[solved] form_multiple_choice code not saved

edited September 2013 in OpenSesame

I need to use the multiple choice plug-in in my experiment i.e. the form_multiple_choice. I need to use 20 of these forms. I did the experiment & it runs accurately. The problem is when I close OpenSesame, & open it the next time all multiple choice forms are blank, everything gone. Tried saving each separately, together & also in the file pool, doesn't work. Can you please help me? Its really tiresome to open the experiment each time & write all multiple-choice forms again.

    Hi,

    Nope. I am using Windows 8.

  • Hi Manasi,

    Okay, thanks for your quick response.

    Could you perhaps paste the OpenSesame code of (a couple of) your multiple choice items here? You can find the code by clicking on the 'edit script' button.

    Hi

    set allow_multiple "no"
    set description "A simple multiple choice item"
    set question "I feel irritated right now"
    set button_text "NEXT"
    set advance_immediately "no"
    set form_title "Measure 1"
    __options__
    Strongly agree
    Agree
    Disagree
    Strongly disagree
    __end__
    

    this is it.

    Hey,
    The code for all my MCQs is the same, only the question & the form title changes. Can you help?

    Thank you for your earlier responses. :)

    Hi Manasi,

    I see what you mean: Changes in the form_multiple_choice items are indeed not saved. Thanks for pointing that out, I filed it as an issue here:

    As a temporary solution (i.e., before this bug is fixed) you could use form_base items (as replacements for your form_multiple_choice items) by pasting (something like) the following OpenSesame script in the script editors:

    set rows "1;1;1;1;1;1"
    set cols "1"
    widget 0 0 1 1 label text="I feel irritated right now"
    widget 0 1 1 1 checkbox group="1" text="Strongly agree" var="response"
    widget 0 2 1 1 checkbox group="1" text="Agree" var="response"
    widget 0 3 1 1 checkbox group="1" text="Disagree" var="response"
    widget 0 4 1 1 checkbox group="1" text="Strongly disagree" var="response"
    widget 0 5 1 1 button text="Next"
    

    Does this answer your question?

    Best wishes,

    Lotje

    All right. This does answer my question for now.

    Thanks a lot

    :)
