Question referencing

Applies to Infiniti v8.3 or later
 

Infiniti introduces a new ‘Question Referencing’ default value option, for the answers within a multiple answers multiple choice question. This option is an addition to the existing ‘Selected’ and ‘Not Selected’ options. The ‘Question Referencing’ option evaluates the referenced question (to true or false), to determine the value (either Selected or Not Selected) of an answer within a multiple answers multiple choice question.

The user’s input to the referenced question is evaluated as per the table given under:

#

User Input

Evaluation

Output

1.

  • · Numbers greater than or equal to 1
  • · ‘YES’, ‘TRUE’, ‘Y’, ‘T’, ‘yes’, ‘true’, ‘y’, ‘t’.

True

Referenced answer is selected

2.

A null value or any input other than that stated above.

False

Referenced answer is not selected.

 

The following instructions give a step-by-step guidance on using ‘Question Referencing’ within a project and demonstrate how this option differs from the previous ‘Selected’ and ‘Not Selected’ options.

 

1. Create a new project.
 
2. Insert two text field questions onto the default ‘Page 1’ and rename them as given below.
Note that the purpose of using descriptive text to name the different question types is to ease the process of understanding.
 

 
3. Add another page to the project.
 
4. Insert a ‘multiple choice’ question onto Page 2 and add three more answers to it. Rename the page, question and answers as given below.
 

 
5. Set the multiple choice question’s ‘Selection Type’ property to ‘Multiple Answers’.
 

 
 
6. For the ‘Selected’ answer (i.e. Answer 1), set the default value property to ‘Selected’.

 
7. For the ‘Not Selected’ answer (i.e. Answer 2), set the default value property to ‘Not Selected’.
 

 
8. For the ‘Question Reference (True on evaluation)’ answer (i.e. Answer 3), set the default value property to ‘(Question Reference)’ and select the Default Question as under.

 
9. For the ‘Question Reference (False on evaluation)’ answer (i.e. Answer 4), set the default value property to ‘(Question Reference)’ and select the Default Question as under.
 

 
10. Save the project and produce it.
 
11. In produce, follow the question text to enter values in the textboxes. Also, refer to the table at the beginning of the article, for guidance on the values that evaluate to true/false.
 

 
12. Click on the ‘Next’ button to navigate to Page 2.
 

 
Notice that the multiple choice answers are selected/ not selected on the basis of default values. The default values for the last two answers come from the evaluation of the values entered by the user on the previous page.
