Using sliders in LimeSurvey???

8 years 1 month ago #80401 by Enric
Hi,
I'm newbie at LimeSurvey and I've read in this forum that you can use a slider (in the style of this: badassdatascience.com/badassdatascience/...11/slider_image2.png ) as the Question Type. Nevertheless, I can't seem to find this option when I use the dropdown list. I'm using v1.92+.

Can a slider be used out-of-the-box or is it only accessible thru mingling with the source code?

Thanks

Sliders can be used with the multiple numeric input question type - docs.limesurvey.org/Question+type+-+Mult...tions+for+LimeSurvey

Woow!... that's quick!.. Thanks for such a quick response.

I chose the Multiple Numeric type but initially I was being requested to input 'subquestions'. But I discovered later on that under the Advanced Settings beneath the question there's then an option to activate the slider. Many thanks tpartner!.

But how did you actually do it? I need exactly the same "layout" as yours but it doesn't work. I guess that I got something wrong with the "Subquestion text¦Left slider label¦Right slider label" thing.

Did you set a "Slider left/right text separator" - manual.limesurvey.org/Question_type_-_Mu...8slider_separator.29 ?

In fact, I don't understand these instructions. Could you give me a concrete example how to fill in this box? Maybe with the male/female example from above?

Place a "pipe" character in the Slider left/right text separator field:


In the sub-question fields, separate your sub-question text, left text and right text with that character:

Whenever I see the way that feature was implemented I ask myself if we can't just have a "Show left/right scale details" and if set we add two additional field on sub-question level to enter these details.
The current solution is pretty difficult to use. Maybe worth filing a feature request for LS 3...

I am having troubles with the slider labels. I followed the instruction in the manual and the labels are showing on each side of the slider, but they will also show up ugly on the subquestion title like this:

xxx | slider label 1 | slider label 2

I can't find a way to hide the title and just keep the slider labels. Can someone help me?

Thank you!

Thanks for the reply. I tried exactly this, but it does still show up as the title.
These are my slider labels:
|komme ich zu nichts|kann ich Dinge tun, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe

Hi,

with these settings - as Tony said already


I see the following slider


Without seeing anything of your settings it is difficult to say more.

Or did you enter your labels here?

Here you only define the character that separates subquestion, left label, right label.
E.g. If your label contains this pipe-symbol "|" by chance, you may select a different character.

Or did you change this character for some reason?

It is difficult to diagnose the problem with virtually no details. Can you provide your LimeSurvey version and attach an export (.lss file) of a small sample survey containing only that question.
