Hi, I'm experiencing an issue here with the following code. It seems that the SE block and the SDO block are exactly the same in terms of structure, but only the SDO block runs as intended. For the SE block, however, when I scroll down the page, only items move but the radio buttons don't move at all. And the "continue" button is not showing up. Anyone knows why? (the SDO block used to have the same issue and I have no idea how I fixed it...)

Thanks!

Code pasted here:

<defaults>

/ txbgcolor = (0, 0, 0) / screencolor = (0, 0, 0)

Hmm, no real idea since both work fine for me. However, one trick you can apply is to explicitly position a <caption> element near the location where the continue button should appear on <surveypage SE_Q>. I.e something like this:

<surveypage SE_Q>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/subcaptionfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/itemfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/questions = [1-10 = random(SE1,SE2,SE3,SE4,SE5,SE6,SE7,SE8,SE9,SE10); 11 = spacer]
/ txcolor = white
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
</surveypage>

<caption spacer>
/ caption = "  "
/ position = (10%, 170%)
</caption>

Does that make any difference for you? Also, which Inquisit version are you seeing this under (I've only tested 5.0.13.0)?

Hmm, no real idea since both work fine for me. However, one trick you can apply is to explicitly position a <caption> element near the location where the continue button should appear on <surveypage SE_Q>. I.e something like this:

<surveypage SE_Q>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/subcaptionfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/itemfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/questions = [1-10 = random(SE1,SE2,SE3,SE4,SE5,SE6,SE7,SE8,SE9,SE10); 11 = spacer]
/ txcolor = white
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
</surveypage>

<caption spacer>
/ caption = "  "
/ position = (10%, 170%)
</caption>

Does that make any difference for you? Also, which Inquisit version are you seeing this under (I've only tested 5.0.13.0)?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for you quick response! I'm using Inquisit 5.0.9.0. and adding spacer didn't make any difference for me--still can't see radiobuttons for all items (items move but radiobuttons for the first page are fixed) and can't see the "continue" button...It's so weird because the other block works perfectly...

Hi, I'm experiencing an issue here with the following code. It seems that the SE block and the SDO block are exactly the same in terms of structure, but only the SDO block runs as intended. For the SE block, however, when I scroll down the page, only items move but the radio buttons don't move at all. And the "continue" button is not showing up. Anyone knows why? (the SDO block used to have the same issue and I have no idea how I fixed it...)

Thanks!

Does that make any difference for you? Also, which Inquisit version are you seeing this under (I've only tested 5.0.13.0)?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for you quick response! I'm using Inquisit 5.0.9.0. and adding spacer didn't make any difference for me--still can't see radiobuttons for all items (items move but radiobuttons for the first page are fixed) and can't see the "continue" button...It's so weird because the other block works perfectly...

Update--
I installed the 5.0.13.0 version and the problem persisted...There's also a new issue: for 3-4 times that I opened the file using the new version, inquisit quit unexpectedly every time...

Hi Dave,

I'm using Inquisit 5.0.9.0. and adding spacer didn't make any difference for me--still can't see radiobuttons for all items (items move but radiobuttons for the first page are fixed) and can't see the "continue" button...It's so weird because the other block works perfectly...

I installed the 5.0.13.0 version and the problem persisted...There's also a new issue: for 3-4 times that I opened the file using the new version, inquisit quit unexpectedly every time...

Hmm, that is extremely strange -- I am unable to reproduce either issue. Can you attach the script (just to make sure nothing gets lost by pasting the contents into a post) and perhaps a screen shot of the non-moving / fixed radiobuttons?

Hmm, no real idea since both work fine for me. However, one trick you can apply is to explicitly position a <caption> element near the location where the continue button should appear on <surveypage SE_Q>. I.e something like this:

<surveypage SE_Q>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/subcaptionfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/itemfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/questions = [1-10 = random(SE1,SE2,SE3,SE4,SE5,SE6,SE7,SE8,SE9,SE10); 11 = spacer]
/ txcolor = white
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
</surveypage>

<caption spacer>
/ caption = "  "
/ position = (10%, 170%)
</caption>

Does that make any difference for you? Also, which Inquisit version are you seeing this under (I've only tested 5.0.13.0)?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for you quick response! I'm using Inquisit 5.0.9.0. and adding spacer didn't make any difference for me--still can't see radiobuttons for all items (items move but radiobuttons for the first page are fixed) and can't see the "continue" button...It's so weird because the other block works perfectly...

