Displaying different mouse-over images on must-have / unacceptable screens


Currently, I have a mouse-over at the attribute level in my ACBC study. For example, if my attribute is Brand and I have brands x,y,z as the levels, then there will be one mouse-over over the 'Brand' with an image that explains the brands x,y,z. This was cleaner than having to have a separate image mouse-over for every level in our survey.

The problem I am running into is that on the must-have / unacceptable screens, we are asking them about specific levels, so the mouse-over with the image of the entire attribute and all it's levels no longer makes sense. Is there a way to call a different mouse-over on the must-have / unacceptable screens? Sawtooth support says that I can add some code in the jquery, but I am not an experience programmer and am not sure how to go about this approach. Thanks

Page 479 of the SSI Web manual has some examples of customizing text based on which ACBC question you are on. For Must-Have questions you can do something like

[%begin unverified perl 

if(QUESTIONNAME() =~ /musthave/i) { 
    return "Attribute Name"; 

else { 
    return TOOLTIP("Attribute Name","Attribute description"); 

end unverified%]

to return a tooltip on non-Must-Have questions and just the attribute name on Must-Have questions. For your Unacceptable questions change

QUESTIONNAME() =~ /musthave/i


QUESTIONNAME() =~ /unnaceptable/i
