"Multiple choice answers"

Posted by Traci Beck [Tracimariek@cs.com] on at 01:15 PM
I am using the applet for the drop down list of multiple choice questions (uTestAnswer5). I cannot get the entire choice to display. It only displays half of a choice. I have tried to increase the width field from 110 up to 1000, but it doesn't help.

Here's what it would look like:
A. shall not be used as a speed ref


should say:
A. shall not be used as a speed reference

Can you give me the URL of the HTML page so that I can take a look at it? Or maybe just email us the HTML page if it is not available online?

Also, remember that you can use regular HTML to put long questions/answers on the page... and then just use the uTest multiple choice applets to collect the user's input.

For example, you could use regular HTML to put a question like this on the page:

-------
Which one of these long answers is true?
A. This is a very, very long answer.
B. And here is another very, very long answer.
C. And here is yet another very, very long answer.
-------

Then you could add a uTest applet to just get the user's A, B, or C selection, such as:

-------
Select answer:
< APPLET CODE="uTestAnswer3.class" CODEBASE="../classes/" WIDTH=270 HEIGHT=30 >
< PARAM NAME="number" VALUE="1" >
< PARAM NAME="options" VALUE="A,B,C" >
< PARAM NAME="first_letter_only" VALUE="YES" >
< PARAM NAME="points" VALUE="5" >
< /APPLET >
-------

or maybe:

-------
< APPLET CODE="uTestAnswer7.class" CODEBASE="../classes/" WIDTH=300 HEIGHT=30 >
< PARAM NAME="number" VALUE="1" >
< PARAM NAME="label" VALUE="Select Answer:" >
< PARAM NAME="options" VALUE="A,B,C" >
< PARAM NAME="points" VALUE="5" >
< /APPLET >
