Relevant if a specific option in a select multiple question has been selected

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to specify a relevant clause when you
want that question asked only if a specific option is selected from a
checkbox question?

  • if question a has options with values 1,2,3, 99
  • Then I'd like question b to be relevant if the user selects 99 so
  • option 1 and option 99
    • options, 2,3 and 99
  • But not if they just select 2 and 3

Any hints gratefully received.

Regards

Neil

Neil,
You use the 'selected' attribute, like this:

this questions shows when question 1 (a Multi) has the option '99' selected.
It will show if any combination of options that include '99'

relevant="selected(/data/q1, '99')"

You can combine that with 'and' to require that more than one multi option
is selected.

relevant="selected(/data/q1, '99') and selected(/data/q1, '2')"

Hi Mukanya,
Are you using XLSForm or creating the XForm directly?
If you could attach the XLSForm or XForm you are using that would help us
find the issue.

Use something like this: selected(${my_multi_choice_question}, 'option_1')

Hi Nathan

I attach the file so i only want the specify question to appear if other is
selected alone or is part of the selection list .I hope this is clear enough

In XLSForms the relevant formulas work a little differently. You do not
need to enter an XPath, you can enter ${question_name} instead. Also, you
shouldn't use quotes. So try this formula:
selected(${item_owned}, '99')
Hope this helps,
-Nathan
