I’m looking for a way to dynamically build a textbox list question based on a previous answer. The first question will ask a respondent how many times they have experienced something. The subsequent textbox list will provide a list of blank text boxes based on that number.
How many times have you experienced “X”? _____
Please provide a brief description of each incident:
Is there a way to do this either with our without a custom script?
My team has had to build similar questions. We found that it was easier to use a series of textbox questions within a CUSTOM GROUP question instead of the TEXTBOX LIST. You can apply logic to each question within the CUSTOM GROUP, so the first textbox would appear if the response to the “How many….” questions was less than or equal to 1. The next textbox would appear if the response was less than or equal to 2, and so on.
You will have to make sure that your “How many…” question will yield consistent responses that can be used to trigger logic conditions. We used a textbox question with the AUTOCOMPLETE function enabled to ensure consistent responses.
That works pretty well. We’ll have to determine what we think is the high end number they will fill in will be so that they get enough textboxes to fill in. So not perfect but I think we can make it work.
Thanks for the alternative!
