Show or hide questions

You can show or hide a question in a questionnaire using the Show topic in the Questionnaire window. You can use this to display different question formats in different output editions, for example a grid may fit better on a large screen and a drop-down list may be easier to use in a mobile edition.

The Show topic has two functions:

  • Showing or hiding a question or individual elements of a question in the questionnaire.
  • Displaying multi-choice questions, grids and semantic scales in different formats.

Showing or hiding the question

  1. Select Show from the toolbar topic menu.
  2. Select (All) from the question element list.

When the question is hidden you can still access it by selecting the Hidden label.
