Summary11725: Multiple numeric with slider : columns width

In Multiple numerci with slider : actual solution use 12/12 for columlns, but before we use some 50/50.

Think have a 6/6 is OK, but then with siffix and prefix : unsure where we need to put the prefix/suffix width inside label or inpout group

Steps To Reproduce

See the 2 screenshot : managed with different suffix/prefix system (using separator)

Additional Information

To add or not the suffix prefix : we can use a global system withPrefix /withSuffix for whole sub-questions (like we do for right answer in array question), but can be fixed after.

The separator can be really cool with no slider numeric question too (and easy to add)

I'm unusre too for the "reset" text : did we must show it or not ? If not : it's clear or not with an icon ?

There are some other bug with reset (must reset to the default place,not to null)

In both screenshots the question-text is too far away from the labels/sliders.
The text and the slider should be more "compact" and the optical middle should ignore the height of the handle with the number.

"Reset" button should contain text.

To give an example for "compact" slider question I attach a slider question from a different survey system. The handle with a number is there displayed when clicking the handle.

For "compact or not" :

  • we can bever know the size of whole answer part
  • If you have different multiple numeric question : think it best if you have same width for each column (else we can use display: table and leave all automatic)
  • We made the choice to use bootstrap, and bootsrap don't have a clean "display:table" system => if we use one : we break bootsrap.
  • You can set the width of answer column : easy to make choice of put 20% by default ( ~ col-3 i rhink)

I made an error : boostrap have display:table display:table-cell :

display:table in input-group
display:table-cell for .input-group .form-control, .input-group-addon, .input-group-btn

Just a lack of table-cell with less css than addon , somethink like this

.input-group-extra {
display: table-cell;
vertical-align: middle;
width: 1%;
padding: x y;

We can use ls-input-group-extra

BUT : if user want a multilinbe part here : it's break anything

See : for a quick example.

It canb make something near the screen shot, but something breaking with : multiline suffix-preffix / img in suffix-preffix

3 solutions :

  • core system think suffix/prefix must be little, and we use ls-input-group-extra for whole line.
  • core system allow anythink in suffix/preffix and then we have a big empty part (can be fixed set "answerwidth".
  • Add an extra attribute (again ....)

If possible I'd prefer to use the input-group-addon feature (see here as well, especially since for the non-slider "multiple numeric" layout it will be useful as well.

We should not assume that users will make use of complex texts for prefix/suffic including multiple lines.

Yes, we move to the other for this.

Just for confirmation : by DEFAULT : slider + subquestion in same line ?

updater   ~41078

Yes, for common/larger screen resolutions it is helpful to have it in the same line.
For lower resolutions having the subquestion text at the line above would be nice.
