bambambam05 created the topic: "Score" or "values" on a survey

Hi. I am in need of some assistance, for anybody with the time to help me, thank you.
I need to create a survey, but the thing is that i need to make so that each answer has a value to it. Example: How old are you? a) <50 years (this would have a value of 1 point) b)>50 years (this would have a value of 0 points).
All of the answers need to have a value like this, so that at the end of the survey, there can be a text telling you your results, depending on your "score" or "value".

There are multiple ways to make the calculation.

Do your questions consist of offered options or there are textfields for users to enter their answer?

If you have a form which consists of textfields, here is an explanation of how to make the calculation.

Go to your form's Advanced properties > More options > Scripts and in the Initialization script set Type to Custom. In the code area below put a code similar to this one:
function ff_FORMNAME_init()
{  setInterval( calc, 500);
} // ff_FORMNAME_init

function calc() {
    var res = Number(0);
    if( Number(ff_getElementByName("ageFieldName").value) < 50 )
        res = Number(res) + 1 ;
NOTE: In the code above you have to replace FORMNAME with the Name of your form. Then you need to add multiple if conditions with correct field names and number of points to be added.

Let me know whether you have managed to do so.
