How to hide previous answer from next select list answers

5 years 8 months ago #62187 by combo
Hello. I have 3 questions with same answers on select list.
My problem is i do not wish that it is possible to select all three questions with same answers. They all must be different (you cannot select answer "A" for second question, if you selected "A" already for first question etc).
Any help would be appreciated. It is not necessary to hide previously answered question, aim is that it is not possible to select same answers from select list.

Thank you.

You can use Question type : Ranking

It's the easyest way.

If you really want someting different : use some javascript to hide some option:

Thank you
I found the code
var previousQuestionAnswer = "{INSERTANS:1000X1X1}";
var currentQuestionID = "#answer1000X1X1"
$(document).ready(function() {  		
	// See if the answer for the previous question matches an answer in the current question
	// (other than 'No Answer')
	// If so, disable it.
	if (previousQuestionAnswer!='No Answer') {
		$(currentQuestionID).children().each(function(index, Element)
			if ($(this).attr('text') == previousQuestionAnswer)  
				{ $(this).attr('disabled', true);}
}); // End of JQuery ready function

I dont know anything about javascript, but do I need to rename those "{INSERTANS:1000X1X1}" and "#answer1000X1X1" to something else. I cant figure what should I type there instead of these. Lets say my answer code is "A1", but renaming these to "{INSERTANS:A1}" and "#answerA1" wont work.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you for finding some time for dumbuser lol.
