Options - Length and wraping?
Author Lyle Birdwell on 12-26-2002 at 13:46 (EST)
using uTestAnswer5.class, I am noticing that my options are showing up as a set length of about 22 or 23 chars. Can I adjust this for longer options? What about long options that need to wrap, like 2 or 3 sentence options?

Thanks

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 >
-------
