[solved] recording "checkbox" responses

edited January 2016 in OpenSesame

Hello and happy new year!

I am writing after reading

I have a form with 4 checkboxes and I want to know which were checked (Allowing multiple responses).
I called the variable "Answer".
In the log file "Answer" = No.

Can you please tell me what am I doing wrong?

Another little question: How can I align the columns in the text to the left?

here is what I wrote:

widget 0 0 5 1 label text=Instructions

widget 0 1 1 1 image path="[target].png"

widget 1 1 1 1 image path="[img_A].png"

widget 2 1 1 1 image path="[img_B].png"

widget 3 1 1 1 image path="[img_C].png"

widget 4 1 1 1 image path="[img_D].png"

widget 1 2 1 1 checkbox text=A var=Answer

widget 2 2 1 1 checkbox text=B var=Answer

widget 3 2 1 1 checkbox text=C var=Answer

widget 4 2 1 1 checkbox text=D var=Answer

widget 2 4 2 1 button text=continue

Thank you so much!!

    Hi Labovich,

    I'm unable to reproduce this problem when i copy your form, so in essence you're not doing anything wrong. The only solution i can think of is the obvious one: did you log all variables in your logger item and, if so, have you tried manually adding your Answer variable in the logger item?

    Another little question: How can I align the columns in the text to the left?

    If you add center=False in your text widget the text will be alligned to the left

    Let me know if it works,

    Thanks Laurent!
    It didn't record because for some reason the order of the logger and the form changed. Now it's working great!

    About aligning - can you please tell me where exactly should I add center=False?

    Thanks again!

    Hi Tali,

    The accidental switch sounds way too familiar :)

    You can add the alignment into any text widget:

    widget 0 0 5 1 label center=False text=Instructions

    Thanks again Knante!
    will the same trick work for other widget, like checkbox?

    As far as i know it works for label and button widgets only, the checkbox text is automatically aligned on my end
