slider increments

By victoriaestrada - 9/24/2015


This is just a simple question that I cannot seem to find the answer to in any of the help documents/forums.

I have survey items using sliders; however, I want the slider position to be in between two numbers (e.g., scale from 1 to 6, and slider start position between 3 and 4... or 3.5). I tried to change the /increment = .5 and /defaultresponse = .5, but this does not seem to work. Can increments in the slider be non-whole numbers? If so, how do I do this?

Also, I want their responses to only be whole numbers. So, I hope to only start the slider between 3 and 4, but I only want them to be able to report a whole number between 1 and 6. Is this also possible, given that my starting point would be at 3.5?

Thanks in advance!

Example item:
<slider SDO9>
/ caption = "It would be good if groups could be equal."
/ labels = ("1~rVery~rnegative", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6~rVery~rpositive")
/ slidersize = (60%, 10%)
/ range = (1, 9)
/ showtooltips = false
/ required = true
