There is a script in the Developer Resources section of the SurveyGizmo documentation that “hides” the Other write-in box until that option is selected – http://script.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/hide-other
This script works great for radio button type questions. It does not work as well in checkbox-type questions. In these questions the write-in box will appear when the option is selected, but it will disappear if the respondent selects another option. The Other selection has to be the last selection, or the write-in box will disappear.
Allowing answers to disappear for no apparent reason violates several usability rules, so we are unable to use the script of the survey includes checkbox type questions with Other-Write-in options.
Does anyone know if this script can be fixed? Thanks.
The first part hides the other box by default when the page loads. The second part shows it after the specific associated checkbox is clicked. The part I haven’t worked out is once it is shown, if the respondent then un-selects the associated checkbox, the other box does not hide again…
I know you posted this a while ago, but I thought I would share this in case it helps!
