Version: v1.8.15, released at Wednesday, November 25, 2020, Total Issue Count: 9

Product Type Description
survey-library Bug Does not show correctly detail panel in matrix on error for mode "underRowSingle"

If detailPanelMode is "underRowSingle" then the last detail panel with errored question(s) closes previous detail panels with erorrs. It should not.

survey-library Bug React: Warning: setState(...): on making invisible the current page

Getting this issue

survey-library Enhancement Introduce "showItemsInOrder" option for radiogroup/checkbox items.

See this ticket for more details.

survey-library Bug Header text is wrong positioned if header image on the left/right side of it
survey-library Bug Composite component doesn't preprocess text with "composite." prefix

The following JSON in composite component doesn't work:

{
      type: "dropdown",
      isRequired: true,
      renderAs: "select2",
      choicesByUrl: {
        url: "https://www.universal-tutorial.com/api/states/{composite.country}",
        titleName: "state_name",
      },
      name: "state",
      title: "State",
    }

We do not pre-process this variable {composite.country}, where 'country' is another question in the composite component.

survey-creator Enhancement Do not show second time the default locale in survey.locale and translation tab

By default we have "Default (English)" and "English" locale. It confuses end-users. We should remove "English" locale in our case and any default locale, in case, it is different from English.

survey-creator Bug Modern theme: The "Refresh" button is almost invisible in default value editor
survey-pdf Bug Not printing result for boolean elements when valueTrue/valueFalse used.

Hello.

While testing pdf library we found that bug. A question like this:

  {
   "type": "boolean",
   "name": "test",
   "defaultValue": "false",
   "label": {
    "en": "test question"
   },
   "valueTrue": "1",
   "valueFalse": "0"
  }

produces this result

{"test":"1"}

This works fine in browser but when printing to pdf with survey-pdf prints as false. pdf generation only works with {"test": true} Should evaluate result against valueTrue and valueFalse for printing.

Thanks

custom-widgets BreakingChange Bootstrap datepicker - need to use UTC

We need to use UTC as stored date/time format. It should correctly selects date, write it to question value in UTC and restore. See the https://surveyjs.answerdesk.io/ticket/details/t5725/bootstrap-datepicker-need-to-use-utc thread for more details

This is possible breaking change

Product Type Description
survey-library Enhancement Add detail Panel for dynamic and dropdown matrices.

Optionally, show detail panel for every row. It should take elements from detailElements property or developer could create them in code via event. The functionality is required by Creator v2.

New added properties:

  • detailPanelMode, ["none", "underRow", "underRowSingle"]. Default is "none", the detail Panel is not shown. "underRow" - shows the detail panel under the row and "underRowSingle" works as "underRow" but allows to show only one detail panel, it hides the previous opened detail panel.
  • detailElements - the array of elements that detail panel shows.
  • detailPanel - the template panel. detailElements equals to detailPanel.elements
survey-library Bug survey-react: lazy rendering works slow in comparison with survey-knockout and survey-vue platforms

See the https://surveyjs.io/Examples/Library?id=survey-lazy&platform=Reactjs&theme=modern example.

React adds new question slow. It re-renders all elements on the page. Removing changing state on changing "elements" array, since we need to react on "rows" array only and do not rerender rows and their elements that are not changed. It improves performance in almost x10 times in case of 10 questions on the page, x100 times in case of 100 questions on a page and x1000 times in case of 1000 questions on the page.

survey-library Bug Survey title text overflows header container

The following code will generate the JSON schema

Survey.Serializer.generateSchema();

It will contain all properties/components/customwidgets you have added. It will take into account removing/changing properties as well. Use the following code to generate the text:

JSON.stringify(Survey.Serializer.generateSchema(), null, 4)

This code can be used on client(browser) or in NodeJS server code.

survey-library Bug Accessibility bug in knockout: generates same id for errors in different row in matrices.

