Kratek opis

This question types allows survey administrators to a create large arrays with numbered dropdown boxes with a set of subquestions on the "y-axis", and another set of subquestions on the "x-axis".

You can also set a special question attribute to use this question type with checkboxes.


Splošen opis

The Array (Numbers) question type allows a large array of numbered dropdown boxes with a set of subquestions as the "y-axis", and another set of subquestions as the "x-axis". It provides for a very large display of question and answers. By default the dropdown box contains the numbers from 1 to 10, however this can be changed by adjusting the advanced question settings.

The behavior is like this:

  • If you only specify a minimum value the range will adjust as min value + 10
  • If you only specify a maximum value, the range will be 1 and maximum value.
  • When both minimum and maximum value are present and if the minimum value is greater than the maximum value, no dropdown box will be displayed otherwise it works as usual.

Obvezno (obvezno)


S pomočjo te nastavitve lahko določite ali mora anketiranec odgovoriti na vsa vprašanja ankete. Če ustvarite vprašanje z več podvprašanji, lahko z nastavitvijo min_answers določite, da bo anketiranec odgovoril le na določene dele ankete in ne vse.

Help.pngIf you use any of the preinstalled themes and the mandatory question attribute is enabled, a red asterisk will be shown next to the question. If you wish to hide it, please check these instructions.

Veljavne vrednosti

  • Da
  • Ne (privzeto)

Enačba relevantnosti


Vsako vprašanje vam omogoča določiti enačbo relevantnosti, ki je naslednik pogoja. Z enačbo relevantnosti lahko ustvarite veliko bolj zapleteno pogojno logiko.

Označevanje sintakse

Kadarkoli boste shranili enačbo relevantnosti, bo ovrednotena, pregledana bo tudi sintaksa enačbe. Morebitne napake bodo barvno označene, tako da jih boste lahko hitro odkrili in popravili.

 Hint: To check if all conditions are used correctly within your survey, read about our show logic file feature.

Veljavne vrednosti

Vsaka enačba, ki uporablja sintakso Urejevalnika izrazov, brez zavitih oklepajev.


Uporabni primeri: Označevanje sintakse.

QS:Preg validation/sl


Answer width (answer_width)


This value sets the answer column width by using a percentage system. For example, if you type in this field 40, then 40 percent of the width of the question will be used for answers. The remaining width will be equally divided between the subquestions.

Valid values

  • Any integer value from 1 to 100.

Hide tip (hide_tip)


Most questions will usually include a tip that says "Please choose one of the following options" or a hint text on how to fill out the question. This attribute allows you to turn off or on this tips/hints.

These tips/hints include validation criteria messages (such as min/max number of answers, min/max/equals sum value). If hide_tip is enabled, these messages will be hidden. However, if the user enters invalid data, the tips will appear. They will be coloured in red, getting changed to green once the validation criteria are met.

Available options

  • On - the tips/hints are hidden;
  • Off (default).

Get order from previous question (get_order_previous_q)


This function is used when you want to keep the order of the subquestions from a previous question the same. This is useful if that question has the randomization option enabled.

Valid values

  • Any question code

Deutsch • ‎English • ‎Nederlands • ‎español • ‎français • ‎slovenščina • ‎日本語


Naključni vrstni red odgovorov (random_order)


V tem primeru sistem LimeSurvey ne upošteva vrstnega reda odgovorov oziroma podvprašanj. Razvrsti jih povsem naključno. Pri tem načinu se vrstni red odgovorov spremeni vsakič, ko se vprašanje znova prikaže, kar pomeni, če se v anketi anketiranec vrne na prejšnje vprašanje se bo vrstni red zopet spremenil. Naključni vrstni red vprašanj omogoča nepristransko odgovarjanje na vprašanja. Naključnost odgovorov na vprašanje omogočite pri nastavitvah posameznih vprašanj.


  • Vklopljeno
  • Izklopljeno (privzeto)


See this example (outside link) to better understand how to use different LimeSurvey randomization features.

Text input box size (input_box_size)

 Hint: This features is available starting in version 3.0.0


This function allows you to set the size of the text area (the text input box). By default, LimeSurvey forces the input box to be displayed with a default size. This can be overridden by making use of this function.

