the "Other" text input
		$('.otherRow input.radio', thisQuestion).on('click',function(event){
			if($(this).attr('value') == '') {
				$('.otherRow input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).val('');
			}
		});
 
		// Validate the "Other" text input(s) on submit
		if($('#movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').attr('data-inserted-other') != 'true') { // We're only doing this once on this page
			$('#movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').attr('data-inserted-other', 'true').on('click.insertedOther', function (event) {
 
				var otherError = 0;
 
				$('.array-flexible-row .otherRow').each(function(i) {
 
					if(($('input:radio[value!=""]:checked', this).length > 0 && $('input[type="text"]', this).val() == '') || ($('input:radio[value!=""]:checked', this).length == 0 && $('input[type="text"]', this).val() != '')) {
						otherError = 1;
					}
				});
 
				if(otherError == 1) {
					alert('Please review your answer in the "Other" row(s).');
					return false;
				}
			});
		}
	});
</script>

Hi tpartner,

It would great if we can do one more enhancement in this code.

This code works perfect when Array question in non-mandatory but if I make Array question mandatory from question setting then "OtherSpecify" row also forced to answer that is usually not desired. My plan is to keep Array question non-mandatory through settings and update javascript code to force all rows except other specify. Also the UI on error should also be similar default error ie append an error message "This question is mandatory. Please complete all parts." below question text and red highlight the labels of rows that are not answered.

Can you please help us ... :)

Thanks

tpartner replied the topic: Array Question with "Other" Answer
The way that I would handle that would be to...

1) Keep the mandatory setting on the question.

2) Add an "N/A" answer to the y-scale.

3) Add the following new script that will:
- Insert the "Other" input as previously
- Hide the "N/A" column
- Click the hidden "N/A" radio by default
- If text is entered in "Other", the hidden "N/A" is unchecked
- If all text is removed fromn "Other", the hidden "N/A" is checked

Now the hidden "N/A" can satisfy the mandatory requirement if nothing is entered in "Other".

Note that this script will not work on the same page as previous scripts from this thread without modification to those previous scripts.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Identify the questions
		var thisQuestion = $('#question'+{QID}+'');
		var nextQuestion = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(0)');
 
		// Hide the short-text question
		$(nextQuestion).hide();
 
		// Add a class to the "N/A" column
		$('table.subquestions-list thead tr th:last', thisQuestion).addClass('na-column');
		$('table.subquestions-list tbody tr', thisQuestion).each(function(i) {
			$('td:last', this).addClass('na-column');
		});
 
		// Hide the "N/A" column
		$('.na-column', thisQuestion).hide();
		var ansColWidth = Number($('.col-answers', thisQuestion).attr('width').replace(/%/, ''));
		var newColWidth = (100-ansColWidth)/($('col.odd, col.even', thisQuestion).length-1);
		$('col.odd, col.even', thisQuestion).attr('width', newColWidth+'%');
 
		// Move the hidden text input into the array
		$('th.answertext:last', thisQuestion).append($('input[type="text"]', nextQuestion)).closest('tr').addClass('otherRow');
 
		// Initial "N/A" radio setting
		if($('.otherRow input:radio:checked', thisQuestion).length == 0) {
			$('.otherRow .na-column input:radio', thisQuestion).trigger('click');
		}
 
		// Some styling...
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).css({
			'width': '50%'
		});		
 
		// Handle the "Other" radios
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).on('keyup change',function(event){
			event.stopPropagation();
 
			if($.trim($(this).val()) == '') {
				$('.otherRow input:radio', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
				$('.otherRow .na-column input:radio', thisQuestion).click();
			}
			else {
				$('.otherRow .na-column input:radio', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
			}
		});	
	});

Is there an elegant way to keep the others fields at the bottom when applying the randomize option?

tpartner replied the topic: Array Question with "Other" Answer
To do that, you would need to have the JS move the "Other" sub-question to the end of the array before inserting the text input.

So, for example, if your "Other" sub-question has a code of "99", something like this:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Identify the questions
		var thisQuestion = $('#question'+{QID}+'');
		var nextQuestion = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(0)');
 
		// Hide the short-text question
		$(nextQuestion).hide();
 
		// Move the "Other" row to the end (in case of randomization)
		$('table.subquestions-list', thisQuestion).append($('tr.answers-list[id$="X'+{QID}+'99"]'));
 
		// Add a class to the "N/A" column
		$('table.subquestions-list thead tr th:last', thisQuestion).addClass('na-column');
		$('table.subquestions-list tbody tr', thisQuestion).each(function(i) {
			$('td:last', this).addClass('na-column');
		});
 
		// Hide the "N/A" column
		$('.na-column', thisQuestion).hide();
		var ansColWidth = Number($('.col-answers', thisQuestion).attr('width').replace(/%/, ''));
		var newColWidth = (100-ansColWidth)/($('col.odd, col.even', thisQuestion).length-1);
		$('col.odd, col.even', thisQuestion).attr('width', newColWidth+'%');
 
		// Move the hidden text input into the array
		$('th.answertext:last', thisQuestion).append($('input[type="text"]', nextQuestion)).closest('tr').addClass('otherRow');
 
		// Initial "N/A" radio setting
		if($('.otherRow input:radio:checked', thisQuestion).length == 0) {
			$('.otherRow .na-column input:radio', thisQuestion).trigger('click');
		}
 
		// Some styling...
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).css({
			'width': '50%'
		});		
 
		// Handle the "Other" radios
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).on('keyup change',function(event){
			event.stopPropagation();
 
			if($.trim($(this).val()) == '') {
				$('.otherRow input:radio', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
				$('.otherRow .na-column input:radio', thisQuestion).click();
			}
			else {
				$('.otherRow .na-column input:radio', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
			}
		});	
	});
</script>

I got a email about your post. And the last post before was 2 weeks ago.
Perhaps an issue on mailserver level.

But thanks for your post. I forgot to say "Thank you" to tpartner.
Shame on me. Have to reduce the threads I follow at the same time.
