Hi,

My script displays 12 checkboxes underneath 12 pictures, where participants are asked to select the correct pictures by checking the box below the picture. I have positioned it so that there are 3 rows and 4 columns of pictures and checkboxes. In the third column (the x value in the position attribute is 60%) the checkboxes are visible, but it's not possible to check the boxes. When I take out the second column (position x value is 40%) of checkboxes, the third column checkboxes work just fine. I have tried re-positioning the images and checkboxes and changing the image sizes, but the issue still persists and is consistent across different monitor sizes. If I move the checkboxes in the third column down by 2% on the y axis then they work - but then these checkboxes are out of alignment with the other columns. It's the same code I used on Inquisit 4 a few years ago and the problem didn't occur using Inquisit 4. I have pasted my code below.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rachel

This code isn't really useful without the image files it needs to run. Provide those, please.

I have positioned it so that there are 3 rows and 4 columns of pictures and checkboxes. In the third column (the x value in the position attribute is 60%) the checkboxes are visible, but it's not possible to check the boxes. When I take out the second column (position x value is 40%) of checkboxes, the third column checkboxes work just fine.

If I move the checkboxes in the third column down by 2% on the y axis then they work - but then these checkboxes are out of alignment with the other columns. It's the same code I used on Inquisit 4 a few years ago and the problem didn't occur using Inquisit 4. I have pasted my code below.

Thank you for providing the files. Under Inquisit 6, the order in which the questions are drawn on the screen matters.

/ questions = [1=V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, V6, F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6]

The issue comes down to the F1, F3 and F5 checkboxes (2nd column at x=40%) effectively being drawn on top of V2, V4 and V6 (3rd column at x=60%), because the have indefinite size. Thereby they make it impossible to actually reach the V2, V4 and V6 checkboxes.

Two ways to solve this:

(1) Change the order in which questions are drawn:

Hi,

My script displays 12 checkboxes underneath 12 pictures, where participants are asked to select the correct pictures by checking the box below the picture. I have positioned it so that there are 3 rows and 4 columns of pictures and checkboxes. In the third column (the x value in the position attribute is 60%) the checkboxes are visible, but it's not possible to check the boxes. When I take out the second column (position x value is 40%) of checkboxes, the third column checkboxes work just fine. I have tried re-positioning the images and checkboxes and changing the image sizes, but the issue still persists and is consistent across different monitor sizes. If I move the checkboxes in the third column down by 2% on the y axis then they work - but then these checkboxes are out of alignment with the other columns. It's the same code I used on Inquisit 4 a few years ago and the problem didn't occur using Inquisit 4. I have pasted my code below.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rachel

This code isn't really useful without the image files it needs to run. Provide those, please.

Hi Dave,

Sorry about that - the image files are attached

Thanks
Rachel

Ah that makes sense. It works perfectly now. Thank you Dave.
