Hi!
I have a big problem with my survey.
I'm working with LimeSurvey version 2.54.1.

I need to hide some columns of my array (text or numerical array).
I've found the solution in github.com/SondagesPro/LS-hideEmptyColumn . I've followed the instructions "Via ZIP dowload" but it still doesn't work.
I'm not able to find the solution.
Someone can help me?
Thank you very much!

P.S. in attachment a picture of my problem.

Hi, Alessandra,
okay, we see the picture, but...
What is the condition whether some columns are shown or not?

Please attach a sample survey with just these questions.

And: Is the plugin installed and activated?


Attached an example.

This is an old problem in LimeSurvey and very annoying!
There are a lot of bug reports for this meanwhile. The solution from DenisChenu is fine but only working with some versions of LS (i.e. not with the latest one)

Best regards/Beste Grüße,

The confusing thing is that there is the relevance field in the x-axis, which doesn't work.

To be honest, you always can work around with "out of the box" features.
Instead of the array just use multiple questions with multiple numerical input or multiple texts.

Hi Joffm,
thank you very much for your helpful answer.
In attachment the example requested.

Only one question: How can I activate the plugin?
I have followed the instructions "Via ZIP dowload", that is:
1. Download https: //extensions.sondages.pro/IMG/auto/hideEmptyColumn.zip
2. Extract : unzip hideEmptyColumn.zip
3. Move the directory to plugins/ directory inside LimeSurvey

Please, let me know how can I install and activate the plugin, because it is not specify in the DenisChenu solution.
Thank you very much,
Alessandra

There is no functionality in many array questions when it comes to relevance.

This is the same plugin I used. :(

No, unfortunately now I can't update. Do you think this problem could be related to the LimeSurvey version?

But, not to waste too much time on this.

You very probably can change the display to this:


Here are no problems to display or hide certain "examples" by relevance equations.

Yes, I know. I have no problem to hide "row" of an array (I have done in another question of the questionnaire). Unfortunately I can't change column in row (as you suggested). :(
Thank you :)

Why not?
There is no problem to have one question for each row of your array.

But.
Until now you did not tell us anything about the structure of your survey.
We only got this first example screenshot.

So, please, provide a sample survey with these questions.
