boolean A boolean value set to true or false.


If true (default), the mouse cursor becomes visible and subjects may respond by clicking one of the buttons corresponding to a point on the scale.

If false, subjects must respond using the keyboard. Points on the scale may be selected by pressing the key with its corresponding number (on the keyboard or number pad). Alternatively, use the arrow keys, backspace, space bar, and tab key to change the currently selected point. The current selection is committed by pressing the ENTER key.
