How do I add a slider to my web survey?

by on August 15, 2009

Q: I am trying to create my own survey with Dreamweaver. I’m using the older version Dreamweaver 8 (not the CS version). I’ve done great so far, but I want to add a few survey questions that use a slider (0 – 100%), where people can slide the application to say what percentage they agree with something. I found a nice slider application called jquery. But, can I use a jquery slider without surveypro? If so, how do I do it? If not, does anyone know of anywhere else I can find FREE script for a slider application?

    Jquery is a library written in javascript to take advantage of Ajax. Ajax, which stands for asynchronous javascript and XML, is a term used to describe client side technology for web applications. So the slider you found was probably written using jquery, which again is just javascript, so it should be pretty easy to integrate into your application.

    I, however, would suggest you just ad 4 or 5 radio buttons to your survey each with a specific percent associated with it. Sliders can sometimes cause problems as people cannot get the value at the exact spot they want and it will also make it harder for you to get reports. With a slider you get 100 different values but with radio buttons you would only have 4 or 5 different values.