If there are several errors in one column in different row, then we generate the same error id for different rows in knockout.

survey-library Bug Accessibility: Add aria-expanded and aria-controls into panel expand/collapse button

For panels that has expand/collapse buttons aria-expanded and aria-controls attributes are required.

survey-creator Bug Area for dropping questions on empty panel is not shown if it has elements on loading

Steps to reproduce. Load survey in SurveyJS Creator with a panel and a question it it, then delete the question. The area for dropping questions, "Please drop a question here from the Toolbox" is invisible and you can't drop anything on the panel.

survey-creator Enhancement Refactor disabling question elements in designer

We have a specific code for "dynamic panel". We should remove this check and make the code question type agnostic.

onPropertyChanged or onItemValuePropertyChanged question callbacks doesn't work when item of ":multiplevalues" property checked/unchecked. For example, it leads to incorrect work of Undo/Redo functionality in Creator. UPD: Here is the simple example:

Survey.Serializer.addProperty("carowner", {name: "letters:multiplevalues", choices: ["A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F"] });

SurveyJS Creator creates a list of checkboxes from "A", ... ,"F" and the value of the property is an array on letters.

Currently, the SurveyJS Library creates a standard property for this type, while it should create a wrapper for JavaScript array to override push/pop/unshift/splice functions and call property change notification.

survey-library Bug checkErrorMode equals "onComplete" doesn't work correctly with the server validation

There are two issues there. At first server validation, survey.onServerValidateQuestions event, executed on next page, and doesn't take into account that checkErrorMode is "onComplete". The second issue, on focusing question it doesn't change the current page and if the question with the error is located on a previous page, not the last one, end-user will not see any error and the last page will be the current one.

survey-library Bug Do not generate an empty rows error for matrix dynamic if it not requried and minRowCount is set

The original issue came from SurveyJS Support Desk.

survey-library Enhancement Add removeNonExisingRootKeys parameter into survey.clearIncorrectValues function

Add removeNonExisingRootKeys parameter, it is false by default.

//@param removeNonExisingRootKeys - set this parameter to true to remove keys from survey.data that doesn't have corresponded questions and calculated values
public clearIncorrectValues(removeNonExisingRootKeys: boolean = false);
survey-library Enhancement Add requiredIf property to the Panel
  /**
   * An expression that returns true or false. If it returns true the Panel becomes required.
   * The library runs the expression on survey start and on changing a question value. 
   * If the property is empty then isRequired property is used.
   * @see isRequired
   */
panel.requiredIf(): string;
survey-creator Bug Translation tab should not offer to translate properties with isSerialized attribute equals to true

Translation tab creates a group for non serializable properties. It should not.

survey-creator Enhancement Change the way of how hovered question will be highlighted

At the moment question actions are shown on question hover. Sometimes (for elements in the same line) this leads to actions overlapping and weird UI. See the https://surveyjs.answerdesk.io/ticket/details/t5530/start-in-new-line-view-bugs thread for more details.

I've changed hover question highlighting from actions display to showing question border on hover

survey-library Bug React warning with slider component: setState(...):Cannot update during an existing state transition

Warning: setState(...): Cannot update during an existing state transition (such as within render or another component's constructor). Render methods should be a pure function of props and state; constructor side-effects are an anti-pattern, but can be moved to componentWillMount.

this warning appears every time when i click next

survey-library Bug survey.getProgress() logs weird output on console

I have some questions that have visible: "false" That means they are invisible to users.

I want to track the survey completion progress. So, I have set the following: "progressBarType":"questions"

Then I have this in the js file: var surveyProgress = survey.getProgress(); console.log(surveyProgress);

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

bug

asking question

What is the current behavior?

survey.getProgress() logs weird output on console. Even when the survey is answered fully then also the progress is not 100 percent.

What is the expected behavior?

If say 6 out of 23 visible questions are answered then the progress should be 26 percent.