Help.png To move the box on the next line, you need to increase the size of the wrapper. To do so, increase the value of the text input width attribute.

Valid values

  • Any numeric value

Reverse answer order (reverse)


If activated, the order of the answers will be reversed.

Available options

  • On
  • Off (default)


Let's assume that you want to use an Array (Numbers) question type. If this option is disabled (default value), then the possible answers a survey participant can select are: "1, 2, 3, ... , 10". If enabled, the setting will reverse the order of the available answers: "10, 9, 8, ... , 1".

QS:Multiflexible checkbox/sl

Repeat headers (repeat_headers)


This option can be used if you add to a question a high number of subquestions. If this is the case, use this option in order to tell LimeSurvey after how many subquestions should the headers be repeated.

Valid values

  • Any integer values;
  • The default value is 0 - the repeat headers function is deactivated.

Question theme (question_theme)


It allows you to use customized themes for the respective question.

Available options

  • Your created question themes which are located under the Question themes in the Themes panel.


Help.png Note: This feature is under development at the moment.

Always hide this question (hidden)


If enabled, the question will always be hidden - it will not be displayed to the survey participants. This function can be used in the following scenarios:

  • If you wish to prefill a question with a URL and you want not to have it displayed on the screen. This overrides any conditions used within the survey because the respective question will not even be embedded on the page.
  • If you wish to store or calculate a value on the fly via the ExpressionScript - Presentation.
Help.png Note: A common question type that is used with this function is the Equation one.

Available options

  • On
  • Off (default)

CSS class (css_class)


If you want to add special CSS classes to certain questions, you can enter the CSS class name(s) in this box. Make sure you leave an empty space between different class names.

Valid values

  • Any text string with a space between different CSS class names.
 Hint: You can also insert an expression in this box (New in 3.0.0 ). Remember that the output of the expression will not be updated dynamically.

Important.png  According to the W3C, CSS class names can contain only the characters [a-zA-Z, and 0-9] and ISO 10646 characters U+00A1 and higher, plus the hyphen (-) and the underscore (_). They cannot start with a digit, or a hyphen followed by a digit. LimeSurvey encodes CSS classes, but it does not fix it totally.

QS:Multiflexible min/sl

Text inputs (input_boxes)


It is available only for the Array (Numbers) question type.

The answer has to be typed within a text box if this option is enabled. The step value will not be used. The respondents can submit a numerical value as answer.

The minimum and maximum values can also be set up from the question display options.

Otherwise, the survey participants will have to choose from a dropdown list the answer option to the question.

Available options

  • On - the input box is used
  • Off (default) - the dropdown list is used

QS:Multiflexible step/sl

QS:Multiflexible max/sl

Relevance help for printable survey (printable_survey_relevance_help)


If you wish to print a survey, you can also print the relevance equations for each question. But, if you wish to offer instead an explanation rather than the expression on the printed form, fill in this box with the text explanation for the relevance equation.

Valid values

  • Any text and/or numbers you wish to be displayed on the printable form.


Input maximum characters (input_max_characters)


The following option allows you to type in a numerical value that will represent the maximum number of characters that can be entered by the survey respondents in the answer text box(es) of the respective question.

Valid values

  • Any numerical value


  • If you wish the survey participants to type in a short and concise answer, introduce within the input maximum characters field a small number (e.g., 10-15).


QS:Min answers/sl

QS:Max answers/sl

Filter polja (array_filter)


Filter polja vam omogoča izbiro odgovorov, ki se prikažejo v naslednjem vprašanju z lestvico.

Od verzije 1.92 dalje je možno filtrirati odgovore za nadaljno vključevanje v vprašanja polj, vključno z:
  • Izbira več možnosti
  • Izbira več možnosti s kometarji
  • Več kratkih tekstovnih odgovorv
  • Več številčnih odgovorov
  • Lestvice in polja (5 stopenjska, 10 stopenjska, Da/Ne/Ne vem, Povečalo/Ostalo enako/Zmanjšalo, Stolpec)
  • Lestvica (Dvostopenjska lestvica, besedilo, števila)
  • Razvrstitev

Prav tako so lahko filtrirana tudi vsa ta vprašanja.

