Displaying MCMS result

Apr 11, 2008 at 12:13 PM

I have successfully created a working web survey that displays results for all the MCSS (Multi Choice Single Select) questions. However, not being adept as XSL, I am having difficulty trying to display results for MCMS. Do you (or anyone else) have any template examples that I could use to point me in the right direction.

Many thanks,

Has anyone got any ideas on this?

I thought I had a XSLT file that handled this, but I dug back through my files and was unable to find it.  I might be able to re-create it, but I'm not sure when I'll get to it, as (IIRC) it is somewhat involved.

I had the same problem and solved it like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
  <xsl:output method = "html" indent = "yes"/>
  <xsl:template match = "/">  
    <xsl:for-each select = "//SurveyResult/Question">
      <xsl:variable name = "type" select = "@type"/>    
<xsl:if test = "$type = 'mcms'">
        <xsl:variable name = "qid" select = "@id"/>
            <xsl:value-of select = "//SurveyResult/Question[@id = $qid]/Statement"/>
        <xsl:variable name = "null" />
        <xsl:variable name = "total" select = "count(//SurveyResult/Answer[text() != $null and @questionId = $qid])"/>
        <div style = "margin-left: 15px;">
          <xsl:for-each select = "//SurveyResult/Question[@id = $qid]/Responses/Response">
            <xsl:variable name = "res" select = "."/>
            <xsl:variable name = "sum" select = "count(//SurveyResult/Answer[contains(text(),$res)and @questionId = $qid])"/>
            <xsl:variable name = "per" select = "$sum div $total * 100"/>
            <xsl:variable name = "len" select = "round($per * 4)"/>
            <xsl:value-of select = "$res"/>: <xsl:value-of select = "(round($per * 100)) div 100"/>%
              <xsl:attribute name = "style">
                vertical-align: middle; margin-bottom: 15px; border: solid 1px; border-color: #99ccff #99ccff #336699 #336699; background-color: #6699cc; width: <xsl:value-of select = "$len"/>px;
        <b>Total Votes: </b>
        <xsl:value-of select = "$total"/>

Bikerbene you are 'The Man' (or Woman). Many thanks that seems to work a treat.

Steve, please take note. Might I suggest you include Bikerbene's code in your sample file.

Thanks Bikerbene!  I'm going to put on my TODO to include this XSLT in my TestHarness, if that is okay with you?

For sure. Thats cool that you like it. It just took me half an hour to change your code into this even though I'm not a coder ;)