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

survey-library Enhancement Add autoComplete property into text Question

autoComplete property set the autocomplete attribute for html input tag.

survey-library Bug When survey checkErrorsMode is "onComplete" then the question with the first error is not focused

Let's say we have the following JSON:

{
      checkErrorsMode: "onComplete",
      pages: [
        {
          elements: [
            { type: "text", name: "q0" },
            { type: "text", name: "q1", isRequired: true },
          ],
        },
        {
          elements: [{ type: "text", name: "q2", isRequired: true }],
        },
        {
          elements: [{ type: "text", name: "q3", isRequired: true }],
        },
      ],
    }

If a user click button "Next" and then "Complete" without entering any data, then it should come back into first page and the question "q1", the first question with the error should be focused. Currently it doesn't work correctly, question "q0" is focused.

survey-library Enhancement Add settings.matrixMaxRowCountInCondition

By default we show one row with all columns in condition property editor. For example: dynamicMatrixQuestionName[0].columnName. You can change this property to show more rows, by setting it to 2, Survey.settings.matrixMaxRowCountInCondition = 2; will add colums for the second row as : dynamicMatrixQuestionName[1].columnName if matrix rowCount is 2 or bigger.

The original request came from SurveyJS Support Desk.

survey-library Enhancement react: Refactor render() and reactive properties

Disable reactive properties to change the element state during rendering by moving all rendering into protected renderElement(). Here is the render() function code in SurveyElementBase class:

  render(): JSX.Element {
    if (!this.canRender()) return null;
    this.isRenderingValue = true;
    var res = this.renderElement();
    this.isRenderingValue = false;
    return res;
  }

We should use renderElement() function in our react classes. The read-only protected isRendering property will block chaning state on changing the value react properties that can happen during react rendering.

survey-library Enhancement Add isUnique attribute into JSON property

This attribute works for objects that uses in arrays. Currently we use this attribute for matrixdropdowncolumn and calculatedvalue classes. Here is the definition of calculatedvalue.

Serializer.addClass(
  "calculatedvalue",
  [{name: "!name", isUnique: true}, "expression:expression", "includeIntoResult:boolean"],
  function() {
    return new CalculatedValue();
  },
  "base"
);

If you do not want to have a unique column names for matrix dropdown/dynamic please use the following code:

Survey.Serializer.findProperty("matrixdropdowncolumn", "name").isUnique = false;

  public addPage(page: PageModel, index: number = -1);
  /**

   * @param name a page name
   * @param index - a page index to where insert a new page. It is -1 by default and the page will be added into the end.
   * @see addPage
   */
  public addNewPage(name: string = null, index: number = -1) ;

Additionally makes the survey.createNewPage() function public:

  /**
   * Creates and returns a new page, but do not add it into the survey.
   * You can use addPage(page) function to add it into survey later.
   * @see addPage
   * @see addNewPage
   */
  public createNewPage(name: string): PageModel;

var newPage = survey.createNewPage("new Page");
newPage.addNewQuestion("text", "newQuestion");

survey-library Bug question.defaultValue and survey.clearInvisibleValues='onHidden' doesn't work correct together

Here is the small JSON

{

      elements: [

          name: "q1",
          type: "text",
          defaultValue: 1,
          visible: false,
        },
      ],
    }

By default question is invisible, but it has value since defaultValue set the value into question. However, it is not expected, since survey.clearInvisibleValues is 'onHidden'. On making the question visible, and then invisible and visible again, the value becomes empty, also it would be expected to have it 1, the defaultValue. We should keep the value empty until the question is invisible and set the defaultValue on making the question visible when survey.clearInvisibleValues is 'onHidden'.

survey-library Bug {question.length} may return undefined if q becomes undefined

We are returning 0 for even if question value is undefined and not an empty array. However, if the question1 value was the array, and then it becomes an undefined/null value then we start to return undefined, on using internal ProcessValue.getValueInfo() function. It uses the cached path and if a value in this path becomes undefined then it returns undefined as well. We should return 0. It is the expected value in an expression in this case.

