Hi,

New install where I have an issue with conditional branching.

If I have a simple radio button question such as no/yes then the branching works OK, but if I have radio button question with a child question then the branching is ignored. An example is a parent with yes/no and a child suppressed question with a text box that if the answer is no provide more information, in this case the branching for the parent is ignored and the survey moves on to the next question.

I guess I am just missing something in the logic that I cannot figure out, any advice appreciated.

Regards

Alan

Hi Alan,
With BF Survey version 2.0.0, so far I have only implemented the show/hide question functionality for radio and checkbox question types. It's high on my todo list to implement for other question types such as text.

Hi Tim,

Thank you for the reply.

A couple of questions:

1, To get the conditional working, I guess I have to add the 'more info' text box as a different question, is that correct?

2, What sort of timescale do you estimate on this todo - just need a best guess so I can decide what to do with the current survey.

Regards

Alan

Hi Alan,
1. As a work around, you could potentially add some custom javascript to the category (at the bottom) that shows/hides the text box based on a previous question.

2. I'm traveling to J and Beyond conference in Germany this week from Sydney, and this is one of the items on my todo list while I travel.

regards
