Survey element types

Jump to: navigation, search

Elements building a survey are divided in two types: "question" or "format".

The semantics which distinguishes between "question" or "format" is this: a "question" is the form element providing what remote user submitted, "format" is ONLY a form aesthetic element.

Questions such as formats differ each other by plugin.

There are some question plugin provided with survey such as some format plugin too.

So hierarchically a survey is done by:

  • Survey form
    • elements
      • element type questions (shortly called "questions")
        • question plugin 1
        • question plugin 2
        • question plugin ...
      • element type formats (shortly called "formats")
        • format plugin 1
        • format plugin 2
        • format plugin ...