The issue was introduced several months ago due perfomance optimization - we do not create the path for the complex values "a.b.c.d" on getting the value every time.

survey-library Enhancement Add access to a question for a custom function that calls from validator

The following code should work:

  FunctionFactory.Instance.register("getCustValue", function getCustValue(

  ) {
   //access to a question instance without passing it into params as question name: this.survey.getQuestionByName(params[0])
    return this.question.inputType == "number" ? this.question.value : 0;
  });
  var survey = new SurveyModel({
    elements: [
      {
        name: "q1",
        type: "text",
        validators: [{ type: "expression", expression: "getCustValue() > 5" }],
      },
    ],
  });
survey-creator Bug Changes into new added question onQuestionAdded event generates addition undo transactions

If there is a code like this:

  creator.onQuestionAdded.add(function (sender, options) {
    options.question.title = "new title";
  });

then it would require to click two times on "Undo" to remove the question. Changing title will be added as a new undo transaction. If there are several properties changes, then more "Undo" clicks would be required. The same story with onPageAdded and onPanelAdded events.

survey-creator Enhancement Update property grid element selector on changing any property of the selected object

creator.onGetObjectTextInPropertyGrid event can use any property of the selected object, not only name and title. Right now it is called on changing name and title properties only.

survey-creator Enhancement Force to update text in property grid element selector for a non selected element

Call the following code for example: creator.updateObjectTextInPropertyGrid(creator.survey.getQuestionByName("question1");

survey-creator Enhancement Allow to show help for properties in a property grid

To show the help in the property grid, you have to modify your localization as the following:

//Get default localization strings
var curStrings = SurveyCreator.localization.getLocale("");
curStrings.pehelp.title = "Here is the help for title property for all object types";
//If we do not define question_title/page_title/survey_title, then title help will be used.
curStrings.pehelp.question_title = "Here is the help for question title property";
curStrings.pehelp.page_title = "Here is the help for page title property";
curStrings.pehelp.survey_title = "Here is the help for survey title property";
survey-analytics Enhancement Make it possible to pre-process chart data before display

  public onGetQuestionNo: Event<

Example of using:

  survey.onGetQuestionNo.add(function (sender, options) {
    options.no = "a.b." + options.no + ")";
  });

or

  survey.onGetQuestionNo.add(function (sender, options) {
    options.no = "a.b." + (options.question.visibleIndex + 1) + ")";
  });

The following JSON will not work, untill the second matrix first row is empty:

{
    questions: [
      {
        name: "q1",
        type: "matrixdropdown",
        columns: [{ name: "col1" }, { name: "col2" }],
        rows: ["row1", "row2"],

      },
      {
        name: "q2",
        type: "matrixdropdown",
        columns: [{ name: "col3" }, { name: "col4" }],
        rows: ["row3", "row4"],
        cellType: "text",
      },
    ],
    triggers: [
      {
        type: "copyvalue",
        expression: "{q1.row1.col1} notempty",
        fromName: "q1.row1.col1",
        setToName: "q2.row3.col3",
      },
    ],
  }

Here is the small JSON

{
      clearInvisibleValues: "onHidden",
      elements: [
        {
          name: "q1",
          type: "text",
          defaultValue: 1,
          visible: false,
        },
      ],
    }

By default question is invisible, but it has value since defaultValue set the value into question. However, it is not expected, since survey.clearInvisibleValues is 'onHidden'. On making the question visible, and then invisible and visible again, the value becomes empty, also it would be expected to have it 1, the defaultValue. We should keep the value empty until the question is invisible and set the defaultValue on making the question visible when survey.clearInvisibleValues is 'onHidden'.

