Text input and storing information

Postby cormac.conn » Fri Jan 09, 2015 3:58 pm

Hi guys,

I need some help with a scenario that a client is enquiring about.

It would be using a touch table, and the widget would need to work like this:

- Page 1: Pick an item from a list
- Page 2: Pick another item from a list
- Page 3: Pick another item from a list
- Page 4: Text input where the user can put in their name and contact details in order to win a prize

All the information from each page would need to be stored in a file. It can be separate word files or one large file, each user needs to be easily identified.

Is this scenario possible within WD? Let me know if you need any other info.

Hi,
It is Possible.
You can make it with a Excel Output Node.
in The first Cell the first answer, second cell second... At the end, the Name and e-mail.
than it goes to the next column.

Listview might be better.
You can also populate a dropdown from an excel sheet.

Hello,

ListViews can be exported as CSVs...way more portable and easier to edit and use.

Small interjection:

Saving data to Excel files only works per cell with this command:
SetExcelCellValue,File,Table,Cell,Value
The file also has to be a ".xls"-file to be working.

Cheers,
