[open] Forms: many checkboxes on one screen do not check

edited February 2013 in OpenSesame

Hi,

as always: I have a problem.

I created a form with many checkboxes, which looks like this:


set margins "100;200;100;200"
set rows "1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1;1"
set spacing "25"
set cols "1;1;1;1"
widget 1 18 2 3 button text="next"
widget 0 1 4 1 label center="no" text="Question?"
widget 1 3 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="A"
widget 1 4 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="B"
widget 1 5 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="C"
widget 1 6 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="D"
widget 1 7 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="E"
widget 1 8 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="F"
widget 1 9 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="G"
widget 1 10 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="H"
widget 1 11 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="I"
widget 1 12 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="J"
widget 1 13 2 1 checkbox var="awareness_response" text="K"

I cannot click the boxes, no checkes appear, when I click next, the variable "awareness_response" is "no".
It is just a version of a nother form with just two checkboxes, which works perfectly well.

Any ideas?

    The problem is that you're leaving your widgets very little room to breathe!

    Let's say that you're display height is 1024, then the effective height (minus margins) is

    1024 - 100 - 100 = 824px

    which leaves

    824/19 = 43px

    for each cell, as you have 19 rows. Each cell has a spacing of 25 pixels on each side, which leaves a widget height of

    43 - 2*25 = -7px

    Setting the spacing to 0 should fix your issue!

    Incidentally, writing this I notice that the widget spacing is described incorrectly here, which may have caused your confusion.

    Cheers!

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.