Description
{question.length} may return undefined if q becomes undefined

We are returning 0 for even if question value is undefined and not an empty array. However, if the question1 value was the array, and then it becomes an undefined/null value then we start to return undefined, on using internal ProcessValue.getValueInfo() function. It uses the cached path and if a value in this path becomes undefined then it returns undefined as well. We should return 0. It is the expected value in an expression in this case.

The issue was introduced several months ago due perfomance optimization - we do not create the path for the complex values "a.b.c.d" on getting the value every time.

Add access to a question for a custom function that calls from validator

The following code should work:

  FunctionFactory.Instance.register("getCustValue", function getCustValue(
    params
  ) {
   //access to a question instance without passing it into params as question name: this.survey.getQuestionByName(params[0])
    return this.question.inputType == "number" ? this.question.value : 0;
  });
  var survey = new SurveyModel({
    elements: [
      {
        name: "q1",
        type: "text",
        validators: [{ type: "expression", expression: "getCustValue() > 5" }],
      },
    ],
  });

If there is a code like this:

  creator.onQuestionAdded.add(function (sender, options) {
    options.question.title = "new title";
  });

then it would require to click two times on "Undo" to remove the question. Changing title will be added as a new undo transaction. If there are several properties changes, then more "Undo" clicks would be required. The same story with onPageAdded and onPanelAdded events.

creator.onGetObjectTextInPropertyGrid event can use any property of the selected object, not only name and title. Right now it is called on changing name and title properties only.

Call the following code for example: creator.updateObjectTextInPropertyGrid(creator.survey.getQuestionByName("question1");

survey-library Bug text question: min, max and step properties can not be loaded from JSON

The following JSON doesn't work:

{
    "type": "text",
    "name": "question1",
    "min": 0,
    "max": 100,
    "inputType": "number"
}

It will work if min and max properties put after inputType property. It should work in all cases.

survey-library Enhancement Introduce question.defaultValueExpression and text question.min/maxValueExpression properties

Current we require to use "=" in properties defaultValue and min/max to tell SurveyJS that we are entering the expression. For example: defaultValue: "=today(-1)", it will set the value by default to yesterday. Unfortunately, it is hard to create a decent UI for this type of property type, when it can be date or number or expression. We decided to introduce new properties that will come into Logic category. defaultValueExpression and minValueExpression/maxValueExpression where user can enter the expression in expression property editor.

Old JSON will continue to work, but on loading from JSON other properties will be used. For example defaultValue: "=today(-1)" will be converted into defaultValueExpression: "today(-1)".

survey-library Enhancement Introduce lazy rendering mode for page/panel rows content

At this moment all logically visible questions on a page or panel rendered always during page rendering. If one has a lot of questions (especially complex questions like matrices) this heavily impact survey page rendering time.

Proposed solution: not to render content (questions) of rows that in the first moment are out of the scrolling area and not visible in the current viewport.

survey-creator Enhancement Allow to restrict expression operators

The original request came from SurveyJS support desk. Currently, there is no way to remove some operators. From v1.8.5 it can be done by using this code:

  delete SurveyCreator.SurveyPropertyEditorFactory.operators.contains;
  delete SurveyCreator.SurveyPropertyEditorFactory.operators.notcontains;
  delete SurveyCreator.SurveyPropertyEditorFactory.operators.anyof;
  delete SurveyCreator.SurveyPropertyEditorFactory.operators.allof;

It will remove "contains", "notcontains", "anyof" and "allof".

survey-library Bug [feature request] radiogroup: radio button with bigger targeted area.

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

feature

What is the current behavior?

clickable only on radio button

What is the expected behavior?

target area should be 'the whole line' of the radio button. even better, highlight the clickable area when hover.

before I use surveyjs, I made this work. probably I can revive it by customise the css. in my opinion, this should be the default behavior?

survey-library Enhancement support strings "{number}.{number}.{number}" for survey.questionStartIndex property

We do not support questionStartIndex with several numbers like "1.2.10". The second question should have number "1.2.11", or "1.2.10." - the second number is "1.2.11." or "(1.2.10)" - the second number is "(1.2.11)".

survey-library Bug Edit buttons in preview mode do not redirect to the correct page/question

#1813 # Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question? Probably a bug

What is the current behavior?

