Hello. I prepared a list of 16 radiobutton items on one page. I wonder if I can somehow make the number of each item (1-16) appears in the output file. (See attached.)

Thanks!

Ali

PS. I made up the format of this file. If you spot anything wrong in it, please let me know.

No, you can't*. However, for data analysis purposes it's just a matter of a simple "recode" operation on the trialcode column.

* Save for actually *naming* your <radiobuttons> elements "1" to "16" (which I would not recommend in general). I.e.,

<surveypage explicitsem1>
/ stimulusframes = [1=arabs; 2=english]
/ questions = [1=hardworking_anchor; 2=1; 3=lazy_anchor;
    4=know_anchor; 5=2; 6=ignorant_anchor; ...]
[...]
</surveypage>

[...]

<radiobuttons 1>
/ caption = ""
/ options = ("", "", "", "", "", "", "")
/ optionvalues = ("3", "2", "1", "0", "-1", "-2", "-3")
/ fontstyle = ("Verdana", -20, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
/ orientation = horizontal
/ size = (10%, 90%)
/ position = (40, 10)
/ txcolor = (0, 255, 0)
</radiobuttons>

[...]

<radiobuttons 2>
/ caption = ""
/ options = ("", "", "", "", "", "", "")
/ optionvalues = ("3", "2", "1", "0", "-1", "-2", "-3")
/ fontstyle = ("Verdana", -20, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
/ orientation = horizontal
/ size = (10%, 90%)
/ position = (40, 15)
/ txcolor = (0, 255, 0)
</radiobuttons>

Thanks Dave, that's really clever. I'll think about which way to follow. 

By the way, I noticed that because the response is required, when I click Next before answering all items the two questions disappear. This might confuse some respondents (which group is which). Is there a way to prevent questions from disappearing?  

Best, 

Ali

You would have to use <caption> elements for the questions, not <text> elements.

Thanks again Dave. 

I noticed a similar problem that occurs when a required answer is not supplied. The neighboring text disappears. (See attached p.2). 

Thanks again.

Yes. Same thing. Here you can also try setting

<survey demographics>
/ onblockbegin= [survey.demographics.rightmargin=50%]
/ pages = [1=demographics1; 2=demographics2; 3=demographics3]
/ showpagenumbers = false
/ showbackbutton = false
/ nextlabel = "Next"
/ finishlabel = "Finish"
/ nextbuttonposition = (95%, 90%)
</survey>

Thanks Dave, this is really great! 

One more thing: Is it possible to underline a single word in a text, caption... etc. I'm aware that I can underline the whole thing, but what about just one word?

No, it's not possible to format a single word differently than the rest in a given <text>, <caption>, etc.
