Return entered text as stimulus, but only when something was actually entered

Hi Everybody, 



Trying to build the following set up: 


Participants fill in up to 4 arguments regarding a certain topic. Then, they are again presented with these all of theses arguments on screenat once. Then, each argument seperately appears together with a likert scale in order to rate each argument seperately.  So far, I got this to work. However, the text boxes are not obligatory, in other words, they can be left blank. In my current set up, this will lead to the appearance of a likert scale with no stimulus. Is there some way in which In quisit can skip the trials in which the item is empty? Does anybody have an idea on this?



Below is my rough code so far.

<textbox pos1>


/ textboxsize = (20,5)

Is there some way in which In quisit can skip the trials in which the item is empty?


How about the /skip attribute? E.g.


<likert likertpos1>
/ skip = [item.pos1.itemcount==0]
/ anchors=[1="helemaal niet positief"; 9="heel positief"]
/ anchorwidth = 100
/ numpoints = 9
/ position = (50, 70)
/ mouse = true
/ stimulusframes=[1= pos1]
/ fontstyle = ("Verdana", 1.61%, true, false, false, false, 5, 0)
</likert>


or something like that...

Hi Dave, 



Thanks - was just fiddling with that, but it does not seem to work... Will keep at it a bit more.

Alternatively try


/ skip = [item.pos1.item.1==""]


etc.