From the preview page (showPreviewBeforeComplete), if you want to edit a question in a survey that have some pages not visible because of some conditions (visibleIf) then your are not redirected to the correct page/question.

What is the expected behavior?

Being redirected to the right page when clicking 'Edit' from the preview page

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

  1. Using the json below in Survey Creator
  2. Answer 'No' on page one. This will make the page 'page_not_visible' not visible.
  3. Then continue until the preview.
  4. Click preview. So far all is good.
  5. Click the edit button of the question 'Question visible' to edit your answer.
  6. Problem -> your are not redirected to the right page because page name 'page_not_visible' is not visible.

survey-library Bug onLoadChoicesFromServer event is fired ad-infinitum

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

Bug Report

What is the current behavior?

onLoadChoicesFromServer event is fired ad-infinitum when SurveyModel.data is modified in an event handler, the choicesByUrl url is constructed from the value of another question, and a third question unrelated to those two are modified.

What is the expected behavior?

onLoadChoicesFromServer should only be fired when the choices are loaded from the server and not when unrelated questions are modified.

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

Minimal repro case:

https://stackblitz.com/edit/surveyjs-bug-5zdops?file=app/surveyjs.component.ts

There are 4 requirements to reproduce:

  1. Add an event handler to onLoadChoicesFromServer
  2. The handler must change the SurveyModel.data
  3. The dropdown question must use choicesByUrl with a url that is templated from another question. In the repro case, it use the value of another dropdown: https://pokeapi.co/api/v2/pokemon?limit={q_limit} where question q_limit define a few numeric values.
  4. A question other than these two must be modified and lose focus to trigger a modification. If you modified 'Limit' it won't happen, just reload the tab and only modify the text field in the repro case.

In the repro case, open the project in a new tab (I highly recommend that because otherwise the editor will become unresponsive) and open the console of your browser. Then, write a value in the question "Text field" and click outside the window.

You will see hundred of console logs from the onLoadChoicesFromServer call. The browser will eventually detect it and terminate the loop but in the case of our more complex application this never stop and create a few important issues.

Requesting a feature

What is the current behavior?

  • If progressBarType=pages the progress bar is calculated using only visible pages of the survey.
  • If progressBarType=questions the progress bar is calculated using all questions. If the survey contains invisible questions or the user skipped non-required questions, the progress bar shows 7/9 when the user has actually finished the survey.

What is the expected behavior?

A new option which only uses visible and required questions to calculate the progress bar should be implemented.

  1. Count all visible and required questions
  2. Count all visible and non-required questions that were answered
  3. Add up these numbers. This is the total amount of questions
survey-library Enhancement Optionally disable conversion variable in expression from string to numeric or boolean

In the most case it makes sense to convert string to numeric, if this conversion is doable. In this case expression will work with them as numeric when possible. For example, the expression: " + ", where val1: "1" and val2: "2" will return 3. However, in some cases developers need to have these variables as strings and want to have the result "12". To support both scenarios, we are adding the following '#' variable prefix to disable the conversion. " + " will return 3 and " + " will return "12".

survey-library Bug Do not check for errors for non value and read-only questions

We should not check for errors for questions like "html" and "expression".

survey-library Enhancement File question type - reset isUploading to false in case of uploading error

At the current moment the isUploading flag isn't changed to false if uploading callback is called with the error result. This might block the UI or break the further work with this question. We need to reset isUploading to false in case of uploading error.

