Using data collected from repeat

Hi list.

How, if it's possible, to use the data collected from a repeat (for
example, a list of names and birthdays) as select options in
a succeeding question?

Best,

Nik

I do not know the answer, so I suggest trying it to see if it works.

I have a feeling JavaRosa might have a problem because you can't
access data from a repeat outside the repeat
because I think JavaRosa doesn't know which answer you are pointing to.

Has anyone on the list had success accessing repeat data outside of the repeat?

To echo what Waylon said, I'm not 100% but my layman's understanding is
that because you don't know ahead of time what the binding will be for the
individual repeat data then you can't reference it outside of the repeat
group.

I think you can reference data inside of the repeat if that helps.

e.g.
Question A
repeat group start
Question B1
Question B2
Question B3 - is the sum of B1&B2 <- works
repeat group end
Question C - is the sum of all B1s <- does not work

I think it would be useful if it did though!

Thank you for your replies. I did try it but as pointed out by Sarah, it
doesn't work, and I thought I made some mistake trying to access it.

It would be very useful if it was supported. I could see scenarios where
interviewers could save time not having to re-input the same things all
over.

Best,
Nik

Hi

Does anyone know if this is possible yet? To use the information in a
previous repeat cycle, in my case names of household members, in a later
question as select options. Such that you could ask "Out of the family
members, who does a certain task?"

Many thanks
Carl

You might want to try joining and posting to the JavaRosa Developers
mailing list to see if they know how or try to push for the feature.
Open Data Kit currently uses the JavaRosa library to maintain
compatibility with other xform projects. Therefore, the change will
need to be made in JavaRosa to support your goals.

Thank you Waylon.

In the meantime, could anyone suggest any technique on how to go about
something like this with what we have right now?

Carl,

See indexed-repeat() at
http://opendatakit.org/help/form-design/binding for how to pull out a
value from a previous interation.

As to loading it into a select option, you have to be clever with
concat to build the values into a space separated list.

Is it possible to get a sample xls form with the use of indexed-repeat implemented. I would like to go through one.

Beginning with ODK Collect 1.4.3, I believe you should also be able to do
something like this:

if( position(current()/..) = 1, 'no data yet',
/data/repeater[position(.)=position(current()/..)-1]/value )

from

/data/repeater[2]/value

to access

/data/repeater[1]/value

and, from the first value, it would report 'no data yet'

But I haven't actually tested that...
