Autofill of Grid-Answers


we want to autofill evaluations via a grid, which are based on a previous grid-evaluation which has been done on the same page.

A example would be: the respondent evaluate the brand Mercedes with a 6 (on a 10-point scale) and all the Mercedes-models, which are listed below also gets automatically a 6 (autofill). The respondent can leave the evaluation for the Modells or can change the evaluation for a specific model (e.g. Mercedes SLK).

Is there any way to create such a autofill-function?

Thanks for your support!

Which version of SSI are you using?

Doing things dynamically on a page requires JavaScript in order to "pick up" on an event happening on the page (mouse click, etc.) and then do something in return (find the radio button with a specific name and set it to checked).  In order to do something like this in SSI Web, you probably would need to use a free-format question so that you can add event listeners to the various radio buttons, and then write some code that said "If the third radio button for Q1_r1 is selection, find Q2_r1 and select the third radio button as well."