See the https://surveyjs.answerdesk.io/ticket/details/t5105/upload-keeps-loading-when-upload-actually-failed thread for more details.

survey-library Enhancement Allow to set visibleIndex to questions with hidden title and title numbers (optionally)

By default we do not set visibleIndex for questions with hidden title or title numbers: question.titleLocation = "hidden"; or question.hideNumber = true;. For example, if question2 has hideNumber equals to true then survey renders question titles as: "1. Question 1", "Question 2", "2. Question 3". In some scenarios, developers want to have visibleIndex for question with hidden title and/or hidden numbers and they want survey to render the question titles as: "1. Question 1", "Question 2", "3. Question 3". question2.visibleIndex, in this case, is 1 instead of -1, but question.no is empty string in both cases.

To get this behavior set to true two new settings:

Survey.settings.setQuestionVisibleIndexForHiddenTitle = true;
Survey.settings.setQuestionVisibleIndexForHiddenNumber = true;
survey-library Enhancement Allow to enable/disable caching for choices from webservice by url

Reporting a bug

What is the current behavior?

If a new value is assigned to SurveyCreator's readonly property the change is applied only partially in the interface:

  • Fields in the properties pane of the current element remain unchanged - editable or readonly depending on the previous state.
  • Inline editing of the current page's title and description remains unchanged - enabled or disabled depending on the previous state.
  • Inline editing of the Survey's title and description remains unchanged - enabled or disabled depending on the previous state, Once disabled it cannot be enabled anymore.

To see the interface reflect the new setting (enabled or disabled) the user must select a different element (i.e. select a different Page). Then the fields become editable or readonly as expected depending on the value of the setting.

What is the expected behavior?

When readonly is set to false all editing must become enabled, also for the currently selected element. When readonly is set to true all editing must became disabled.

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

Change the value of readonly and observe that the interface doesn't reflect the change.

sorry to register this small bug for that is probably a simple fix for a css person, but I couldn't figure out what was causing it. (not being a css person)

example distilled down https://plnkr.co/edit/o2vInwNbg4PuOdTp?preview

Product Type Description
survey-library Enhancement Make `imageLink` in image question type localizable

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

Feature

What is the current behavior?

The imageLink property of a image type question does not support localization.

What is the expected behavior?

Ideally the property should support localization just like the survey logo URL.

survey-library Bug Notification on chaning a custom property in matrix column is not fired

On adding a new property into a question, for example: Serializer.addProperty("text", {name: "prop1", category: "general"}), matrix column will create this property dynamically on setting cellType to "text". However, the notification on changing this property in matrix column will not fired, because the property will actually changed in template question of this column. We should fire notification for this dynamic property, otherwise changing property value of the matrix column in the code will not update a SurveyJS Creator property editor.

survey-library Bug onValueChanging and onValueChanged behaves differently in cascade dropdowns scenario

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

question/bug

What is the current behavior?

when using cascade dropdowns when changing the first one (region in the plunker) onValueChanging and onValueChanged callbacks are regularly called for that question but they are not for the second one (country). Specifically two incoherent things happened:

  • onValueChanging show undefined oldValue
  • onValueChanged is not even called

What is the expected behavior?

I track changes monitoring through onValueChang(ed/ing) callbacks and I would expect the same behavior for question that are not directly changed by the user

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

survey-library Bug Setvalue trigger not executed in `questionPerPageMode`

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

Bug

What is the current behavior?

In a specific scenario a setValue trigger is not executed

  • "questionsOnPageMode": "questionPerPage"
  • Target question is in a panel

Note that both of these are required for the erroneous behavior

What is the expected behavior?

It should successfully execute the trigger

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

survey-library Enhancement Introduce "rowValue" variable for matrix dropdown row

There is not access to row.value for a matrix dropdown row. It is needed in some column expressions (visibleIf, choicesVisibleIf) when you want to show/hide cell questions or some choices based on a row value. For more information, please read a ticket on SurveyJS support desk.

survey-library BreakingChange Do not remove values on hidding columns/rows in matrices if clearInvisibleValues is not onHidden

We are clearing values on hidding matrices rows and columns, even if clearInvisibleValues is "onComplete" (default) and even if it is "none". We are going to remove hidden rows/columns values from matrices only if clearInvisibleValues is "onHidden" and on finishing survey if clearInvisibleValues is "onComplete".

survey-library Bug 1.7.26 incorrectly executes logic

Note that this bug breaks surveys that are running, so this is a big issue.

