Hello all,

First of all, I would like to thank you for your all support as an online Soscisurvey team.

I have a questionnaire which tests the participant's language knowledge (if they know Rnglish, German, or etc.).

I want participants to rank the (13 given) languages in the questionnaire. My questionnaire is multilingual btw. This was the original php code for this issue:

if (value('LS01_01') == 2) {   replace('%Lang1%', 'Turkish'); } if (value('LS01_02') == 2) {   replace('%Lang2%', 'English'); } if (value('LS01_03') == 2) {   replace('%Lang3%', 'Arabic'); } if (value('LS01_04') == 2) {   replace('%Lang4%', 'Bulgarian'); } if (value('LS01_05') == 2) {   replace('%Lang5%', 'Azerbaijani'); } if (value('LS01_06') == 2) {   replace('%Lang6%', 'Turkmen'); } if (value('LS01_07') == 2) {   replace('%Lang7%', 'German'); } if (value('LS01_08') == 2) {   replace('%Lang8%', 'Albanian'); } if (value('LS01_09') == 2) {   replace('%Lang9%', 'Greek'); } if (value('LS01_10') == 2) {   replace('%Lang10%', 'Persian'); } if (value('LS01_11') == 2) {   replace('%Lang11%', 'French'); } if (value('LS01_12') == 2) {   replace('%Lang12%', 'Spanish'); } if (value('LS01_13') == 2) {   replace('%Lang13%', 'Chinese'); } if (value('LS01_14') == 2) { replace('%OtherLang1%', 'LS01_14a', 'response'); } if (value('LS01_15') == 2) { replace('%OtherLang2%', 'LS01_15a', 'response'); } if (value('LS01_16') == 2) { replace('%OtherLang3%', 'LS01_16a', 'response'); }  $itemliste = getItems('LS01', 'is', 2); if (empty($itemliste)) {   goToPage('PLS16'); } question('LS02', $itemliste);

So now, I have different coding for the ranking part like this: which works perfect.

for ($i=1; $i<=13;$i++) {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}  {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%Lang'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} if (value('LS01_14') == 2) { replace('%OtherLang1%', 'LS01_14a', 'response'); } if (value('LS01_15') == 2) { replace('%OtherLang2%', 'LS01_15a', 'response'); } if (value('LS01_16') == 2) { replace('%OtherLang3%', 'LS01_16a', 'response'); }  $itemliste = getItems('LS01', 'is', 2); if (empty($itemliste)) {   goToPage('PLS16'); } question('LS02', $itemliste);

For the further page, I ask the participant about their abilities in the languages they already chose. (These languages are ability language1, ability language2 .....3, ....4 etc.)

I made the coding like this for ability language 1 orignally like this:

if (value('LS01_01') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_01');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Türkçe');   } }  if (value('LS01_02') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_02');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'İngilizce');   } }  if (value('LS01_03') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_03');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Arapça');   } }  if (value('LS01_04') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_04');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Bulgarca');   } }  if (value('LS01_05') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_05');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Azerice');   } }  if (value('LS01_06') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_06');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Türkmence');   } }  if (value('LS01_07') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_07');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Almanca');   } }  if (value('LS01_08') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_08');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Arnavutça');   } }  if (value('LS01_09') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_09');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Yunanca');   } }  if (value('LS01_10') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_10');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Farsça');   } }  if (value('LS01_11') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_11');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Fransızca');   } }   if (value('LS01_12') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_12');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'İspanyolca');   } }  if (value('LS01_13') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_13');   if ($language == 1) {     replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'Çince');   } }  if (value('LS01_14') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_14');   if ($language == 1) {   replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'LS01_14a', 'response');   } }  if (value('LS01_15') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_15');   if ($language == 1) {   replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'LS01_15a', 'response');   } }  if (value('LS01_16') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_16');   if ($language == 1) {   replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'LS01_16a', 'response');   } }

I changed it like this de here`

for ($i=1; $i<=13;$i++) {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} {if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}}{if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));}} if (value('LS01_14') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_14');   if ($language == 1) {   replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'LS01_14a', 'response');   } }  if (value('LS01_15') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_15');   if ($language == 1) {   replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'LS01_15a', 'response');   } }  if (value('LS01_16') == 2) {   $language = value('LS02_16');   if ($language == 1) {   replace('%AbilityLanguage1%', 'LS01_16a', 'response');   } }

To be honest, I copied this 13 times (as I have 13 different languages) and I don't know how to create LOOP for that :( to avoid copying.

Can I use the same coding(that I used for ability language1) for ability language2?

Hope, I will solve the problem soon with your help,

Once again many thanks,

Please also post the PHP code used to display questions/items with the placeholders.

Please format the php code as code, using the {} button.

In my opinion, you made yourself too much work. This is all the code, you need for the closed-ended questions:

for ($i=1; $i<=13;$i++) {
  if (value(id('LS01', $i)) == 2) {
    replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));
  }
}

You may even skip the IF part, as it does not hurt to set more palceholders:

for ($i=1; $i<=13;$i++) {
  replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', getItemtext('LS01', $i));
}

And then you have some open-ended questions in LS01_14 to 16. Just use them in a similar way:

for ($i=14; $i<=16;$i++) {
   replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%', id('LS01', $i).'a', 'response');
}

This is equal to:

for ($i=14; $i<=16;$i++) {
  $language = value(id('LS01', $i).'a');
  replace('%AbilityLanguage'.$i.'%',  $language);
}

Ans now, the only thing left is to show the next question that contains the placeholders. I am not sure what you did so far, but that is probably the loop() part of your question? If it is, please tell me what should be displayed for each language that fulfills what condition?
