The Tutorial Project
There are several sample projects that we have created for
you. We will start with the project called Demoform.prj. You may
create your own new project, but we will cover that later.
Getting Started with the Tutorial:
When you open SurveyWin, you will see a box entitled Project.
In the box labelled Project name, click on the arrow and scroll
down until you see DEMOFORM. Select this one to start you off.
- Select Form Design. A submenu will pop up, with four
choices. From these, select Electronic Form.
- A typical page pops up, with 4 questions, and a Save
button. Click on the Save button. You will see black
squares (we call these handles) appear around it. Now all
of the commands and instructions you supply apply on this
item. It is the focus of your work.
- Put the mouse pointer on one of the corner black squares
around the Save button, hold down the left mouse button
and move the pointer to the right, left, up, or down and
release the left button. The size of the button will
change. Do it again, and you will notice you can make the
button any size you want.
- Next, put the mouse button inside the box outlined by the
'handles' around the Save button and press and hold the
left mouse button. Now, you can move the entire button to
another place on the page. Try moving it to the upper
right corner of the screen. This process is call Drag and
Drop, which is the term used when referring to any type
of movement of objects.
- Now, click on one of the questions: for instance, "I
need to use SurveyWin for the following
applications". Notice what happens when you move the
question to another place in the screen: the response set
moves with it.
- Now, click on the response set corresponding to the
question, (i.e. Very important, Important, Not very
important) by clicking on the Very Important button. As
usual, the handles appear. Try moving it to another part
of the page. Note that the question text does NOT move
Note: The square outlining a response set is not
resizable. Only question text and control buttons (like Save,
Next, Previous, and Skips) have resizable handles. Also note that
the 'size' of a response set is just the size of its first