What is the current behavior?

Logic seems to be executed differently in .26 vs .25, see the attached screen recording. This is the JSON used.

survey-library Bug Incorrect detection of the requiredInAllRowsError in matrix question

Are you requesting a feature, reporting a bug or asking a question?

Bug

What is the current behavior?

Incorrect detection of the requiredInAllRowsError error in QuestionMatrix when the value of any of the columns is 0 and the isAllRowRequired flag is set in the Vue version of SurveyJS. If you select a matrix item with a value of 0, then the requiredInAllRowsError will appear when the poll ends, as if this item was not selected at all. This behavior is only present in the Vue version of SurveyJS, in the others (jQuery, React, Knockout, Angular) everything works as expected.

How would you reproduce the current behavior (if this is a bug)?

Use Vue version of SurveyJS library and this config:

{
 "pages": [
  {
   "name": "page1",
   "elements": [
    {
     "type": "matrix",
     "name": "question",
     "title": "What's up?",
     "isRequired": true,
     "columns": [
      {
       "value": 0,
       "text": "No"
      },
      {
       "value": 1,
       "text": "Maybe"
      },
      {
       "value": 2,
       "text": "Yes"
      }
     ],
     "rows": [
      {
       "value": 1,
       "text": "Question 1"
      },
      {
       "value": 2,
       "text": "Question 2"
      },
      {
       "value": 3,
       "text": "Question 3"
      }
     ],
     "isAllRowRequired": true
    }
   ]
  }
 ]
}

Choose any answer options, at least one option "No" and complete the survey.

survey-creator Enhancement Add creator.onGenerateNewName event

There is a way to set the name to a new created element, for example question. However, there is no way to say that the automatic generated name doesn't work for you and you need another one. Here is the example of usage:

creator.onGenerateNewName.add(function(sender, options) {
  //We need to have unique names with another survey
  options.isUnique = anotherSurvey.getQuestionByName(options.name);
});

Event declaration:

  /**
   * The event is called on generation a new name for a new created element.
   * <br/> sender the survey creator object that fires the event
   * <br/> options.element a new created survey element. It can be question, panel or page
   * <br/> options.name a new suggested name, that is unique for the current survey. You can suggest your own name. If it is unique, creator will assign it to the element.
   * <br/> options.isUnique a boolean property, set this property to false, if you want to ask Creator to generate another name
   */
  public onGenerateNewName: Survey.Event<
    (sender: SurveyCreator, options: any) => any,
    any
  > = new Survey.Event<(sender: SurveyCreator, options: any) => any, any>();
survey-creator Enhancement Add unit test to creator.onConditionQuestionsGetList event

There were not unit test for creator.onConditionQuestionsGetList event.

survey-creator Bug Survey is not rendered after creator tab set changed or designer tab has been re-rendered
custom-widgets Bug New properties for widgets goes to "Other" category

UPDATE: All new properties for widgets missed the category name.

The sample seems to not be working when you select phone on input mask in the sample https://surveyjs.io/Examples/Survey-Creator?id=customwidgets&theme=bootstrap#content-result it just renders the work 'phone' in the input box

The other question I had (and the reason I was looking at the sample) was:

how can I get the Input Mask property up to the general tab? I tried the normal way of moving items:

 SurveyJSCreator
            .SurveyQuestionEditorDefinition
            .definition["survey"]
            .properties = [
...
     { name: "inputFormat", tab: "general", title:"My Mask" },
]

It didn't work, I realize this is a widget, so maybe there's a different way of doing it.

Thanks Marc
