Description: Describes how to use a Matrix Header in a survey to display a series of questions in matrix form.
The Matrix Header question is used to start a Matrix Question, which displays a number of questions in a matrix format. Here is an example of a Matrix Header question.
The following is a description of the fields in the Matrix Header question editor:
- Question - Entry field for your question text. You can use the formatting toolbar to add formatting to the question such as text size, text formatting (bold, italic, underline), color, etc.
- Enter column headings - Lists the answers, or "columns" of the matrix. Enter the list in bullet format.
- Row heading width - The numeric width (in pixels) of the row heading section of the matrix question. To autosize the rows enter the text auto.
- Column width - The numeric width (in pixels) of the column heading section of the matrix question. To autosize the columns enter the text auto.
