Creating a Row Header

A row header creates a row in the table that is purely for labeling the rows below it, but does not actually collect any data.

Steps

  1. In the Rows Tab of the Mult-Control Table Editor
  2. Select the Row Header type in the drop-down
  3. Enter the Header – Piping may be used
  4. Enter any Show-If Logic (see the page on question table syntax)
  5. Enter any CSS Styles used for the Header
  6. Click Add Row

Creating Row Prompts

A row prompt is used to label a row that will collect data.

Steps

  1. In the Rows Tab of the Mult-Control Editor
  2. Select the Row Prompt type in the drop-down
  3. Enter the Prompt – Piping may be used
  4. Enter any Show-If Logic (see the page on question table syntax)

Creating Row Prompts With Text Field

Steps

  8. Decide on the Text Field Size and Maximum Characters
