Summary04751: Adding attribute fields in the register form of a survey
DescriptionArouse the need in the registration form of a survey, that the custom attributes could be filled up in the form (only appear names and e-mail), currently this can be achieved loggin in and add manually the "participant" with the custom attributes.

So, i found in the common.php and register.php (common_functions.php and register.php in the limesurvey_dev repository) some commented code that meets my needs, and realized that it code was taking the approach, as the "static way".

I write some code, and now works like a charm, regardless of the number of attributes that exist.

See .diff's attached.
Additional InformationAbout the implementation, in the common_functions.php i use the function GetTokenFieldsAndNames to get the custom attributes as hash map, and for each key (name of the field) its generate a html input tag concatenating the word "register_" with the key.

In the register.php we calculate the extra number of custom attributes with the name of the field, and dinamically appends to the insert sql statement.

It's a fast solution, but we call two times the function GetTokenFieldsAndNames.
TagsNo tags attached.

In general it looks okay, but the patch assumes that by default all attribute fields are visible in the register page. There should be a way to configure what fields are visible in the rgister page (would be best in the attribute field configuration). Could you do that?

Please note that we feature-freeze for 1.91 soon so we would need your updated patch within the next 5 days.

It will be a honor to help, to accomplish this task i propose to add another field in the tokens_xxxx table, with the syntax simmilar to the attributes fields, something like this:


So it's a way to show the fields in the registration form (register.php) and in the tokens management (tokens.php), we display with a checbox if shows or not.

Another idea?

Now i find myself with little time (finals in college), i don't think that 5 days will be sufficient, but if you want i'll do it! sooner or later.. hehe

Now i'm free, and i have time if you wish i'll acomplish this issue!

Another proposal may could be adding to the existing extra attribute field another token after the value, something like this:

attribute_2=Phone Number=no
attribute_3=Social Number=yes

what do you think?

I think that sounds great. Make sure your patch will be based on [^] and it should be created with SVN diff.

Also make sure it is backward compatible (defaults to 'no') after the installation was upgraded.

CrystalBlood, any news on this? It would be really great to have this feature at one of the next Limesurvey versions.

Sorry c_schmitz and Mazi!
I'm in college exams!
My activities on this issue were frozen for a moment.
No problem if you wait a little longer? or you are in a great hurry?

Thanks for getting back in touch with us. We prefer a tested, working solution so there is no problem if it takes a little longer. We are very happy that you are working on this!
