The following is a description of the fields in the Number Box question editor:

  • Default Value - Sets the default answer choice for the question.  If the question has Possible Answers (i.e. Multiple Choice, Select Many), this value must be the exact text (case sensitive) of the answer choice.
  • Text box display length - Sets the character width of the text box.  Note that this is only the display length of the text box and does not limit the length of the respondent's answer.
