Summary14315: Expressions with array number/checkbox are not reloading properly

The problem is with Questions #2, 2b, 2c and 2d in my survey. It is an Array (Numbers) with the checkbox option. This is a mandatory question with 8 sub-questions.

The next three questions (Q2b,c,d) only pop up if certain boxes are checked in Question #2.

Here's the problem I am encountering:

I filled in some of the sub-questions for Q2 and leave the others blank.
Q2 b,c and d popped up as expected.
I completed the rest of the questions on the survey then clicked submit.
As expected, I got an error message that said 'One or more mandatory questions has not been answered. You cannot proceed until these have been completed'.
I go back up to Q2, but notice that Q2b,c and d have now disappeared.
I check off the missing boxes from Q2.
Q2b and c come back up if I click the appropriate columns in Q2, and they appear to fine.
Q2c comes back up if I click the appropriate column in Q2, but it is only filtering the new sub-questions I selected the second time. All of my previous sub-questions I selected the first time are gone.

Steps To Reproduce

To duplicate error, for Q2 select:
Sanger for Breast Cancer
Pyrosequencing for Colorectal Cancer
Real-Time PCR for Gastrointestinal Cancer
NGS for Glioblastoma
leave the rest of the sub-questions blank.
Fill in whatever you want for Q2b,c,d & Q3, then hit submit.
The error message 'One or more mandatory questions...' will pop up.
Scroll back up to Q2 and you'll notice that Q2b,c,d are no longer visible.
You can get 2b and c to come back by selecting Real-time PCR or NGS for another sub-question, however I shouldn't have to this. I should be able to see my previous responses.
However, for Q2c if you select Pyrosequencing for Thyroid cancer, you'll notice that Colorectal is no longer showing up. Since Pyrosequencing is selected for both Colorectal and Thyroid now, both should be showing up as sub-questions for Q2c.

Additional Information

Refer to LimeSurvey support ticket LS-SMCR-OQMK-CKTS for original question. It also has a link to a live survey that you duplicate the error in.

The lss file for a shorter version of this survey is attached. Let me know if you need me to make this survey active.

TagsNo tags attached.

I don't understand this condition :
!is_empty(Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK) && (Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK == Q2_SQ001_SQ004)

why not use !is_empty(Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK) only ? (Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK == Q2_SQ001_SQ004) must bet always true (since Q2 didn't have any condition or are filtered).

If i don't make logic error : you can surely fix by
Q2b: count(Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK,Q2_SQ002_SQ004.NAOK,Q2_SQ003_SQ004.NAOK…)>0
Q2c: count(Q2_SQ001_SQ005.NAOK,Q2_SQ002_SQ005.NAOK,Q2_SQ003_SQ005.NAOK…)>0

There still a error in Expression (surely related to !is_empty(Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK) && (Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK == Q2_SQ001_SQ004) )

I deleted the code '&& (Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK == Q2_SQ001_SQ004.NAOK)' etc for questions 2b, c & d, but the expressions are still not reloading after I duplicate the problem. New .lss is attached with the revised code.

No, confirmed is just confirmed. If i work on it : assigned.

If you are a limesurvey customer (support ticket), maybe on another way.

This is older. Good that it is reported now - needs to be solved in one of the upcoming releases

@DenisChenu, don't remember it in 2.73. Have been used this kind of expressions in survey mode for a while - spotted it once with the launch of LS 3

Great! Thanks for the fix.

Any way to know when the new version with this fix will be available? I need to figure out if I can wait for the new version before I activate my survey, or if I need to figure out a work around.

Quick fix (if have FTP access)

Thanks for trying with the quick fix. I replaced the file, but I'm still running into the same issue. All my answers in Q2 are cleared out and Q2b, 2c and 2d disappear whenever any mandatory question on my survey is left blank and the submit button is clicked. I'll probably figure out a different way to set up this question, but wanted to report that it's still not working.

Maybe another difference between 3.15.1 and 3.15.5 because it work on my test with you survey.

Maybe : try to deactivate ajax mode on theme option

reporter   ~49976

Really, it's working for you? I just updated to version 3.15.5 and deactivated ajax mode and I still can't get it to work.

Just so I know we are on the same page, let me ask you this....
Keep Q2 as is in your your screenshot above
Fill in 'AAA' for all three questions in Q2d
Hit Submit
After you do that and you scroll back up to Q2 & Q2d, do you still see all the responses you entered before you hit submit, including all the check marks in Q2 and the 'AAA' for each question in Q2d?

For some reason when I do it, all my check marks in Q2 are gone and I can't even see Q2d anymore, unless I check pyro-sequencing or send out again in Q2.

If you can still see all your answers, then I'm at a loss. I'll just rework the questions in my survey and see if I can get it to work after a future update.