Update--
I installed the 5.0.13.0 version and the problem persisted...There's also a new issue: for 3-4 times that I opened the file using the new version, inquisit quit unexpectedly every time...

Hmm, that is extremely strange -- I am unable to reproduce either issue. Can you attach the script (just to make sure nothing gets lost by pasting the contents into a post) and perhaps a screen shot of the non-moving / fixed radiobuttons?

Here I attached the script for the problematic SE block.

Here's the screenshot (when I scroll down):

Hi, I'm experiencing an issue here with the following code. It seems that the SE block and the SDO block are exactly the same in terms of structure, but only the SDO block runs as intended. For the SE block, however, when I scroll down the page, only items move but the radio buttons don't move at all. And the "continue" button is not showing up. Anyone knows why? (the SDO block used to have the same issue and I have no idea how I fixed it...)

Thanks!

Code pasted here:

<defaults>
/ font = ("Arial", -21, 400, 0, 34)
/ txbgcolor = (0, 0, 0) / screencolor = (0, 0, 0)

Does that make any difference for you? Also, which Inquisit version are you seeing this under (I've only tested 5.0.13.0)?

Hmm, that is extremely strange -- I am unable to reproduce either issue. Can you attach the script (just to make sure nothing gets lost by pasting the contents into a post) and perhaps a screen shot of the non-moving / fixed radiobuttons?

Here I attached the script for the problematic SE block.

Here's the screenshot (when I scroll down):


Thanks -- I'm baffled, no idea what's causing this (still no luck reproducing, not with the attached script either), but will investigate. Are you seeing this across multiple different devices or just one particular one?

Hmm, no real idea since both work fine for me. However, one trick you can apply is to explicitly position a <caption> element near the location where the continue button should appear on <surveypage SE_Q>. I.e something like this:

<surveypage SE_Q>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/subcaptionfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/itemfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/questions = [1-10 = random(SE1,SE2,SE3,SE4,SE5,SE6,SE7,SE8,SE9,SE10); 11 = spacer]
/ txcolor = white
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
</surveypage>

<caption spacer>
/ caption = "  "
/ position = (10%, 170%)
</caption>

Does that make any difference for you? Also, which Inquisit version are you seeing this under (I've only tested 5.0.13.0)?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for you quick response! I'm using Inquisit 5.0.9.0. and adding spacer didn't make any difference for me--still can't see radiobuttons for all items (items move but radiobuttons for the first page are fixed) and can't see the "continue" button...It's so weird because the other block works perfectly...

Update--
I installed the 5.0.13.0 version and the problem persisted...There's also a new issue: for 3-4 times that I opened the file using the new version, inquisit quit unexpectedly every time...

Hmm, that is extremely strange -- I am unable to reproduce either issue. Can you attach the script (just to make sure nothing gets lost by pasting the contents into a post) and perhaps a screen shot of the non-moving / fixed radiobuttons?

Here I attached the script for the problematic SE block.

Here's the screenshot (when I scroll down):


Thanks -- I'm baffled, no idea what's causing this (still no luck reproducing, not with the attached script either), but will investigate. Are you seeing this across multiple different devices or just one particular one?


I only used my Mac and the web inquisit on my Mac, and they were the same.
Per you suggestion I tired using a different Mac with the web inquisit...and it works okay!
Seems to be an issue with my Mac?

Hi, I'm experiencing an issue here with the following code. It seems that the SE block and the SDO block are exactly the same in terms of structure, but only the SDO block runs as intended. For the SE block, however, when I scroll down the page, only items move but the radio buttons don't move at all. And the "continue" button is not showing up. Anyone knows why? (the SDO block used to have the same issue and I have no idea how I fixed it...)

Thanks!

Sounds like it, but right now I have no clue what specific setting or configuration on that particular Mac may be responsible.

Per you suggestion I tired using a different Mac with the web inquisit...and it works okay!
Seems to be an issue with my Mac?

> Seems to be an issue with my Mac?

Sounds like it, but right now I have no clue what specific setting or configuration on that particular Mac may be responsible.

Thank you for the help! Hope it won't be an issue with other people's computers (but I will never know...)...because I'll test many other people online using this script...