Edina izjema je tip vprašanja Polje (stolpci), ki se lahko uporabi za filtriranje drugih vprašanj, medtem ko ta vrsta vprašanja ne more biti filtrirana.

Nastavitev filtra

Za nastavitev filtra vnesite kodo vprašanja z več možnostmi. Na primer, če je koda vprašanja "Q1" vnesite "Q1" v vnosno polje "Filter polja" ali v vnosno polje "Izločitev filtra polja", ki se nahajajo znotraj naprednih nastavitev vprašanja, ki ga želite filtrirati. Vidni bodo samo odgovori, ki so bili izbrani znotraj vprašanja Q1.

If you wish more questions to be filtered via this option, type the question codes in the box separated by semicolons (;).
Important.png  The subquestion codes used in the first question must coincide with the subquestion codes from the second one. Otherwise, the array filter function will not filter the answers to the first question. Note: When you want to filter the "other" answer option from the first question, you need to provide a subquestion for this answer in the second question and the subquestion code for this answer needs to be "other". Check the below example to better understand how the whole system works.

If multiple choice allow other setting: you can choose other for subquestion code and filter with other checked or not.


The selected options can be displayed in cascade. This means that you can select a question which filters another question, which filters another question, and so on.

Array filter example

Let's take a look at the following example to better understand the power of this setting:

Array filter with multipe short text.jpg

In the screenshot from above, we got two questions. The first one is a multiple short text question type, while the second one is an array dual scale question type. The answers you provide in the first question will be listed in the second one. Technically, the answers you provide to the subquestions from the first question are filtered and displayed in the second question.

This example can be downloaded from the following link: limesurvey_group_32.lsg. Import this question group into your LimeSurvey installation.

QS:Array filter exclude/sl

Array filter style (array_filter_style)


This function allows you to choose how the array filtered subquestions are displayed. They can either be "hidden" or "disabled".

Help.png To learn how to filter subquestions, please read the following wiki section.

Available options

  • Hidden (default) - if this option is selected, then the previously selected subquestions will not be displayed in the second question.
  • Disabled - if this option is selected, then the previously selected subquestions will be greyed out and become unselectable.


If you wish to use the "disabled" option, then the previously selected subquestions will be displayed like this:

Randomization group name (random_group)


It places the questions into a specified randomization group, all questions included in the specified group being displayed in a random order to the survey respondents.

You can find a sample survey using randomization group name in ExpressionScript sample survey.

Valid values

Just enter any string you like (for example: 'group1'). All question which have set the same string within the randomization group name box will have their place in the survey randomized (=randomly exchanged among each other).

Preview To preview the questions use the preview survey instead of the preview question group function, as the second has been reported to not show the questions in a randomized order.

Question validation equation (em_validation_q)


This is an equation that is used to validate the entire question (e.g, all of its parts collectively for a multi-answer question). If the question fails the validation criteria, then em_validation_q_tip message will be displayed (it uses the CSS style .error). This tip uses the .em_q_fn_validation CSS style, which is hidden by default within template.css.

The main difference between this feature and the subquestion validation equations (em_validation_sq option) is that for this feature, if the question (or question parts) fail validation, then an error message could be shown. For the subquestion validation, each text entry cell (e.g., in an array question type, but it can also be applied to single entry question types) will be styled so that the background color is (light) red.

Veljavne vrednosti

  • Any equation that makes use of the ExpressionScript syntax, without surrounding curly braces.


  • You want to collect demographic information from users via a multiple short text question, and you want to validate that the user has entered a valid email address and phone number.

This example shows how the question looks with invalid answers:


And here is what it looks like with one invalid answer:


Here is how you edit a question to enter that information:


And here is part of the Show Logic File output that lets you check the accuracy of your expression and ensure that there are no syntax errors:


As you can see, the validation equation tests that both the email and phone number are either empty or match a regular expression filter.

The validation tip only shows the warning message if the phone or email appears invalid.

 Hint: In order to create complex validation messages, read about the usage of the ExpressionScript.

If you wish to import the example from above into your LimeSurvey installation, download the following .lsq file:

 Hint: Remember, LimeSuvey uses the Perl syntax for regular expressions, so they should start and end with / (slash character)!
