Manage Interview (v14) – XpressDox

The ribbon

With the launch of XpressDox low code, or version 14, a Manage Interview button has been introduced to simplify the process of sequencing fields on your interview.

 

 

The sequence of fields on the interview:

By default, the interview is constructed in the sequence in which data elements are encountered in the template. In the past this could be overridden using commands such as CaptureLater or CaptureDataElement. But this process is now made much easier with the invention of the Manage Interview button. Suppose you have an interview such as this one, with no tabs:

 

 

Manage Interview:

Clicking on Manage Interview will display all the data elements in a pane docked to one side of your template.

 

InterviewSequence:

Now you can drag a data element to a new position in the list.

Afterwards an «InterviewSequence()» command is added to your template, indicating the sequence of the fields on the interview.

Note that most of the text in that command is marked as hidden text, so although it is inserted into the document looking like this:

Editing / deleting tabs:

Use the buttons indicated below to edit the name of a tab, or to delete it entirely.

 

Tab orientation (full code):

Have a look at TabOrientation should you want to change your tabs to vertical instead of horizontal. And if you want to place Back and Next buttons on your interview, you could also look at the InterviewIsWizard commands. Both of these are available from the Command Assistant, and are considered full code when you are ready to dig a bit deeper into the program.
