This component is used when there are multiple answers options, but only one answer can be chosen. You can use this for all kinds of question, for example if you ask for the gender.
Adding answer options:
In the pop-up on the tab “Specific properties” you fill in the different answer options. The description is the answer the patient will get to see – continuing on with our example you fill in the descriptions of wed and unmarried. The value you fill in with the answer is used for importing and exporting files.
You can also fill in a score. This comes in handy if you ask a lot of these kinds of questions, link the scores to the answers and eventually want to count them.
Next, you can choose whether you want to hide the answer. This can happen when a answer option is no longer relevant, but you cannot remove it because data has already been entered.
Editing answer options:
Select the item you want to edit in the list on the left side. Edit the information on the right side. To save the changed information click on ‘edit’. The change has been saved.
After this you choose whether you want to display a standard value, and if so which one. The standard value is an answer that has already been checked. If you do not select a standard value, initially no answer is checked.
Display of answer options
Finally, you indicate how you want the answers to be displayed. If you click on “RadioButtonList” you see all the answers next to each other (or below each other if you click on “Vertical Alignment”). If you click on “DropDownList” you only see the answers if you unfold the dropdown menu. The first item on the dropdown menu is always empty, but you can also put your own text in here (e.g. “Select your answer”).
