“require other” in api call


I’m working on a vba macro that creates questions via API calls.
I’ve worked up a way that creates the requireother property in the http request when I create the option for the question:
“&properties[requireother]=TRUE” which sets the special setting to ‘requireother’.

however, i don’t actually see the text box until I manually look the question option page via the web browser and press save.

it’s as if the system doesn’t recogince the property.
did this happen to anyone else? is there a proper way to resolve the situation?

in the attached picture
1. after using the api call.
2. notice that the option is set to require other.
3. after entreing and exising the option, the textbox appears.

    You only demonstrated that you set properties[requireother]=TRUE

    Did you also set properties[other]=TRUE ?
